Curriculum Guidance


Atwood strives to engage pupils in a range of rich learning opportunities that enable all children to excel.

Our staff collaboratively plan and deliver lessons that give children exciting and memorable experiences, both in the classroom and outside and in our extensive grounds, as well as within the wider community. This gives a wealth of practical opportunities that develop explorative, teamwork and problem-solving skills.

Teaching is matched to the learning needs of individuals or groups of children. Activities are designed to promote a rich dialogue between teachers and pupils, between children and their peers, and within the wider school community. Staff guide children on exciting learning journeys that culminate in secure understanding demonstrated in pieces of writing, artwork, projects, drama or music.

Atwood works in close collaboration with a range of other local primary schools to share good practice. Our innovative Enrichment Programme allows pupils to engage with each other whilst pursuing shared interests such as debating, computing, music and drama, creative writing and cookery.
