School Curriculum

At Wylam First School we have worked hard to design a curriculum, based on the National Curriculum Statutory Requirements,  that is specific to our children and the community that we serve. Our high expectations and aspirations for our children are represented in our desire to drive 3 key areas of learning through every aspect of the curriculum. Our aim is to ensure that our children are not only ready for their next stage in education but are equipped with the skills and cultural capital they need to succeed in education and beyond.  
 
Our 3 focus areas are:
 
STEM (Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering)
Creative Development
Physical development and welfare
 
Our intent, through our curriculum offer is that children will leave Wylam First School with a breadth of knowledge and skills which will allow them to be:
 
  • Creative and critical thinkers
  • Able to problem solve effectively
  • Enterprising
  • Able to persevere
  • Emotionally Intelligent
  • Resilient 
 We also aim to develop the Tyne Community Learning Trust's core values of:
  • Collaboration
  • Innovation
  • Resilience
  • Respect
