Our Vision of our Ambitious Curriculum at St Wilfrid's CE

Our curriculum is rooted first and foremost in our Christian values and heavily informed by theories from basic cognitive science, contemporary research and proven good practice.

Our curriculum at St Wilfrid's CE has been built around the National Curriculum and our Christian vision of Belonging, Believing, Becoming. This vision is rooted in the Parable of the Mustard Seed which shows us how great things grow from small beginnings (Mark 4: 30-32). We are passionate about combining high standards with a broad, creative and fulfilling curriculum so everyone has the opportunity to grow and discover their own unique talents.

In addition, our children are taught about the social, moral, spiritual and cultural aspects of life. Our curriculum is also enhanced by visits to the surrounding area and beyond to give pupils first-hand experiences, which will develop their knowledge and skills further. Our curriculum also addresses any social disadvantage, ensuring it meets the needs of all of our children. The curriculum includes learning about healthy eating, oral hygiene, the importance of exercise, staying safe, and mental well-being.

Each National Curriculum subject is planned out for each year group, identifying skills and knowledge to be taught to meet end of Key Stage expectations. These plans are available below.
