Curriculum @ Wilsthorpe
Students are taught in subjects; subjects are organised into Curriculum Areas and each area is managed by a Curriculum Area Leader (CAL).
The curriculum allows for students to accept and engage with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. It allows students to develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
To find out more about the curriculum, please contact Mr Rose, Deputy Headteacher.
British Values Statement
Promoting British values
Wilsthorpe School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.
We are dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.
The Government emphasises that schools are required to ensure that key ‘British Values’ are taught in all UK schools. The government set out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy.
The five British Values are:
The rule of law
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
Wilsthorpe School uses strategies within the National Curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for students. The full British Values Statement below gives examples that show some of the many ways Wilsthorpe School seeks to embed British values.
