Our Curriculum

We aim to provide a curriculum, which inspires and challenges all learners, promotes a love of learning and enables the development of life skills in preparation for experiences beyond primary school.

At the heart of our curriculum is the requirement that pupils have to apply their learning in a number of contexts, which makes learning active and authentic. The curriculum focus, is to develop pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they leave Wilton Primary with skills to take them onto secondary education and beyond with a view to their working life.

 We aim to meet children’s needs and respond to interests and experiences through a curriculum that: 

  • Ensures that every child experiences rich, memorable learning experiences through high quality project based learning
  • Promotes a high level of skill in communication, literacy and numeracy and a depth of curriculum that allows for mastery learning
  • Promotes lifelong learning skills and a growth mindset
  • Cultivates aspiration through motivation and self-belief
  • Nurtures curiosity and creativity which feed the imagination
  • Recognises the importance of emotional and physical well being
  • Grows an understanding of ourselves, each other and the world
