At Windmill Church of England Primary School we believe learning should be exciting - our aim is to provide a highly enjoyable, creative curriculum which not only incorporates the National Curriculum but the needs, thoughts and ideas of every learner in our school. Our creative curriculum ensures that all of our pupils are motivated, engaged and enthused about every learning experience; inspiring each child to become a lifelong learner.
At Windmill Church of England Primary School, our teaching and learning takes place within a topic based curriculum approach. This means that wherever possible we group our subjects around a topic. This topic-based structure has been effective in enthusing staff and pupils because of the many creative opportunities for links across subject areas. It also allows us to explore lots of books and writing opportunities in a context that we understand - helping us to make super progress with our writing. We cover the National Curriculum points of study in a way that makes learning interesting and engaging for all of our pupils. The design of the curriculum takes into account the needs of all pupils. It values their diversity and develops understanding of people from other faiths and cultures.
The curriculum we have developed is based on an annual cycle where each curriculum year is divided into distinct topics.
