Curriculum Intent Statement
At Worsley Mesnes Community Primary School, we want our children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become enquiring, creative, critical thinkers.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values.
We use Growth Mindset to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.
Our Worsley Mesnes Way - a set of values that underpins school life – is understood by all and is the basis of the school ethos, values, rewards, consequences and the way we live together. We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.
Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, learning new skills to enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year.
Children leave the school with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
At Worsley Mesnes Community Primary School we build our curriculum around identified needs of our children. The development of basic oracy skills and the organised and consistent enrichment of language is key.
Learning is developing constantly and the use of Magenta Principles to advance strategies for talking, thinking and doing allows all children opportunity to demonstrate their potential.
We have designed our half termly curriculum enrichment weeks to provide a breadth of experience within a subject area, drawing on outside speakers, involvement of parents and developing a sense of curiosity. The development of careers advice within the curriculum enrichment weeks enables visitors (including parents) to meet with the children and expose them to life outside school, providing them with ideas for their future. We are passionate that all children realise that it is a big and wonderful world out there that they can play an active and positive part in.
