At Whitesheet Primary CE Academy, we have designed a knowledge engaged curriculum that aims to be irresistible and ambitious and equips all our children for life-long learning and adventure, within their own community and the world beyond.
In order to ensure that learning is relevant and meaningful to all our pupils, skills are learnt alongside knowledge, predominantly through the delivery of a fully inclusive and immersive, topic based curriculum. Teaching and learning in this way, supports children to make connections within and across their learning experience. Immersive cross-curricular teaching allows children’s natural curiosity to flourish, alongside the purposeful acquisition of knowledge and skills; deepening their engagement and understanding. At Whitesheet CE Primary Academy, we firmly believe that every child can master an understanding and love of mathematics. All our children are taught Maths for mastery through an inclusive and transformative approach, which helps every child to develop a deep, long-term and adaptable understanding of mathematics.
Carefully planned opportunities aim to inspire a life-long love of learning, promoting positive learning behaviours and helping all our children to grow as confident and ambitious individuals, ready to succeed in an ever changing world.
Through the curriculum, all our children will have the opportunity to become the best communicators, innovators, creators, designers and performers they can be. They will learn about the wonders of the world around them, with opportunities to investigate the history, geography and science of their world. They will learn about themselves as human beings, their place within their community and the world beyond and begin to understand the positive impact they can have on their own lives, the lives of others others and the world in which they live.
