Curriculum Design at St. Wilfrid’s Church of England Primary Academy

‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,’ Philippians 4:13


At St. Wilfrid’s Church of England Primary Academy, we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of the children in our Church Community. We aim to motivate and inspire children through a curriculum that engages and challenges all learners. Our curriculum is designed to deepen knowledge and develop skills, ensuring effective progression within each subject discipline and across all year groups. Our Christian Values and Distinctiveness, alongside our School Mission Statement of ‘Achieve, Believe and Care’, are at the heart of our curriculum and all that we do at St. Wilfrid’s.


At St. Wilfrid’s Church of England Primary Academy, we implement an inclusive curriculum that meets the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. Our curriculum is well-planned and provides rich, cross-curricular opportunities, where knowledge and skills are accurately assessed against ‘Age-Related Descriptors’.

Each term, all year groups have a ‘focus theme’, which link all aspects of English to the History, Geography or Science curriculum, using high quality focus reading texts. Teachers plan an inspiring stimulus, an exciting home learning project and a celebratory showcase event, to hook and engage children and parents. This makes learning purposeful and relevant, extending children’s breadth of language and vocabulary. Our curriculum is continually shaped and developed to meet children’s interests and needs, and is supported by practices based on credible research.

Our curriculum is delivered through highly effective ‘quality first teaching’, including the use of specialist teachers. Enrichment opportunities, including outdoor learning, inspirational visitors and exciting educational visits, provide our children with rich experiences and enhance teaching, learning and knowledge. Our curriculum promotes children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, ensuring that they are reflective and responsible citizens. Fundamental British Values are actively promoted in order to prepare the children for life in Modern Britain.


Our well-planned curriculum ensures that children are knowledgeable and skilled, achieve well and make excellent progress at each stage of their education. Through the breadth and depth that our knowledge-rich curriculum offers, children have strong character traits and are rounded and grounded, confident and resilient, and well-equipped for the future. Our curriculum enables children to become articulate and enthusiastic learners, with high aspirations and ambition.
