Curriculum Statement

Our curriculum is designed around the principle of greater learner involvement in their work and how this will grow them into more independent learners. It requires deep thinking and encourages learners to work using a question as the starting point. It also has Thinking skills embedded into every lesson.

With this in mind when designing our curriculum at Whiteheath Infants we decided to introduce a theme each half term across the school with each year group having a question as the title for their main focus and for the beginning of each lesson. We want a Whiteheath child to be a curious and inquisitive learner, who wants to ask questions and find answers.  By doing this their knowledge and skills will deepen and become more embedded, therefore, ensuring our pupils’ know and remember more for their continued learning.

Overview of Topics

Continuity and progression in the curriculum are built around the National Curriculum Programmes of Study. These are broken into year group expectations and have additional challenges for able learners. The Whiteheath Curriculum Road Maps will ensure that the learners’ knowledge and essential skills are being developed, alongside National Curriculum requirements.
