Curriculum Overview

West Vale Academy bases its curriculum on the National Curriculum 2014 for Years One to Six and, for Reception, the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

By ‘curriculum’, we mean any aspect of the school’s work that develops children’s knowledge, skills and understanding. This includes but is not restricted to:

  • Lessons
  • Group and individual intervention sessions (academic as well as personal and social)
  • Assemblies
  • Enrichment events such as workshops, speakers, special theme days and educational visits
  • Performances
  • Homework
  • Extra-curricular activities before and after school and during lunchtime

In addition to covering the National Curriculum, we aim to mould our curriculum so that it prepares children for the next stage of their education and promotes British Values alongside our own school values and ethos.

If you would like any further information on our school curriculum please contact the school office or speak with your child’s class teacher.
