Good morning. The combination of snow and rain has made the school site very slushy. Wrap up warm and stay safe coming in.

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.

The curriculum is planned by our staff team who have an in-depth knowledge of our children and community.  Our curriculum strives to inspire a love of learning and provides children with a rich range of memorable learning opportunities and opportunities to develop oracy skills linked to a strong ethos which permeates through all that we do. 

We have high expectations of our children at all times and pay due attention to direct and indirect learning opportunities.  Promoting and celebrating language is a key feature of all learning at Whyteleafe and we actively encourage children to talk in the corridors and in the lunch hall.

Using the inside and outside learning environment, our children experience high quality learning experiences across our wide curriculum.  Our planning is inclusive and differentiated to meet all pupils’ talents, skills and abilities.  Children have opportunities to be environmentally aware through our exciting outdoor learning curriculum (including Forest School, bee keeping, chickens, wild garden, pond, outdoor classroom).

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.

Curriculum Leaders

Each subject is led and championed by a member of staff who are able to advise, work alongside and inspire colleagues within the school. 

Learning Support Assistants

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