At Whitemoor, the full range of National Curriculum subjects are taught. We adhere to government guidelines, as well as local and national initiatives, but ultimately strive to provide our pupils with a broad, rich curriculum which interests, engages and motivates - providing our children with the transferable knowledge and skills they will need in the future.
At Whitemoor, we are committed to providing our children with a curriculum that matters to them, giving them the knowledge, skills and experiences they will need to become citizens in a global community.
Our policy and long term planning framework for each subject reflects the school's commitment to our Achievement Model and supporting guiding principles, encompassing all three elements: provision, enhancement and enrichment.
Provision - the acquisition of a set of basic skills and knowledge - the right of every child.
Enhancement - providing a broad, rich curriculum which balances the importance of learning both skills and knowledge whilst motivating and engaging children to produce high quality work with 'personality.'
Enrichment - harnessing the skills and knowledge of the local and wider community to provide the very best opportunities for our children, enriching their learning and involving the community in the work and life of the school.
The Core subjects of English, Maths and Science, as well as Computing, have individual policies; whilst the Foundation Subjects have an overarching policy, ensuring that our planning and delivery of each subject is consistent and reflects our overall curriculum philosophy and ideals.
