At the heart of Woodvale Primary Academy’s curriculum is a belief that all children are able to achieve and that all children are entitled to an exceptional curriculum. A curriculum that is rooted in rich learning experiences that develop knowledge and skills, where connections are made between and within subjects and where each discipline is given equal status.
Our learners experience sit at the heart of our curriculum to ensure that everything offered is to support and prepare them for school, work and life. We recognise the value in providing a balance of thematic and discrete teaching, which meets the requirements of the Primary National Curriculum. This is delivered primarily through Cornerstones Curriculum, Kapow Primary, Talk for Writing and Power Maths. In addition we have specialist teaching provision through Premier Sports. Northampton Music and Performing Arts Trust also support the delivery of peripatetic music tuition.
We recognise that this is just part of the full curriculum offer and ensure that our shared pedagogy develops our learners spiritually, morally, socially and culturally. We recognise the importance of embedding pupils personal development within all aspects of school life and provide a wide range of experiences for our pupils.
Summer Term Reconnection
Our priority for the summer term has been focussed on reconnection to support pupil health and wellbeing and provide a clear curriculum pedagogy which has been considered and adapted to meet the needs of the pupils in the most efficient way. Our subject leaders, through all foundation subjects have carefully considered the learning that took place during periods of closure and the planned curriculum and have adapted plans to reflect and include opportunities for reconnection and revisiting key concepts.
