Our Curriculum

Our aim is for all pupils to be prepared for the next stage of their education by having the confidence and aptitude to make their own valuable contribution to their community.  We want to prepare our pupils to be ready to meet new challenges with resilience and strong mental well-being, and to develop student independence by ensuring that their ‘love of learning’ continues throughout their time at Withington Primary School. We have a core curriculum that engages and suits the needs of all our pupils and our wider curriculum creates a culture of participation, opportunity and ambition.

As a school we recognise that there is no ‘right way’ for a child to learn and each child’s learning experience needs to be catered to meet their individual needs.

As well as creating a holistic learning experience where we can effectively meet the needs of our learners, we believe that our curriculum gives children the best opportunities to succeed and fulfil their potential. We feel it helps to prepare children for the challenges they are currently facing but also for the future both educational and as they move into their adult life.

We have enhanced our curriculum through a Curriculum publication called Cornerstones 22.  This programme ensures continuity and knowledge based learning across the foundation subjects.
