Non-Core Subjects

Non-Core Subjects 

At Woodbury C of E Primary School, we are committed to bringing out the best in everyone. We do this with a creative and relevant curriculum which inspires and motivates all pupils to become the best they can be, along with achieving academic excellence.  

We will nurture and support our children and equip them with the skills they need to become confident, determined and respectful young people who have exciting and ambitious aspirations for their futures. We will do this by working together with parents, carers and the children to provide learning experiences which will: 

• Engage the children’s interest 

• Inspire them to want to know more 

• Motivate them to persevere  

• Empower them to develop skills of independence.  

Our bespoke curriculum framework, which we have developed and evolved over time, has 5 key principles: 

1. Our curriculum is based around our six core school values, outlined above. 

2. Our curriculum promotes the learning of key learning skills (BLP) alongside the learning of subject specific skills and knowledge. 

3. Our curriculum is thematic and enquiry-based, with links in learning made explicit. 

4. Our curriculum is experiential, providing children with real-life experiences and purposeful learning contexts. 

5. Our curriculum promotes active community engagement. We encourage pupils and provide opportunities for them to be full and active members of our school community, our village community and the global community. 

This page provides further information regarding each of the non-core subjects taught across the school. An overarching description of each follows in the text below and a detailed curriculum statement and skills progression for each can be found at the bottom of the page along with a curriculum overview for each.
