Curriculum Overview

Whitefield’s mission statement is: “Enjoyment, Achievement and Wellbeing for all” and we recognise the importance of preparing our children and young people for their adult lives and the next stage in their education; however, it is equally important to equip our children and young people to make the most of their lives now. We have therefore, planned our curriculum to support children and young people to experience enjoyment, achievement and wellbeing every day and to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to enable them to make the most of their future lives.

Through a personalised curriculum, one-to-one support and targeted interventions, we ensure every pupil makes progress at their own speed.

Our teachers take the time to get to know each pupil so they can create a curriculum that is right for them and will enable them to achieve their full potential.

The curriculum is designed to help our pupils become:

  • Successful learners who enjoy learning and make outstanding progress;
  • Effective communicators who can express themselves, make choices and build positive relationships with other people;
  • Confident individuals who take a full part in activities within school and the community;
  • Responsible citizens who behave well and make a positive contribution to the school and the wider world;
  • Lifelong learners who leave school equipped for the adult world whether in paid employment, education or supported living.
