We understand the importance of providing an inclusive learning environment for all pupils including those with SEND. Additional information on this can be found in our Special Education Needs Information Report
Data will follow at the end of this year.
At Winscombe we promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils. A vital part of our work is to help our pupils develop a critical appreciation of and respect for their own and others' beliefs, culture and identity. The children enjoy sharing in regular collective worship with visitors from our local community churches.
Art and Design is approached in a cross-curricular way based around the themes and topics in each year group. The children have opportunities to experience and develop a range of skills. These include drawing, painting, 3D work, collage, printing and textiles.
At Winscombe we want our pupils to be digital leaders who are safe and responsible, digital communicators who are digitally literate, digital creators who are logical and creative and digital investigators who can develop their ideas. To achieve this we follow the Wessex Computing Planning.
The cross-curricular nature of Design and Technology allows the children to apply knowledge and skills from a number of other subjects in designing and making artefacts and food products with a emphasis on healthy living. They learn independently and in groups to plan, design, make and evaluate their work.
History plays a key part throughout the year through our topic based learning. The children are given the opportunity to develop their skills in questioning and enquiry. They become 'historical detectives' and explore the past in an exciting way. They are given first hand experiences through role play, class visits and workshops. We regularly have visits from experts who bring their learning to life.
Sport is an integral part of the children's curriculum at Winscombe. It is important that the children learn the benefits of becoming team players whilst also challenging themselves to improve their own performance whatever the start point. The children experience a range of physical activities, including invasion, net/wall, and striking/fielding games, gymnastics, dance, athletics and outdoor/adventurous activities. They are also given regular opportunities to participate in cluster tournaments as well as many extra curricular clubs and activities.
