Our Curriculum

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.

The attached PDF file further explains the curriculum used at Whitchurch Combined School.

Our curriculum has been developed so that it now matches the programmes of study for the new National Curriculum. We have been working on aspects of this since January 2014, to enable a smooth transition for our pupils. For further information on the National Curriculum, please click on the link below.
