We believe that all children deserve an education rich in wonder and memorable experience - one that allows children's natural creativity and curiosity to flourish, alongside the purposeful acquisition of skills and knowledge. We believe that a curriculum that does this, gives children the best chance to become well-rounded, happy individuals, ready to succeed in an ever-changing world. At Central Walker we strive for our Curriculum to meet the needs of every child that comes through the door and regardless of their starting point, to leave in line with every other child their age.
