Curriculum Overview

Every moment matters

Staff make every effort to enrich the educational experiences of our children. 

Our curriculum is planned to be not only educational, but also enjoyable for both pupils and staff. The school day is carefully planned to ensure children gain maximum benefit through an exciting curriculum and other extracurricular activities. Our staff have a wealth of experience and knowledge and lessons are alive with challenge and involvement for all. 

Children demonstrate an interest and a keen approach to learning and this is encouraged through the carefully planned curriculum for all. Through the Pupil Leadership Team, pupils have a voice that is heard.

The foundation stones to a successful education lie in the acquisition of basic skills. Without these skills, children will not make the educational progress that is expected of them. At Ashurst Wood Primary School, we place great emphasis on learning basic skills.

Children will be taught and expected to learn number bonds and times tables, as well as calculation methods for the four rules of number. In addition, children will be taught phonics, through the use of the Song of Sounds programme, basic spelling rules and reading skills. Our aim is that when pupils leave Year Six, they will be highly numerate and literate, with a real joy for learning.

Our vision is for everyone to have a love of life, a love of learning and a love of people.
