Whytemead Primary Curriculum

Curriculum Statement

Learning at Whytemead is founded on four key principles:-  Achievement, Creativity, Healthy Living and Citizenship.

All staff are dedicated to planning and teaching an exciting and creative curriculum that nurtures children’s passion for learning.

Whytemead Primary School is committed to meeting the requirements of the new primary curriculum from September 2014.

We have invested a great deal of time and thought to ensure that our new curriculum inspires children at our school to fulfil their full potential.
