School Curriculum

Our Curriculum Intent Statement


Our vision is to create a primary school where all pupils are excited by learning experiences and a learning environment in which they can thrive. Our curriculum is designed to: 

  • recognise and build upon children's prior learning
  • provide first-hand experiences that challenge and promote curiosity 
  • enable a love of learning
  • build resilience, confidence and life skills.


We seek to maximise opportunities to expand their language and inspire a thirst for knowledge across different subjects whilst ensuring meaningful connections. It is constantly evolving to help children prepare for life in modern Britain with topics considered on a local, national and global scale.


Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum. We aim to work in collaboration with the local community to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and to achieve; and to promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and happiness, striving to support all pupils to become responsible, loving citizens.


At Wheatley, every child is recognised as a unique individual. All learning is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We use the teaching of growth mindset to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success. 

Our aim is for all pupils to leave us as confident, independent, co-operative learners ready for the next phase in their educational journey. 


Subject Intent and Principles Documents

Referring closely to our overarching intent statement, leaders have produced subject-specific intent and principles documents for each curriculum area. 

These documents explain our intent for each area of the curriculum and also outline the principles that underpin the high standards of teaching and learning that we see in delivery of that subject across the school.

We are currently working towards becoming a singing school to achieve the Sing Up status.

Our EYFS classes are also working hard on their oral hygiene in order to achieve the Healthy Smiles accreditation later this year.
