‘Learning Today for the World of Tomorrow’

Our Curriculum is underpinned by ‘Safeguarding Children and Child Protection’, the sentiments of ‘Every Child Matters’, the school’s ‘Healthy school’, ‘Investors in People Gold’, ‘Eco-School’, ‘Forest School’ and ‘Artsmark Gold’ ethos’, ‘Excellence and Enjoyment’ and the School’s Mission Statement and Aims.

West Hill Primary School is a Co-operative Trust school having formed The SMILE Learning Trust in November 2013.

(Support, Motivate, Inspire, Learn Excel)

Our Curriculum fully supports our school ethos which is based on ‘Care’, ‘tolerance’, ‘trust’ and ‘respect’ and on our SMILE Learning Trust Co-operative Values of: self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, solidarity. As Co-operative members, we believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others and we use every opportunity in our teaching to promote our ethos and values.

West Hill Primary School provides a balanced and broadly based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school, and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. The curriculum aims to develop children into independent life-long learners, who are fully in charge of their own learning and who possess many key life skills to assist them throughout their lives.

The school’s Curriculum Policies and Schemes of Work outline the manner in which Religious Education and the National Curriculum subjects are taught to all the children according to their age and capabilities. Curriculum Plans in each subject are available for parents to see on the school website or are available at the school upon request.
