Our Learning

West Hill’s curriculum provides a wide range of learning opportunities to encourage our pupils to develop key skills which can be used across different subjects. At all stages they learn, practice, combine, develop and refine these in their work across the curriculum. Opportunities for learning and teaching all these skills across the stages are identified in detailed planning. Homework is a valuable part of their learning.

At West Hill we focus on developing the children’s self-evaluation skills from Nursery through to Year 6. We encourage children always to reflect on their learning. What do they think about what they have just learnt? What support do they feel they need? How could they have done it better?

We ensure learners are challenged and that they experience a rich, exciting and relevant curriculum. Social inclusion is central and implicit in all areas of the curriculum.

We want pupils to enjoy and be interested in all their learning, which will extend and nurture their innate curiosity about the world in which they live. Our role, in partnership with parents, is to build the foundations for a successful education, to enable each child to discover the joy of learning, to help them to fulfil every aspect of their potential and to encourage their growth into effective citizens, ready to play their part in the world and their community.

If you would like to find out more about the way different subjects are approached and taught, please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher or come and visit us.
