Weston St Mary CE Primary School - Coming together as one

Our Curriculum

The current National Curriculum, alongside our Academy Status offers us opportunities to develop children’s learning using the very best, innovative and exciting methods available to us. Our rationale for curriculum reform is based on the principle that children need to access relevant, interesting and meaningful learning which is suitable to their age range, reflects their personal interests, and incorporates their independent and creative ideas and personal enquiries.Our four year rolling programme of Whole School Themes enables children at different levels to access different skills and subject content which is focused around the whole school theme.

Our termly Theme Days allow children of different ages to work together on a range of fun activities, rotating around on a carousel basis.We introduce children to a different artist each term over a period of eight-years. Children explore, reflect and begin to understand a huge range of artists and their accomplishments.Introduced in November 2015, our weekly Woodland Education sessions have become a huge success. This element of our curriculum encourages better health and well-being, broadens children’s horizons, stimulates interest, curiosity and passion for “doing” and enables them to develop new skills and build relationships.
