Wellfield Junior School

At Wellfield Junior School we care, learn and succeed together


We believe that all children should have access to a rich, balanced and stimulating curriculum, which sparks their interests and allows it to flourish as they progress through their school life.


Our wider curriculum subjects explicitly teach substantive knowledge, as guided by the National Curriculum. Disciplinary knowledge is woven into each subject to ensure the development of transferrable skills. Our curriculum is inclusive and ambitious for all. Learning is made accessible to all pupils through scaffolded

tasks that are gradually removed when each child is ready.


Our curriculum is delivered with the help of the Wellfield Way, based on Rosenshine's principles of instruction, as pupils deliberately practice and revisit skills and knowledge - allowing them to know and remember more. With the use of Vertical Concepts, learning within wider curriculum subjects is built upon year on-year thus

allowing for coherence.


Cross-curricular links to core subjects are made when possible, including opportunities for writing and reading. Children are provided with enrichment opportunities (trips, residentials, and immersive experiences) in all curriculum areas. This is thoughtfully mapped out.


Objectives for the wider curriculum subjects are covered throughout the school year, allowing for the delivery of a balanced curriculum with the aim to have enthused learners who are prepared for the next stage in their learning journey.
