Foundation Subjects

Our foundation subjects focus on subject disciplines to ensure that coverage and progression are not lost within the thematic approach.  Each subject is mapped out individually and seizes every opportunity to address disadvantage and promote equality, filling in gaps from individual and groups of pupil’s backgrounds, including cultural capital. .  Lessons encourage children to revisit, recall and apply previously learned skills and knowledge to different contexts.  Sequences of lessons are carefully considered to build on components of knowledge that lead to conceptual understanding and clearly defined end points. 

The links below show our long term overviews for each foundation subject.

Parent workshop - Relationships, sex and health education

The video below outlines The Willesborough Schools' approach to teaching Health, Relationships and Sex Education. Phil Hollamby, our PSHE subject leader, discusses the statutory content, our curriculum and how it is delivered. He shares the resources (including videos) teachers use. Parents/carers have the right to withdraw their children from aspects of sex education only. 


Children in Year 5 and Year 6 will be learning about the above between Monday 28th June and the end of Term 6.
