At Whimple School we believe that an effective curriculum should be balanced, wide-ranging
and have clearly defined progression. The curriculum includes all the subjects of the National
Curriculum and the relationships between them.
Main Areas: English, Maths, Science, Information Technology, and Religious Education
Other Subjects: History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, Music, PE,
Modern Foreign Language (Yr3+)
We recognise that the National Curriculum, although providing the progression necessary for
a child's academic development does not provide the balance and range necessary for a
complete education. Therefore, we endeavour to enhance the National Curriculum with such
cross-curricular themes as Health and Environmental Education and extra curriculum
activities such as musical events, activity weeks and the awareness of community needs.
Children have differing learning needs and capacities and therefore we try to match the
Curriculum to those individual needs, at the same time ensuring that no child is denied access
to any part of that Curriculum.
