Overview

Introduction

Governing bodies are required to produce a Curriculum statement annually. This replaces the requirement under the School Framework and Standards Act 1998 for a Curriculum plan.

There is an expectation from the government for all mainstream primary schools to deliver the National Curriculum. St White’s Primary School has therefore modified our School Curriculum accordingly to ensure that we meet the current aims and statutory requirements.

St White’s Primary School believes in creating and implementing a vibrant Curriculum that will inspire pupils, build their resilience and support them as they deepen their knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to be successful in their lives. The Curriculum delivery will be exciting, engaging and motivational and will broaden pupils’ experience and knowledge of the world and Britain’s place within it.

The Curriculum is all encompassing, to ensure the school promotes learning as well as personal growth and development. It includes the formal requirements of the National Curriculum but also the array of extra-curricular activities that the school organises, in order to enrich the experience of all pupils. It is underpinned by explicitly intended teaching and learning and communication of rules, values, and beliefs that will be conveyed within the classroom and globally throughout the school environment. At the heart of this principle is the determination to provide a positive, safe learning environment for all pupils, which promotes fundamental British Values. Everyone has equal and individual recognition and respect and there is a shared ethos which promotes care and respect for one another. The celebration of success and our commitment to the continuous improvement and fulfilment of potential in every pupil is central to our Curriculum philosophy and will actively encourage ever-increasing independence and self-discipline amongst the pupils.

We are continually reviewing and improving our Curriculum.
