Exciting Curriculum Developments at Whitehouse Primary School: Empowering Every Child's Journey
At Whitehouse Primary School, we are thrilled to introduce our new curriculum structure, which aligns with the NEAT Academy Trust's progressive documents. This transition allows us to provide a seamless educational experience for your child, supporting their growth from cradle to career. We want to share the exciting details of our curriculum and how it enhances upon the National Curriculum, going beyond its requirements to ensure a well-rounded education for our students.
Our Curriculum Approach: Building on the National Curriculum
Our curriculum is designed to follow and enhance upon the National Curriculum, which sets out the knowledge and skills that children should acquire at each stage of their education. The National Curriculum provides a solid foundation, and we build upon it by incorporating additional elements that we believe are essential for our students' holistic development.
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): Building Strong Foundations
In the Early Years Foundation Stage, we focus on providing a nurturing environment where children can develop essential skills and knowledge across seven areas of learning. These areas include communication and language, physical development, personal, social, and emotional development, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world, and expressive arts and design. Our curriculum in the EYFS prepares children for future learning, laying the groundwork for their educational journey.
Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Key Stage 2 (KS2): Expanding Knowledge and Skills
As children progress into Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, our curriculum continues to build upon the foundations laid in the EYFS. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that covers core subjects such as English, mathematics, science, and computing. Additionally, we provide a range of subjects including history, geography, art, music, physical education, and modern foreign languages. Our curriculum is designed to foster a love for learning, develop critical thinking skills, and encourage creativity and innovation.
Introducing the NEAT Experience: Enhancing our Curriculum
We are excited to share that Whitehouse Primary School will soon benefit from the NEAT Experience, an enhanced curriculum designed by the NEAT Academy Trust. The NEAT Experience will bring additional opportunities and resources to our students, enriching their learning journey and providing them with a well-rounded education. We are confident that this collaboration with NEAT will further enhance our commitment to academic excellence and the holistic development of our students.
Parental Involvement and Support
We believe that parents play a crucial role in their child's education, and we encourage your active involvement and support. We will provide regular updates on our curriculum, including detailed information on each subject and the specific learning outcomes we aim to achieve. We will also offer guidance on how you can support your child's learning at home, ensuring a strong partnership between school and home.
We are excited about the possibilities that our new curriculum structure, aligned with the NEAT Academy Trust, brings to our school community. Together, we will inspire and empower every child to reach their full potential, equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and values they need for success in their educational journey and beyond.
