Curriculum Vision

At Westfield Infant school we have developed a knowledge-rich curriculum based upon the extensive research around effective teaching and learning. We teach specific subject areas to enable our children to grasp a deep knowledge of different subject content, an understanding of how different subjects contribute to our world and to make connections between subjects in their learning.


Our curriculum is inclusive and aspirational, covering all aspects of the National Curriculum and interwoven with the core values of our school and the British values that enable children to grow into well-rounded, resilient and respectful citizens.


Our aim is to equip children with rich subject knowledge which is built upon term by term, year on year, supporting children to remember what they have learnt and apply their knowledge in different situations.


Westfield’s curriculum is underpinned by an understanding of how children learn. Rosenshine’s principles alongside relevant and related research have been used to design and deliver our curriculum to enable academic success and personal growth for all of our children.
