NWPA curriculum Intent:

Our curriculum at North Walsall Primary Academy is designed to deliver a broad and balanced education to all of our leaners so that they are confident and able to lead successful lives. We work hard to ensure our students understand how their learning links to the wider world and receive opportunities to broaden their cultural capital so they become responsible citizens within their communities and make positive contributions.

At North Walsall Primary Academy, we feel it is important to nurture and encourage children’s natural curiosity, to shape them into inquisitive, questioning learners, who look closely at the world around them and begin to be able to interpret what they see. The children are encouraged to develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world around them, alongside key skills which are transferable to other areas of the curriculum. The geography curriculum is designed in a progressive way which enables children to build on prior knowledge, skills and understanding whilst experiencing engaging learning experiences.
