Whole School Curriculum Intent

At Wicklea, we believe that our curriculum is one that is broad and balanced and is ambitious for all. It is exciting, relevant and meaningful and responds to the needs of the children, enabling them to shine academically and flourish socially, emotionally, morally and culturally.

We believe that our curriculum should be seen in its widest sense – as the entire planned learning experience, including formal learning opportunities as well as events, routines and enrichment activities that take place outside the classroom.

In addition, permeating our curriculum are our core values ~ Respect, Ready, Resilient ~ together with the British Values of Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect, Democracy and the Rule of Law.

Our curriculum at Wicklea is designed to allow each one of our children to: 

  •   Achieve the best possible academic standards, demonstrating growth, whatever their ability
  •   Be confident, creative and resilient, displaying a thirst for learning
  •   Be kind and honest, showing empathy and compassion whilst valuing diversity and equality
  •   Develop skills and personal qualities for lifelong learning, preparing children for the challenge of the secondary school curriculum and beyond, so they can make an active contribution to society
  •   Have aspirations for the future and know that these can be reached through hard work and commitment
  •   Be culturally knowledgeable about our community, country and world
  •   Become mentally and emotionally happy and resilient citizens, ready for the challenges of the 21st Century
