 Early Years Intention Statement

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

Maths Subject Intention Statement

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Computing Intention Statement

A high-quality computing curriculum will encourage and inspire pupils to develop a love of computing and their talent as technicians, and increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Teaching should allow pupils to develop a critical engagement with computing, giving them opportunities to create and explore a range of systems and content within the information technology sector. Computer Science allows pupils the opportunity to explore the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.

RE Intention Statement

At Warmington School, pupils and their families can expect a high quality RE curriculum that is rich and varied, enabling learners to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of a range of faiths and worldviews. hrough the ‘Understanding Christianity’ resource, the use of an enquiry approach engages with significant theological concepts and the pupil’s own understanding of the world as part of their wider religious literacy. Using the Diocese of Peterborough RE syllabus, we learn about other religions and worldviews, fostering respect for them. Links with support for pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development are intrinsic to our RE curriculum and have a significant impact on learners. We provide a wide range of opportunities for pupils to understand and to make links between the beliefs, practices and value systems of the range of faiths and worldviews studied.

History

History Intention Statement

A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

Geography

Geography Intention Statement

A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

 PE Education Curriculum statement

Warmington School believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health.

A balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aims to cater for an individual pupil’s needs and abilities. The scheme of work is based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavor to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils. Get Set 4 PE is used to provide this curriculum for our pupils. They have resources to support our active families too. This can be found at: https://pe.getset4education.co.uk/ResourceBank/ResourceCategory/1002?publicaccesstoken=fe0G5E72Q%2bmX9HnJIAi6hEuf%2fqMQjqNDeXo6bPE5Cek%3d 

The scheme aims to promote an understanding of the many benefits of exercise, through a balanced range of relevant activities. Physical Education is considered as a vehicle to facilitate access to cross- curricular themes, skills and dimensions, rather than a subject concerned exclusively with the acquisition of motor skills and techniques.

The curriculum is enriched with internal and external competitions as well as workshops to provide new opportunities to the pupils. You can see this in action on our Sport blog: https://warmingtonsport.wordpress.com/

Art

Art Intention Statement

To give pupils the widest range of opportunities to work on Expressive Arts, using a combination of standalone lessons and as part of Topic lessons to explore a range of styles, topics, artists and applications. Expressive Art days will also allow immersion for pupils to spend longer practising and developing their ideas and skills. The ultimate aim is for an enjoyable time for pupils to develop and express themselves in different ways, recognising that, for many, Expressive Arts is an escape from more ‘literacy’ based subjects, allowing pupils to develop and nurture a different but important set of skills which will foster a lifelong love of Arts and the benefits they bring.

Music

Music Intention Statement

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

Modern Foreign Languages

French Intention Statement

Purpose of study

Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
