At Whinfield Primary School the children access an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum. We aim to identify and remove barriers to learning and provide suitable learning challenges that respond to diverse needs, including those of the most able. This encompasses a variety of exciting, first-hand experiences to enable children to acquire appropriate skills, knowledge and understanding preparing them for today’s world.
In Reception classes they follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
Years 1 to 6 children follow the National Curriculum. This includes the core subjects: English, Mathematics and Science and the foundation subjects: Geography, History, Art & Design, Music, PE, Design & Technology, Computing and PSCHE. Children in KS2 are taught a Modern Foreign Language, we have chosen to teach French. (links or straight to Curriculum Content?)
The Department for Education state there is a need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.” View our approach to British Values on our website.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Whinfield Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report
