We aim to provide an excellent education for our children, which develops the highest possible standards. Our children follow a curriculum designed to meet the needs of our Academy context and that delivers the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum. Everything your child does in our academy is part of this curriculum. The total learning experience is designed to maximise achievement within the National Curriculum and develop skills, attitudes and attainment in the widest sense.
Our Curriculum Policy outlines the key principles and aims that underpin learning at Westwood Academy.
The National Curriculum
The National Curriculum requires that children will be taught the following subjects:
Maths, English, Science, Computing and R.E
History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education, P.S.H.E. (Personal, Social and Health Education), MFL (modern foreign languages)
We teach each of the National Curriculum subjects through a topic or theme. The themes reflect the children's interests and aim to inspire the children to learn.
Children have access to a range of technology such as laptops, ipads used in classrooms or by working in the Computer Suite. Our children are taught computing skills in a structured and progressive way.
