Our curriculum has been designed to ensure our pupils have every opportunity to explore collaborative learning, knowledge of the world and enriching vocabulary.


PHONICS - This takes place daily in Key Stage 1 to assist pupils with their basic skills in reading and writing. At Westfield our pupils follow the 'Letters and Sounds' programme.

READING - We follow the Oxford Reading Tree programme to aid in the teaching of reading.  This is often enhanced by other schemes which suit the varying abilities of our pupils. Year 2 also take part in the Accelerated Reader programme.

WRITING - Staff carefully select vocabulary enriching texts that inspire pupils to explore many writing genres that are both fictional and non fiction based. Many of our texts link to the wider curriculum supported by satellite texts. 


Maths Mastery is a specific programme followed to teach the basic skills of maths through a mastery approach. Ensuring pupils have a deep understanding of the key concepts needed within Key Stage 1.
