Teaching and Learning: A statement of our curriculum
At Uplands Junior School we aim to provide the children with a curriculum which is broad, well balanced and above all stimulates the children to learn. We promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and seek to prepare them for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Through a positive and caring environment we provide the opportunity for every child to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum.
We deliver the programmes of study that meet the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. The National Curriculum is just one element in the education of children. It provides an outline of the core knowledge and skills around which our staff can plan and develop lessons.
The compulsory subjects under the new National Curriculum are as follows:
English, Mathematics, Science, Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, Languages, Geography, History, Music and Physical education. The teaching of Religious Education is statutory in all schools and here at Uplands we follow the Wolverhampton Agreed Syllabus.
English and Maths teaching are a fundamental part of each day here at Uplands. Children are organised into "sets" for each of these subjects in order to better accomodate the varying needs of children. Teachers seek to make as many cross curricular links as possible so that skills taught in these subjects can be applied in a range of contexts.
