Our Curriculum Impact

Whitkirk Primary School (16)

The impact of our school’s curriculum can be seen through the outcomes of all groups of pupils and the work they produce. We expect that:

  • All children make good progress from their individual starting points academically, emotionally, creatively, socially and physically.
  • Children make connections within and across subjects to ensure knowledge is retained and continually built on.
  • Key concepts are secured and developed through revisiting so that children attain highly and are fully prepared for secondary school.
  • Key vocabulary is developed and used confidently by children in a range of contexts, both written and verbal.
  • Children take pride in all that they do, are motivated to do their best and have confidence in their own abilities.
  •  Children listen respectfully and with tolerance to the views of others.
  •  Children demonstrate emotional resilience and the ability to persevere when they meet challenge.
  • Children demonstrate inclusive attitudes and have a sense of their role in the wider society.

This is demonstrated through the use of a variety of monitoring and assessment methods to determine whether pupils have achieved this at specific points during their education at Whitkirk. The monitoring schedule includes quality of teaching and learning, book reviews and pupil voice discussions which are all used to assess the impact of the curriculum. This triangulation is used to assess whether pupils have been taught the key knowledge and if they have retained this in order to ascertain that learning has taken place.
