The curriculum at Whaley Bridge Primary School is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all children. We are fully committed to developing each child’s unique potential within a secure and caring environment. We aim to teach our curriculum in an engaging, interesting and stimulating way, primarily through a thematic approach which promotes high standards of learning and provides rich and memorable experiences. We want our children to be happy, safe and be able to contribute to the local and global community in which they live.
The curriculum consists of many planned experiences in school and out: lessons, topic days, school council, ECO council, enrichment days, Forest School, Take part in the Art, assemblies, clubs, sports, trips and visits, workshops, residentials, fund raising, and community links. Outcomes may be designed to meet the requirements of the new National Curriculum but also to develop the skills needed for learning and for life.
The National Curriculum underpins all topic planning to ensure coverage and progression. To view The National Curriculum, please follow the link: The National Curriculum
