Wootton Park School will offer a broad, balanced and bespoke curriculum with a Crime Science specialism that prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in an increasingly technological and global society.
As a 4-19 all-through school, we will exploit the advantages of continuity and progression to maximise pupil achievement and well-being. The curriculum will reflect the core areas of learning – literacy, numeracy and ICT computing skills. In addition there will be a variety of enrichment activities to ensure pupils‚ wider personal development.
As an all-through free school, pupils will benefit from learning in just one school where they will enjoy the continuity of contact with teachers and support staff. This will enable our staff to establish and maintain a greater depth of knowledge and understanding of our pupils and support each of them individually in achieving their full potential.
Our unique curriculum will ensure:
- all learners achieve and celebrate their academic and personal potential;
- all learners experience high quality education with excellent learning opportunities for all, irrespective of ability, background, disability, faith, gender or race;
- the school fosters unity, responsibility and citizenship through interactions with the community;
- the promotion of community cohesion through working with public services and voluntary organisations;
- an atmosphere of respect, where adults and learners work together in a spirit of co-operation will be maintained;
- a broad, balanced and internationally recognised programme of study supported by first-rate teaching;
- continuous monitoring of each learner‚s progress will maximise success;
- we develop an open, inclusive and welcoming school that provides inspirational learning for all learners and members of staff and a learning hub for the wider community.
The teaching of Applied Crime Science, which draws on the study of statistics, geography, environmental design, psychology, biology, chemistry, physics and economics, will be integrated and feature across the curriculum at all stages.
