Curriculum Information


At Windmill Hill Academy, we are ‘Inspiring passionate, lifelong learners who strive to make a positive contribution to their community and the world around them’ by providing them with a broad and balanced to inspire and motivate pupils to have high aspirations; provide them with the tools to become assessment-capable learners; and be socially responsible within the school and wider community.

To keep you updated and informed, you will receive curriculum information at the start of each half term. These will outline our new learning, including our history and geography which will be linked to our whole-school learning concept. The project overviews, class timetable, knowledge organisers and home-learning menus are also available for you to view on both our website and class dojo.

Visible Learning

One area that we will be keeping you informed about this year is our 'Visible Learning' journey. Pupils are now familiar with the 'learning sails' which contribute to making a good learner.

They are:

  • resilience
  • tenacity
  • brave
  • challenge
  • question
  • curiosity
  • connect
  • self-aware
  • reflect
Please take the opportunity to ask your child what these mean and when they have demonstrated them.
