Mission Statement (for curriculum overviews see downloadable files below)
At Kew Woods we strive to ensure our pupils will:
Be healthy and happy
Be able to contribute to their school and society
Be prepared for a life in the 21st Century
Our twelve focus values are:
Promoting the Fundamental British Values
Citizens of Great Britain are encouraged to:
Respect and obey the law.
Respect the rights of others, including their right to their own opinions.
Treat others with fairness.
Look after yourself and your family.
Look after the area in which you live and the environment.
At Kew Woods we continuously underpin these fundamental British values through our whole school Code of Conduct.
We promote the fundamental British values throughout our curriculum and in particular our teaching of Collective Worship, Religious Education and Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship programmes.
Our topics and whole school themes also promote British values, for example:

Our curriculum meets the statutory requirements of National Curriculum (2014) as well as our own school curriculum that works alongside it. We also deliver the Sefton LA Agreed Religious Education syllabus. We have developed a unique Kew Woods curriculum that is broad and balanced and caters for children’s wide range of needs and interests. Where possible, subjects are brought together in exciting themes that are creative and inspiring and ample opportunities are planned to enhance children basic skills. Our curriculum is driven by creative teachers, the secure knowledge of our children’s needs and our shared vision to further develop independence, confidence, appreciation and a love of learning. We believe in widening and deepening our children’s learning experiences, enabling competence and mastery at all levels.
