Our Aims

Aims Statement

At Whitnash Primary School we aim to provide a secure, happy and stimulating learning environment where everyone is valued and encouraged to do their best at all times

To achieve this aim, the school will:

  • Establish a home/school partnership to help children learn
  • Offer praise and encouragement for positive attitudes, behaviour and work
  • Provide a safe and trusting environment in which everyone can grow and develop
  • Give each and everyone equal opportunities
  • Encourage everyone to take pride in their work and surroundings
  • Build a school in which everyone is committed to high standards of teaching and learning


The governing body’s main function is to support the head teacher in the management of the school and to ensure the school provides the best possible education for the children. Meetings are held twice a term and governors are regular visitors to school.

Our School Governors serve for a period of four years and represent a variety of groups from the local community.

The Curriculum

We aim to provide a broad balanced curriculum to allow everyone to develop lively enquiring minds and to be able to ask questions and make reasoned arguments with understanding. We believe that everyone should be treated as an individual. They should be taught in a way which will help them enjoy learning and which will extend their knowledge, experience, imagination and creativity.

Through our teaching and their learning, we hope your child will:

  • develop the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics
  • express themselves clearly and confidently in speaking and writing
  • listen carefully and understand what they hear
  • learn to research and record information
  • have practical experience of using technology
  • understand the geography, history and environment of the area in which they live and the way this relates to the wider world
  • become aware of and tolerant towards people of other races, religions, ages and abilities
  • acquire agility and physical co-ordination
  • explore music, drama, art and movement.

Early Years

Our early years curriculum aims to encourage all children to experience a positive start to school life and a love of learning. We build on what they already know and can do, through purposeful, carefully planned activities. Learning takes place in indoors and outdoors in a secure and supportive learning environment.

Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage, the National Curriculum, together with the National Strategies for Literacy and Numeracy form the framework for teaching and learning in our school. At Key Stages 1 and 2 the following National Curriculum subjects are taught:





Design Technology





Physical Education (including Swimming

Religious Education

Religious Education

Religious Education is taught to all children following Warwickshire’s Agreed Syllabus. Whenever possible the work is linked to the “theme” for the term. The main emphasis is on Christianity but all the main faiths of the world are studied at some stage. Through studying RE we hope children will develop tolerance, respect and understanding of all people. Local church ministers are invited to contribute to our Acts of Collective Worship.

Sex Education

Sex Education is addressed through the Science programme of study - “Life and Living Processes”. Where incidental and spontaneous references relating to sex education arise through other areas of the curriculum, children’s questions are dealt with sensitively and honestly.

The curriculum we offer is constantly being reviewed to ensure we offer the best opportunities for the children we teach


We believe it is important for the school to assemble together on a daily basis to share feelings and thoughts in order to develop our identity and collective responsibility as a community.

Parents are encouraged to come into assemblies on Wednesday and Friday. Ministers from local churches come in to take a Whole School Assembly on a half-termly basis.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Sex Education lessons (where the content is not part of the Science curriculum), RE lessons or collective act of worship. We do ask any parents who wish to take up this option to speak with the Head Teacher and to notify the School in writing of their wish.

Special Educational Needs

Children progress at different speeds and have different abilities. Through careful planning, assessment and monitoring of their progress, we identify all children’s learning needs from those having difficulties to the very able.

We are committed to using our support and resources to help all children achieve their potential.

If we are concerned about your child’s progress, we involve you so that we can work together to support their learning.

From time to time we may contact outside agencies for specialist support or guidance, such as speech therapists or Learning Services.

If you have a concern about your child’s progress, please contact the class teacher who will be happy to talk to you.
