Curriculum

At Wolverhampton Girls’ High School, we believe that students are entitled to the highest quality education, which enables all students to achieve their full potential, and so prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of future life.

 

Given the academically able intake, the main emphasis of the school curriculum is to prepare students for higher education, but to also ensure that appropriate opportunities are given for all students to realise their full potential.

 

The school curriculum will promote the intellectual, spiritual, moral, social, physical and cultural development of students.  It will also encourage cross-curricular engagement and the broadening of subjects beyond the classroom and into the wider community.

An overview of what is taught in each subject in each year is contained in our Curriculum Overviews. These give a broad overview of curriculum content and order. However, please note that these may be adjusted if required by circumstances, such as staff absences or the results of ongoing assessment.

Catch Up Grant

The school is in receipt of Covid-19 catch up grant.  This is used to employ additional staff as Academic Mentors in a range of subjects.  They work with students on a one to one and small group basis to provide catch up support with a focus upon exam groups.

For details of what to expect where individual students are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.

If my child requires to self isolate what should i do?

 

The remote curriculum is taught via Microsoft TEAMS.

Individual Isolation

When an individual student advises the school that they need to isolate, they will be able to access live lessons remotely via MS TEAMS from the day after the school is notified.

General points

We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, it may be necessary to make adaptations in some subjects. This is particularly the case for subjects with a practical element such as Art, D&T, Music, Science and PE.

A member of staff will lead the lesson unless otherwise communicated to students.  In these exceptional cases, work will be set.

Registers are taken in every lesson and phone calls are made home to follow up on non-attendance. Similarly concerns about engagement are also reported during the session via phone call home.
