Wickhambrook Primary Academy

Our Curriculum

At Wickhambrook we believe in the importance of helping our pupils develop as a whole person – happy and ready to take the next steps into their education and lives beyond Wickhambrook Primary. 

Our curriculum is unashamedly ambitious and vocabulary rich.

As a school that values research informed approaches to improve teaching and learning we are proud to have embedded CUSP (Curriculum with Unity Schools Partnership).

It is designed specifically to give our children what they need to strive and achieve their best.

Our curriculum supports children by:  

  • Increasing the exposure the children have of high level VOCABULARY and giving them opportunities to practise using these words.
  • A curriculum that improves KNOWLEDGE of the world, building upon what the children know to create new links.
  • Improving the RELATIONSHIPS that the children have with each other, building skills and abilities to work together.

Long-term plans have been created so that subject coverage is planned sequentially and with a clear rationale for making connections with prior learning, therefore learning is blended and refined. Please CLICK HERE to view our Long Term Sequence where you will find information relating to each key stage.

Within KS2 each child has their own iPad that teachers use as a tool to maximise the accessibility features and harness the learning potential that technology has to enhance the curriculum.

Our curriculum is designed to:

  • Ensure all pupils have high aspirations for themselves and others.
  • Develop a thirst and want for learning for all pupils.
  • Developing their independence and motivation as learners and their sense of responsibility as future citizens is at the heart of all our teaching and learning
  • Develop strong characters in order to be resilient and cope with life.
  • Cultivate creative individuals who collaborate and co-operate and can solve problems seeing failure as an opportunity to learn.
  • Develop pupils who can think critically and care about their learning so they always do the best they can do!
  • Foster pupils who care about their role as part of a family, community and the wider world; encouraging them to feel part of, and to contribute positively to fundamental British values.
