At West Green, we are fortunate to admit our children from a broad cross section of society. Our children have a wide range of culture, languages and life experiences. We aim to enhance our children’s life experiences and provide them with rich learning opportunities that they will not only learn from, but also remember. To best support our intake of pupils we put a large emphasis on vocabulary and discussion during our lessons and recording. Our intent is to immerse our children in their learning in order to develop their vocabulary and inspire rich discussions and active learning opportunities. We want our children to be reflective, lifelong learners. We mean to offer a wide range of experiences to extend their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. We mean to provide an enriched primary school experience they will fondly remember.
Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum. We strongly believe in providing a broad and balanced education for our pupils. To support our wider curriculum teaching we currently employ a specialist Mandarin teacher, a Music teacher, an Art teacher and sports coaches. Our teachers plan opportunities for children to experience trips or visitors related to their learning on a half termly basis; allowing our children the opportunity to explore the city they live in. When possible we make cross curricular links in our learning to deepen understanding. We also offer a wide variety of after school clubs to further enrich our students. Skills, attitudes and values are developed to prepare the children for the next stage of learning (key stage 1 and 2 ready and secondary ready), and enable them to be successful in the community.
