The Wessex Curriculum
At Wessex we are proud to offer every child access to an enriched curriculum, using every opportunity to bring learning to life within a thematic approach to learning.
Our curriculum is driven by a creative thematic approach which is inspiring, innovative and inclusive ensuring children are ready for the life in the 21st century academically, emotionally and socially.
We encourage children to be inquisitive – asking and answering questions at every opportunity – whilst ensuring a firm foundation in the basic skills they will need both now and in the future.
We teach our children about the process of learning, and frequently remind them of what it takes to be a good learner. The links below provide an overview of what the children learn throughout the year and are linked to the National Curriculum.
We share this information with families every term to ensure that parents understand what their children are learning and have a good range of suggestions about how this learning can be supported at home. It is a curriculum rooted within the principles of excellence and enjoyment, so please take a look at the Year group links at the side … Please see our curriculum letter to parents and why not visit for yourself to see the fantastic work we are doing!

Our curriculum plan
Our exciting Wessex Curriculum has been designed to work in partnership with the National Curriculum.
We have a four year rolling program of study with an overarching theme that threads together across the whole school. We do not teach the same old "boxed" curriculum every year. The cycle has been planned to ensure National Curriculum coverage for a year group and links to show skills progression across the school.
Reading is at the heart of the new curriculum with an inspiring text chosen to lead the learning and link the curriculum together.
