National Curriculum 2014

The following statement outlines our vision and expectations of the curriculum that we will be delivering in our school from September 2014.

“At Witton Church Walk, our varied, Christian based curriculum inspires pupils' thirst for knowledge and promotes a love of life-long learning in a creative, challenging and safe environment. Dynamic and enthusiastic teaching styles which are built on Christian values ensure that the children are engaged and confident to develop transferable skills for life. Our enrichment activities provided through the creative curriculum are fully inclusive and allow children to reflect on their place within the wider community."

At Witton Church Walk we ensure that each child receives the education that will enable them to reach their full potential.

In line with Government recommendations, we will not be moving children's learning into the next year group as we have done in previous years. Instead, we will be teaching them a broad and balanced curriculum that provides breadth and depth within each subject and provides children with the opportunity to work at a 'Mastery' level in each subject.

British Values

The social, moral, spiritual, cultural and our Christian values will be strengthened as our curriculum enables the children to understand the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of the laws, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Throughout school, you will see a variety of teaching and learning opportunities which enable our children to understand:

1. Democracy

How citizens can influence decision making through a democratic process

2. The rule of law

An appreciation that living under the rule of the law protects individual citizens.

3. Individual liberty

An understanding that bodies such as the police and the army can be held account by people, through the democratic organs of Government.

4. Mutual respect

An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law, and an acceptance that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour.

5. Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

An understanding of the problems of identifying and combating discrimination.
