At Whitehall we believe that every child is unique and that we are in a very privileged position to be part of their learning journey.
Our curriculum is a values based curriculum and we have just started our journey to becoming a Rights Respecting School which places the Rights of the Child at the core of all that we encompass. This is set within a framework where knowledge and skills are also valued as children acquire the elements which will help them carve out their own destinies and pathways. Critical thinking and being open to new ideas and challenge, and having a thirst for knowledge, without being afraid or dissuaded, is one of key aims.
We do not shy away from topical content and we are always changing our topics and curriculum content to ensure our pupils are exposed to the latest in thought and debate. We believe that by equipping our pupils with opportunities to explore their own voice and opinions, whilst respecting the rights of others, is one of the strongest values we are most proud of embodying and promoting.
Philosophy for Children lessons and lessons based on the Sustainable Development Gaols underpin our curriculum and give our children a cannon through which all of their learning is undertaken.
