Our curriculum

At The Willows, we are passionate about providing all of our children with a creative and exciting curriculum which captures their interest and inspires them to learn as well as achieve highly.

All our interactive learning projects this year are taken from the Cornerstones Curriculum which aims to 

  • provide the children with memorable learning experiences
  • develop knowledge and skills through enquiry based learning
  • using and applying prior knowledge and skills through problem solving and risk taking activities
  • celebrate and reflect on their learning journey through presenting their ideas in various ways to their peers, wider school community and parents and carers.

Outdoor Learning Overview

Children at the Willows are provided with lots of opportunities to learn outdoors as well as indoors.  Our school quad is fully equipped to facilitate continuous provision so that the curriculum can be extended outside.  Our community plays a big part in sharing and developing the curriculum.  Our children's learning is enhanced through the experience they gain from the community and adults working closely with school.  Below are some photographs of adults who work with our children.  They are all employed by our local housing trust and have volunteered to work in school with out children.
