Curriculum

 

At West Ashton our aim is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that equips them for today and tomorrow. Our focus on curriculum development is always carefully designed to ensure coverage and progression. It provides pupils with memorable experiences, in addition to diverse and rich opportunities from which children can learn and develop a range of transferable skills.

There is a high focus on developing children’s moral, spiritual, social and cultural understanding.

Every child is recognised as a unique individual . we celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills , knowledge, concepts and values with a vision to prepare them for life beyond primary school. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in their lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.

 

Our curriculum design is sequential and progressive, building upon skills and knowledge taught and revisiting concepts frequently. Subjects, where possible, are woven into cross-curricular topics. Here the topics are relevant to New Close children and provide a context to their learning, making links to the communities within our school and the wider Warminster community. Where this is not possible subjects are taught discretely in blocks of learning. Within this we aim to provide our children with a rich bank of curricular and non-curricular experiences.
