Our Curriculum

The Hoo St Werburgh Primary School


Following extensive research and stakeholder engagement a new curriculum was launched at Hoo in September 2019.

The intent of this new curriculum is outlined below and in the links to the right, however if you would like further details on our curriculum or how it is being implemented, then please do contact the school where we will be delighted to speak about the exciting changes we have made in more detail. You can also follow the links on the right of this page to see more detailed information relating to the mathematics and English curriculums. Also on this page is a link to the “Hoo Layers of Learning “document, which shows the structure of our curriculum.

At Hoo St Werburgh Primary School our curriculum aims to create:

  • A passion amonst our children for life-long learning
  • Learning which is fully inclusive and accessible for all
  • Learning which is relevant to our learners’ world and community
  • Children who aspire to be the best they can be at everything they do

These four aims, combined with our long-standing school values of courage, confidence, respect and belonging sit at the very core of our curriculum and ensure that our learning has a clear intent and purpose for the children in our school.

A fundamental part of the curriculum here at Hoo is helping children become more effective learners. It is our aim to equip children not only with the skills and knowledge to achieve at primary school but also the tools to become effective learners throughout their lives. This “learning toolkit” is created and developed using the L.O.R.I.C programme and aims to help children to become better Leaders, be more Organised, build Resilience, use their Initiative more effectively and become more effective  Communicators both in writing and verbally. Our teaching intent truly values the importance of a rigorous and stretching academic education combined with nurturing and fostering wider personal development leading to well-educated and rounded individuals ready for the next stage of their education.
