Challenge for all

Challenge For All

We believe that all children attending Woolton Hill Junior School should have access to an engaging and challenging curriculum where they are encouraged to achieve their very best whatever their starting points. Children will develop as resilient and confident learners.


We have high expectations for all our children; we aspire to achieve better than expected progress and for a high proportion of our learners to achieve a greater depth to their learning including those pupils who are disadvantaged.


To ensure this happens, teachers regularly assess and use a flexible approach to teaching and learning.  They plan for challenging, stimulating and enriching opportunities for all pupils regardless of their cultural, socio-economic backgrounds or disabilities.


We recognise that there will be some children, in every year group, that are working above the expectations for their age. Teachers will specifically plan for these pupils so their knowledge and understanding of concepts is routinely broadened and deepened and they achieve a greater depth to their learning. They will learn to expect challenge, develop resilience and be in the ‘pit of uncertainty’ for some periods in their learning journey.
