Due to the poor weather conditions Warbstow School will be closed on Monday 19 March. Conditions have made it unsafe for staff and pupils to get to school and it is uncertain if meals can be provided for children. Please be assured that this decision is not made lightly, we hope to see you all back at school on Tuesday.

Curriculum Statement

Currriculum Statement
As a school we use the Inspire Curriculum to ensure that all primary subjects are covered in an exciting, stimulating and relevant way.

We were involved in helping the Inspire team to produce planning for mixed age classes.

The Inspire Curriculum is made up of 54 themed units, 9 for each year group. Each unit will be taught over about 4 weeks and will cross subjects so that children can transfer their learning from one subject to another.

The Inspire curriculum is committed to:

  • Achievement and success
  • Learning and life skills
  • Creative thinking, innovation and enterprise
  • Learning through exploration
  • Stretch and challenge
  • Developing working memory
  • Creativity
  • Independent and learner-led learning
  • Collaborative learning
  • Outdoors and nature
  • Applied learning
  • Authentic tasks with a real audience
  • FUN and positive emotional links
For more information see your child’s class pages to see the topic plans for each unit.
Curriculum Enrichment
We offer a range of after school clubs such as cricket, athletics, and a film club. These alter each term so please look at our current list under Parents/Extra-curricular clubs. 

On a Wednesday afternoons the Junior children are fortunate to be able to take part in some super music lessons. They are divided into 3 different groups and receive samba drumming, violin and cello, and singing tuition. Each term the children have the opportunity to perform the pieces they have learnt at our music assembly.

The school also takes part in all of the local sporting festivals and runs some events here at the school for other local schools.

Each year all our children from Year 1 upwards enjoy taking part in a residential. This is a very valuable part of the children’s learning. The younger children take part in activities and sleep in the Community Hall; the KS2 children are offered the opportunity to go further afield to places such as Dartmoor and this year the Year 5/6 children will be taking part in a residential trip to Bristol.
