At Wescott we firmly believe that it is our duty to offer a holistic approach to the education we deliver, and we do this by driving five key competencies across the school: CORE; CURRICULUM; CULTURE; CHARACTER and COMMUNITY.

We take pride in developing outstanding teaching and learning by holding the highest expectations for all our pupils and knowing the pupils well so that every child can access and experience success in both the CORE and foundation CURRICULUM.  Our aim is to create an inclusive environment where barriers to learning are overcome via strategies, targeted interventions or additional support giving full access to the curriculum for all.  Our pupils’ success will be recognised through increased independence and confidence in the classroom as well as being equipped for adulthood and the wider world. 

The curriculum is ambitious, progressive and equitable; however, it is not at the expense of a full curriculum and not solely focused on end of Key Stage results.

We foster independent learning and our carefully planned curriculum opens the doors on all sorts of opportunities, resulting in children who are highly-motivated, creative and enthusiastic in all that they do. Through real-life and connected learning in the classroom and outdoors, our children gain knowledge and become effective problem solvers.

Enrichment of the curriculum is important to us and throughout the year offer a variety of school trips to new and interesting locations. Visitors are also invited into school to share experiences and their expertise with the children. The enrichment of the curriculum provides an exciting environment for the children to develop an enjoyment for learning and thirst for knowledge. 


Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum

In our Foundation Stage (FS) we use the Early Years Curriculum and we follow the children's interests through a variety of topics. Some of these include stories, investigations, superheroes, animals, all about the world around us and more! We listen to what the children would like to learn about and we teach the skills they need through a range of activities and experiences. The children have time to lead their own learning within the FS environment (both indoors and outdoors) where they learn independently, as well as engaging in more structured whole class and small group activities throughout the day.

Our teaching is based on the Early Years Framework, and the updated framework will be implemented from September 2021.
