Walkwood is a place of learning where clear values are taught within all lessons alongside the subject knowledge and associated skills. Our school is “middle deemed secondary”, and the timetable is run as for a secondary school, with great emphasis placed on subject specialisms. Tutor groups are based within four colleges, and each groups is made up of pupils in Year 5 to 8. Walkwood teachers support children in developing their understanding of problem solving and reasoning in a broad range of contexts in which they can explore, enjoy, learn, practice and talk about their developing understanding. Children are offered opportunities for these skills to be practiced in order to give them confidence and competence in their use. Throughout their time at Walkwood, all pupils are encouraged to express themselves creatively and imaginatively, through their reading, writing, speaking and listening. We expose them to a wide range of genres, text types and visual and audio media to stimulate their responses. The Walkwood Learning Roots (all our “Learning Superheroes”: Reflective Learner, Team Worker, Creative Thinker, Independent Enquirer, Self-Manager, Information Retriever and Effective Participator) help our pupils to reflect on their own skills as learners and to develop these skills across the curriculum, in an interactive and creative manner.
