The Walton Curriculum


At Walton we base our curriculum planning and delivery on the National Curriculum. We choose to use Curriculum Maestro to support our delivery of the National Curriculum. This is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. It is based on a child-centred pedagogy called The Four Cornerstones (engage - develop - innovate - express) and is delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) which provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of children’s learning.


We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides many learning challenges throughout the academic year that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively.


For more info on the National Curriculum please see the following link;


Some children will be working towards these expectations, some at these expectations and some at greater depth. Your child's class teacher will keep you informed of your child's stage of learning and progress at the twice yearly parents' information evenings. These are held in October and March each year. An end of year report is sent home in July.


If you require more specific information about how to help your child more at home, please do not hesitate to make an appointment with the class teacher.

Don't forget to check the class pages and our twitter page for further information too.
