Intent, Implementation and Impact



There is a wealth of information regarding our whole school curriculum and below our key stage curriculum overviews and topic maps give you a deeper insight into how we work creatively to link the core and foundation subjects to enhance, deepen and excite learning. We also work hard to ensure clear progression and coverage of the teaching and learning of objectives across all core and foundation subjects and these can be seen through our subject curriculum overviews. We follow the Lancashire maths scheme and conduct Assertive Mentoring in maths to ensure we regularly revisit and recap on key skills. We utilise the Lancashire English units to aid our planning and teaching, promote the love of reading and writing and creatively connect our themes of learning which deepens our children's knowledge and understanding. In Early Years we follow a one year cycle and the curriculum themes are displayed below. As we have mixed age classes in Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2 our curriculum themes follow a two yearly cycle as shown below. Our motto and school values are an essential part of our curriculum and we ensure children take on key roles within the school, become involved in the community, celebrate local and national traditions, develop their creativity and learn new skills taking an active part in events throughout the year. If you wish to find out more about our curriculum and the amazing learning and teaching at Waterfoot Primary please read below and take a look at our policies on our school website or contact the school for further details.


Children at Waterfoot develop the knowledge, skills and mindset which allow them to become confident, lifelong learners. They are proud to be part of Waterfoot Primary and develop into individuals which reflect our school motto and values. The rich and comprehensive curriculum allows the children to develop a deep understanding of the world around them. To see examples of the children's amazing work and efforts take a look at the impact of the 'curriculum in action' by looking on our class pages, outdoor learning area or the latest news page on our school website.
