Quality of Education – Our Intent

At Wroughton Academies, we provide every pupil with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to fulfil their individual and academic potential, which enables our pupils to make a positive contribution to their local community, Britain and the wider world.

  • A progressive, integrated, globally-relevant core curriculum which provides a wealth of high-quality learning and cultural experiences which are directly matched to the needs of our pupils.
  • We provide a range of high-quality enrichment opportunities which enable children to develop their own aspirations to become successful and confident citizens in their lives beyond primary school.
  • Every child a reader – the teaching of reading is our highest curriculum priority. The ability to read and comprehend will enable children to achieve their academic potential and succeed at their next stage of education.
  • We develop children’s resilience and communication skills, through a positive cultural approach, ensuring that children take responsibility for their actions and can communicate effectively.
  • No child left behind – our teaching and learning methods are developed in response to the latest educational research and to ensure that every child receives individualised high quality support.
  • We recognise the diverse and unique social context of our local community and we work closely with our families to promote the physical health and mental well-being of all pupils.

Music

At Wroughton Academies, we provide all children with opportunities to be involved in music making through our International Primary Curriculum. We also use the Charanga music scheme to deliver exciting, interactive lessons and we are active members of the Norfolk Music Hub. Our school choir perform at local events including carol services at St Nicholas Minster and the Hippodrome circus in Great Yarmouth. This year, our Year 4 children will all be taught to play tuned instruments by a specialist music teacher.

Spanish

We have recently re-launched our Key Stage 2 Spanish curriculum through a whole school topic, when children learnt all about Spanish culture. We use the JMB Education scheme to teach Spanish vocabulary and phrases progressively, so that all children are able to participate in a simple Spanish conversation by the time they leave Year 6. https://www.jmbeducation.com/spanish/

Religious Education

We follow the Norfolk Agreed Religious Education Syllabus, which promotes an enquiry-based approach to learning. We work closely with St Andrews, our local parish church, where we attend Christingle and other celebration services. Our weekly ‘Open the Book’ bible-based assemblies ensure that children experience and understand Christian worship. Our curriculum ensures that children are also taught about the practices of all principal religions represented in Great Britain.
