The Whitefield Curriculum is built up from strands of learning within the areas of
- Growth and Personal development,
- Core Curriculum knowledge and skills and
- Global Curriculum and social responsibility.
Pulling these strands together makes the learning stronger.
Ambition is the desire to do or achieve something. To achieve an ambition there must be hope, purpose, intent and determination to succeed. Our Whitefield curriculum is ambitious. It is based on the acquisition of knowledge and skills which are fundamental to learning and will enable children to be the best versions of themselves. We are ambitious for ourselves, but also for others. Our ambition gives us purpose and desire to create change in our society and the wider world.
Ambition nurtures and challenges everyone ensuring that everyone achieves ‘Nothing but the Best’.Thus our curriculum must be Inclusive: everyone is welcome and everyone included
Our Curriculum is built to look beyond the subjects covered by the National Curriculuam to grow our children to develop personally so that they can develop skills to become compassionate citizens in their local and global communities and learners for the future. This we call our Growth curriculum. This includes:
- Rights respecting school
- Jigsaw PHSE
- No Outsiders
- Social Thinking
- Pupil Leadership
- Social Action and Charities
- Careers and aspirations
Our curriculum design is built on the principle that children’s voice is central and we support them to develop their ability to question; to discuss and challenge diverse positions respectfully and compassionately; and to consider views about our world and how we should live in it so that diversities are enabled and celebrated.
