Learning at Whyteleafe School

Aim High • Be Independent • Enjoy Yourself

September 2014 saw the introduction of a new National Curriculum for England and Wales. Our curriculum, is derived from this document and enriched to reflect the values that we hold at Whyteleafe.

Our curriculum is balanced and broad and based on our School Vision. It consists of activities designed and encouraged in the school to develop the intellectual, personal, social and physical activities in the children.

It includes not only the formal programme of lessons, but also the ‘informal’ programme of extra-curricular activities as well as the features which produce the school’s ethos, such as equality of opportunity, the values shown in the way the school sets about its task and the way in which it is organised and managed.

The curriculum is planned by our staff team. The National Curriculum provides a necessary framework and ensures continuity throughout the child’s school life.

Our teaching is child-centred in that our pupils are central to all our planning. We have high expectations of our children. We start topics with what is familiar and, using practical activities wherever possible, extend this knowledge. We plan learning to interest and excite our children whilst promoting pupil independence so that they want to learn and enjoy their new skills. Success is a firm foundation for future learning and we show due appreciation of their successes.

Using the inside and outside learning environment, our children experience high qulaity learning experiences across our wide curriculum.  Our planning is inclusive and differentiated to meet all pupils’ talents, skills and abilities.

Our curriculum is underpinned by our Whyteleafe Wheel of Learning which promotes effective learning behaviours in all areas of the curriculum.  Our weekly celebration assembly highlights those children who have been displaying these during that week.

Class Organisation

Each year group consists of two classes and is organised under the direction of a Teaching and Learning Leader who, in collaboration with the Head and Deputy Head, oversees the curriculum and the quality of its delivery.

Classes in each year cover a similar curriculum – but will have individual delivery depending on teacher personality and class needs. The work is aimed at covering the appropriate attainment targets which are detailed in the National Curriculum.

Curriculum Leaders

Each class teacher is able to teach a broad curriculum including the core subjects. Each subject is led and championed by a member of staff who are able to advise, work alongside and inspire colleagues within the school. Specialist help and advice is also available from supporting consultants and by working closely with teachers in other GLF schools.

Teaching Assistants

We employ a number of teaching assistants who are deployed to help and support the learning of the children across the school.

Phonics:  We use letters and sounds for our teaching of phonics across the school.
