Overview of our Curriculum
Sheringham Woodfields offers a broad and balanced curriculum to all its pupils irrespective of needs or abilities. This encompasses all areas of the National Curriculum and Early Years and Foundation Stage where appropriate. Â From 16 the curriculum is more focussed on preparing pupils for the next steps of their lives.
The curriculum promotes fundamental British values in a wide range of ways.
The PSHE curriculum actively promotes:
- Â the principles of democracy and fairness
- equality of rights
- the difference between right and wrong
- the rule of law
- the consequences of breaking laws
- individual liberty and responsibilities
In addition there are many other opportunities to promote these values such as school council, pupils developing class rules etc.
The RE curriculum follows the Norfolk agreed syllabus which largely reflects Christian traditions in Britain.
In addition our RE themed days enable pupils to:
- Â experience and understand different religions and cultures.
- to recognise the similarities and differences between other cultures and our own.
- to tolerate the beliefs and cultures of others.
The traditional school curriculum is enhanced by the many life skills we teach that are so important for our pupilsâ€™ development and their families. This requires a very individual approach and the school to have a long term view of where our pupils will be moving onto so that they are fully prepared for the next steps of their lives.
Each half term parents are provided with information about what their child will be learning and how they can support learning at home.
