The Curriculum at Whitchurch Combined School aims to give children a wide range of learning opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of Britain and the world in which we live.
Our aim is to creatively meet the needs of all of our learners, so they can make clear, relevant connections between different areas of learning and subjects. Inside and outside the classroom we promote British values and SMSC to prepare pupils for life in 21st Century Britain.
In order to excite and engage our pupils, staff work collaboratively to develop the curriculum, keeping it relevant, interesting and challenging. Our pupils are encouraged to take ownership by helping to structure the content.
The National Curriculum is taught mainly through a thematic, topic approach, where we bring together skills and knowledge from a range of subjects into a single unit of work. Subjects which do not lend themselves to the topics are taught separately.
