Our School Curriculum
At Weston Primary & Nursery School our Curriculum is designed to give all of our pupils the knowledge, skills and cultural capital they need to succeed. Our broad and ambitious curriculum is carefully planned and sequenced so that our children will thrive and develop self-confidence during their primary years, and so that they will be well-prepared for secondary school and, ultimately, for the rest of their lives.
The school’s Curriculum includes the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum.
The Evolution of Our School Curriculum
Over time, the school’s Curriculum has evolved and been refined. The latest revision of the Curriculum took place in Summer 2022, following a period during which the school taught a post-lockdown ‘Recovery Curriculum’ to its pupils. Staff continue to work, on an ongoing basis, on further improving our Curriculum.
Mixed Year Group Classes – Rolling Programmes
As in most small schools, children are taught in mixed year group classes. To ensure that all appropriate content is taught without pupils needing to repeat a topic (such as Roman Britain, for example), teachers have designed a rolling 3 year programme in many subjects in Years 1 to 6, with a rolling 2 year programme in Early Years.
Rolling 3 Year Programme (Years 1 to 6)
Rolling 2 Year Programme (Nursery and Reception)
