Nyewood’s curriculum is developed specifically for each year group and adapted by expert teachers to deliver an exciting, relevant curriculum meeting the needs of our children. Discreet subject teaching within project themes ensures a tightly structured progression of skills and learning dispositions, for example reflection time, thereby readying children for transition to secondary school and beyond.
Each year group engages in all subjects across the year. To enrich school based learning, trips and visitors are carefully planned to bring learning to life and provide the all-important real-life learning experiences.
Our curriculum demonstrates core coverage in each curricular area. Fundamental to this is the real life learning opportunities that children engage in at home – visits to the beach with friends, taking part in clubs and spending quality time with family. Engaging in reinforcement of core skills such as regular reading to children and hearing them read along with supporting the term by term development of spelling patterns and phonic awareness are ways in which family members can work with the staff to reinforce the value of all learning experiences both academic and social. It is through working together alongside the strong Christian ethos that Nyewood's curriculum is further strengthened and enriched.
As a school, we intend to incorporate our school values of Respect, Resilience, Honesty, Collaboration and Independence into every unit of work.
