Children come into Willow Grove School at any time during their school pathway and at any time during the school year. Assessment and the use of existing information is vital in ensuring that the children are taught effectively and that gaps in learning are addressed.
The curriculum at Willow Grove is enhanced in the following ways:
RE is taught across the school; it has been adapted from the Wigan Borough Scheme of work and tailored to suit the needs of the pupils in our school.
The main reading scheme used in school is Oxford Reading Tree but this is supplemented with a wide range of other reading schemes to ensure that children are engaged with the reading process and are given materials which will motivate them.
Sounds-Write is a quality first phonics programme. Its purpose is to provide classroom professionals with a comprehensive system with which to teach reading, spelling and writing.
