Our Intention at Wadhurst CE Primary School is To deliver an inclusive, engaging and memorable curriculum, which bridges differences, opens minds and fosters critical thinking in all our learners.

Teaching and Learning at Wadhurst follows the learning objectives set out in the National Curriculum for pupils in Year 1 - 6 and the framework for Early Years Foundation Stage pupils.  At Wadhurst we use Letters and Sounds to teach phonics in Key Stage 1.  

Throughout the school English is taught through Talk for Writing and Maths is taught through Powermaths.  

Below you will find links to the National Curriculum as well as the curriculum newsletters for each year group and subject overviews. The curriculum maps are currently under construction as part of whole school developments but we hope to share them with you shortly. 

The National Curriculum

Curriculum Enrichment

At Wadhurst we believe in offering a curriculum to all pupils that is ambitious and one that is designed to provide the children with the skills and knowledge in all subjects of the National Curriculum.  

We offer a variety of sports whilst the children move through the school such as swimming, hockey, Netball and gymnastics as well as the opportunity to compete against other schools in the local area throughout the year.  Our teachers are provided with excellent CPD opportunities through partnerships with Uplands Community College to ensure pupils make good progress and build on the skills they have previously learnt.

Children are offered great musical enrichment throughout their time at Wadhurst with lots of opportunities to learn a musical instrument. In Key Stage 2 the children have the opportunity to take part in school productions and  Key Stage 1 do the Christmas Nativity.  In addition to this our popular choir have taken part in various competitions and each year take part in Young Voices at the O2. 

French is taught across the whole school and is extremely popular with all pupils.  As part of our collective worships children are also encouraged to use Makaton and British Sign Language. 

In Year 6 pupils go on a school residential for a week, which both the children and adults alike always love!

Bristish Values and SMSC

Children as leaders

At Wadhurst CEP School we encourage children to take on leadership roles. The School Council From Year 2 onwards children are able to stand for and be elected onto the School Council. This ensures that all pupils are involved in the school’s drive to improve each year.  All children in Year 6 are also given a leadership role so that they are all able to contribute to the running of the school. The roles are as follows – • House Captains • Sport Captains • Prefects • Newspaper Editor • Fundraisers • Digital leaders • Play Leaders • Eco Warriors
