John Wycliffe Primary School

‘Life is about the journey and we’re making it together’

Our Curriculum

JWPS recognises every child as a unique individual, celebrating and welcoming differences within our inclusive school community.


Our curriculum is designed to build resilience and respect, enabling our children to become creative and critical thinkers with well-developed interpersonal skills who understand how they learn. We recognise and build on each child’s prior learning and provide a wealth of first hand experiences and enhancement opportunities to engage them. We emphasise learning opportunities available throughout our communities and surrounding areas. We firmly believe childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for knowledge.


We believe that play and playfulness are part of life and any education that does not communicate wonder, fascination and delight has failed.


Children leave our school with a sense of citizenship and the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.

Due to having mixed-age-range classes, we operate a 2 Year Cycle curriculum (A & B)
