Our Curriculum


 Curriculum Vision & Statement 2021/22


At Wyvil Primary School, we ensure that we meet the requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum, whilst retaining our commitment to create an innovative, inspiring learning community in which learners are engaged through a range of stimulating, relevant and inspiring educational experiences, relevant to our school community and context, while igniting a life long passion for learning.

Wyvil Primary School has 5 core values, which are embedded within our school community and curriculum and are essential to the way we foster a learning community within our school. They form the basis of the way pupils form relationships with each other and the adults in school; they act as a reference for how to respond to challenging situations and they provide the guidance that pupils need in order to develop effective habits of successful learners through our curriculum.

The Wyvil Core Values are:

  • Be respectful 
  • Be positive
  • Take responsibility
  • Try your best
  • Work together


The Wyvil School Reflection, read to pupils daily, provides examples of what these values mean in practice:

  • Help us to be respectful to everyone in our Wyvil Family, to be kind, honest and helpful to everyone we meet
  • Help us to be positive and to see the best in everyone, when things are challenging
  • Help us to be resilient and to persevere
  • Help us take responsibility for words and actions, to recognise and nurture all we are good at and learn from our mistakes
  • Help us to try our best in everything we do and remind us that our efforts reflect on our school, family and on us as individuals
  • Help us to work together as a team, to support each other and to recognise that together we can achieve great thing

At Wyvil Primary School, we also firmly believe our values underpin the fundamental British values, which are promoted in our SMSC and SRE, as well as throughout our wider curriculum:

the rule of law: respect and obey the law
mutual respect: respect the rights of others, including their right to their own opinions
democracy: treat others with fairness
look after yourself and your family
look after the area in which you live and the environment
individual liberty
tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Alongside our key school values, as a school we also have at the heart of our curriculum, the following overarching key themes, which shape teachers’ planning for the term while allowing them to plan opportunities to develop the full range of National Curriculum skills explicitly:
