Our Curriculum at Walton
At Walton, we believe passionately in providing all of our pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum which is ambitious, engaging and prepares our pupils for future success. At the heart of our curriculum is the National Curriculum:
We supplement this with a range of carefully-selected schemes and resources to ensure that learning is progressive within and between year groups. Using our thorough understanding of the content to be delivered and our understanding of our pupils as individuals, we are able to plan to meet the needs of all learners.
We see the parent community as partners with us on the learning journey of their children and so work hard to keep them up-to-date with what the children are learning and the progress they are making. This will be, at least, through the twice yearly parents' information evenings, held in October and February each year. An end of year report is sent home in July and parents are invited to discuss the written report if they so wish. Class pages on our website and our Twitter page contain further information at the individual class level:
At Walton we are proud that we have an extensive, broad and balanced curriculum. Subject leaders work very hard to ensure that our curriculum provides a rich experience of knowledge and skills in their subject area.
We have put together a section on our website to share with you our 'Walton Approaches' for each subject area along with progression maps and other relevant information that will help you to understand the learning that takes place at our school.
