Warley Primary School


School Curriculum Intent

At Warley Primary School, we intend to provide children with wide and varied opportunities to access an exciting and engaging curriculum, which will create a thirst for knowledge and will help them to begin to make decisions about particular areas of curiosity. We hope that this will ignite a love for learning and this will lead to children starting to develop particular expertise or passion, which they may then want to develop at a deeper level as they continue through their education.

Our curriculum has been designed to meet the needs and interests of our children, whilst also providing opportunities which they do not have access to in order to make them culturally aware and expand their general knowledge.  

It is important to prepare them for life in modern Britain and so, through the introduction of new schemes of work in our curriculum, such as ESR, children are learning about hot topics, which will be relevant for their future. We aim for our children to be creative thinkers as we are preparing them for a world that we cannot fully envisage.

Our ultimate aim at Warley Primary School is to provide opportunities for children to be excited about coming to school to enable them to be enthused and happy learners, as this way, learning comes naturally.

 'I just thought I’d feedback that J is really enjoying the History topic. Most evenings she’s enthusiastically telling us about her learning and it’s lovely to hear about all the interesting ways you’ve been getting the information across to the kids. J has told us about drama, designing their own tapestry, listening to Latin music-its so nice to hear about the immersion in their learning experience they are having. She is really retaining so many key facts of the learning because of the brilliant way it’s being delivered to her.'  Feedback from a Year 1 Parent

 'Absolutely love to support this event. With every pupil putting in outstanding effort and some even pulling out herculean power right on the final straight. Well done all.'  Feedback from a Year 4 Parent regarding Cross Country.

 'B hasn’t stopped talking about ESR day this evening!  Thank you for a fun filled day of learning.' Feedback from a Year 2 Parent
