Skills for Life
A broad and balanced curriculum is embedded into each Trust school to ensure that a cross-curricular approach to learning is adopted. This approach is inclusive to ensure that academic excellence and high aspirations are an expectation of all students. The application of skills ensures that a high quality provision can be taught. Additionally, extra-curricular opportunities are provided to both enhance and extend the expectations of the national curriculum. These opportunities, alongside those provided in the curriculum, are individualised for each school in order for them to embrace local influences.
At Warren Wood, the children explore the local area and incorporate their findings into their learning. We embrace our woodland areas and use forest skills sessions as a way to explore the world outside. There are also visits to Rochester Castle, Upnor Castle and the Guildhall museum to embed local history into the curriculum.
Physical development is a particular focus in all aspects of school life, from providing extra-curricular activities, to acting as a behaviour tool in order to develop the children’s spiritual, social, and emotional well-being. Moreover, indoor and outdoor learning areas are a pivotal part of learning and the approach undertaken in all schools across the Trust. The children have a detailed knowledge and understanding of the importance of safety, particularly online, as well as the importance of equality and understanding the needs of others.
By providing the children with the aforementioned skills and knowledge, alongside an enthusiastic and positive approach to teaching and learning, the children are being provided with essential skills for life which will prepare them for life in modern Britain.
