We believe that all children have a right to a broad, balanced and relevant education. As a staff team, we have identified four key drivers (fundamental core values) that underpin the curriculum we provide and have a particular relevance to the children in our school. These Curriculum drivers are: Citizenship, Life experiences and Understanding, Independence and Emotional Awareness. Aspects of these drivers are interweaved into all topics in the school.
Due to children joining Walworth at varying times of the year and varying times within their school careers, the curriculum is flexible to be able meet different children’s needs. This takes into account the variety of work the children have completed in their previous school, allowing staff to ‘fill gaps’ in any learning that may have been missed.
Children are taught Mathematics and Literacy in the mornings with extra intervention run throughout the day. Children follow the Rapid Reading scheme before becoming a ‘free reader’ where they are encouraged to read a broad selection of novels.
In the afternoon, Foundation subjects (History, Geography, Computing, Art, D.T., Religious Education, Science and P.H.S.E.) are taught using a Topic approach to reflect a creative curriculum. Where links cannot be made, subjects are taught discretely. A variety of teaching methods are used, providing hands on opportunities as well as more traditional learning. Learning is taken, where possible, outside the classroom and into the real world through a variety of educational visits throughout the year.
Teaching British Values
It is Walworth`s responsibility to “promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs” (The prevent strategy 2011); Find out how we promote British Values at our school.
Curriculum Long Term Plans
As a staff we are currently reviewing our Long Term Plans to better reflect the needs of our children going forward post COVID-19. Once they are finalised they will be uploaded.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Walworth School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report. If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
