Curriculum and Policies
“The touchstone of an excellent curriculum is that it instils in children a love of learning for its own sake.”
- Sir Jim Rose
At West Park Academy, the aim of our curriculum is to enable all young people to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. These form the basis of our vision and therefore the starting points of our curriculum design. Our curriculum is based on the general requirements of the National Curriculum but is delivered through a thematic approach.
Thematic units of work (each lasting on average six weeks) span across the whole primary phase. Through its cross-curricular approach, each unit separates yet integrates many primary subjects including history, science, geography, PE and the arts while enabling links to English and Maths.
