St White's Curriculum

St White's and the National Curriculum

The school’s The Key Stage 1 and 2 Curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum (2013). It is enhanced with planned opportunities that make up the wider school Curriculum.

Learning is always exciting and in a meaningful context for pupils.  Where commonality exists between subjects and aspects of learning are linked, lessons may be taught using a cross-curricular approach. Where this is not achievable subjects are taught discretely to enable pupils to ‘know more, remember more and do more’. The rehearsal and application of basic knowledge, skills and understanding learned within the core Curriculum subjects, are drivers for the entire Curriculum.

Strong emphasis is placed upon the development of the basic knowledge, skills and understanding necessary for all pupils to become confident, independent learners and in turn, successful adults.
