Witchampton CofE First School

Curriculum

Our curriculum uses an enquiry-based approach to learning which is  planned  so that all children  have  the opportunity to raise questions and learn in the ways that suit them best, using a balance of different learning styles and activities. Children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness is developed across the curriculum.

All classes plan a variety of trips and visits to stimulate and enhance learning. A very popular educational visit is the Year 4 2-day residential to Leeson House near Swanage during the summer term.
 
Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) is included as part of the school curriculum in accordance with the 1988 Education Act. The Governors have decided that sex education will be integrated within other areas of the curriculum, for example as it falls within the science curriculum and as discussions in PSCHE, rather than taught as a separate subject. This is considered to be more appropriate for the age of the children in our school. 

A new National Curriculum came into effect for pupils in English schools in September 2014. Click here for more information.
