Our curriculum aim is to create independent, higher order thinkers with high aspirations, through a curriculum that focuses on the local environment and widens our children’s global understanding.

From the moment our Reception children join Worth Primary School they are welcomed into our warm, caring community.The Early Years Curriculum allows them to develop the characteristics of effective learning as well as work towards the Early Learning Goals. Our children have the unique privilege of a small Reception class with a dedicated Early Years Teacher determined to give each and every pupil a personalised start to their learning journey.
Our older pupils play a vital part in developing a nurturing environment, workiing together with our younger pupils in all aspects of school life ensuring everyone recognises their part in the whole school community.
We believe Literacy is a fundamental life skill and at Worth Primary we develop the children’s abilities to listen, speak, read and write for a range of purposes, using language to learn and communicate ideas, views and feelings. Children have opportunities to express themselves creatively and imaginatively, as they become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as non-fiction and media texts. Our pupils develop an understanding of how language works by looking at its patterns, structures and origins. They use their knowledge, skills and understanding in speaking and writing across a range of situations.
Reading is a key area of focus in school. In Early Years and our KS1 classroom the children are taught phonics daily using Read Write Inc sound cards in order to develop their skills to decode words. We encourage our pupils to read a wide variety of literature and have decided not to adopt a specific reading scheme.
Our ‘Reading Rangers’ ensure children are reading regularly and widely across a wide range of texts. Reading Ranger Awards are celebrated with the whole school to emphasise the importance of reading each and every day.
Our aim in Maths is to provide all children with full access to the 2014 National Curriculum enabling our pupils to achieve confidence and competence (mastery) in mathematics. The majority of pupils progress through the content at the same pace and differentiation is achieved through support, intervention and deeper thinking tasks.
At Worth Primary School we believe that all pupils deserve a fully rounded curriculum to become confident, independent lifelong learners. Science has a crucial role in this and is considered a vital part of each pupil’s experience in school. All pupils have the opportunity to participate in activities across the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics during their time in school in line with the 2014 National Curriculum.
