Inspiring and challenging, engaging and exciting, these are our priorities when planning and delivering lessons to the pupils at Westfield Primary Community School.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the objectives set out in the National Curriculum. We adapt and enhance this with well-planned opportunities that meet the needs of our pupils and capture their interest. We know children learn best when they are excited and when learning is placed in a meaningful context. Where links exist between subjects and areas of learning, our lessons are taught using a cross-curricular approach. The practice and application of basic skills learned in the core curriculum is a driver for the entire curriculum. We place a strong emphasis on the development of the basic skills necessary to be confident independent learners and successful adults.
At Westfield Primary Community School, we teach children virtues of good character. We support them in developing a strong sense of moral purpose and a respect and understanding of people who have different characteristics to themselves. A well planned curriculum, delivered by committed staff in an ethos of support and encouragement, enables our pupils to be well rounded, empathetic young people who have an enjoyment and commitment to learning and respect for all around them.
