Our Curriculum

At Warren Wood Primary School we provide the children with a rich, broad and creative curriculum where they can be successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve. Teachers take a pride in ensuring that all our children are engaged, challenged and achieve their full potential.

Learning in English and Mathematics is well structured and carefully planned to be inclusive and to provide challenge for all, with core skills embedded across the whole curriculum offer. We take a thematic approach to the broader curriculum encompassing skills and knowledge through investigations, creative arts, DEAL (Drama Engagement Active Learning) and enquiry based learning.  We ensure that learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom, preparing children for 'the world outside the window'. Our creative curriculum is also enhanced by visits, visitors and special events throughout the year.

Our seven steps to being a happy and effective learner 

At Warren Wood, we believe that happy children who develop a love of learning at a young age are set up for success. We have a shared ethos in our school, developing these seven steps which we believe are fundamental to creating happy, successful learners. 

Our curriculum has evolved and developed in a variety of ways over the last few years.

As a staff, we have committed staff INSET training time to sharing and shaping our ethos to find the key aspects that we feel will prepare our pupils for the 21st Century world in which they are growing up in.

Collectively, we have decided that our core values for teachers and learners to feel are as follows:








Children’s interest is fuelled by their naturally inquisitive natures. They will take ideas from a ‘hook’ or opportunity presented to them and part of the fun of teaching is seeing where the children take their learning.

Resilience is a core value that we build in our pupils. We ensure that they are happy and committed to their learning, taking risks and knowing that making mistakes is part of learning and part of life. We firmly believe that pupils will develop a strong sense of independence through sharing collaborative experiences with their peers.

They will develop their understanding of the world around them, form their own informed opinions and develop a strong sense of identity, belonging and responsibility at different levels. They will become ambitious in the pursuit of high attainment and progress in order to fulfill their potential.

This will allow children to develop confidence in their own abilities, leading to higher self-esteem and self-worth.
