Our curriculum at Wychbold focuses on excellence, ensuring our exciting and challenging learning opportunities engage all pupils to achieve success.

A Curriculum focussed on sustainability:

As we teach our pupils to love, learn and live as global citizens in an ever-changing world we know there will be many challenges ahead. Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time which impacts on all living things. Due to inequalities, global health issues, more frequent and intense natural disasters, natural resource depletion, increase in global temperatures and sea levels rising, we are now at a pivotal point. The survival of many living things and biological support systems of the planet are at risk. We have to act now. We are committed to working together to educate our pupils about the importance of achieving the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) Sustainable Development Goals. We will do this through our curriculum which will deliver and drive key messages about each of our chosen areas.



The 6 elements and key actions are:

  • Knowledge - To know more, remember more and be able to do more for the benefit of humanity and the planet.
  • Equality - To know that everyone’s human rights should be protected and respected.
  • Innovation - To look at things in different ways and find solutions when faced with a challenge.
  • Legacy - To learn from the past in order to protect our planet now and in the future.
  • Partnership - To know that greater change can happen when we work together.
  • Sustainability - To promote the careful use of resources so that they are available in the future.
