National Curriculum Information

School Vision

At Wherwell School, we offer a curriculum designed to equip the children with the resilience, confidence, knowledge, skills and experiences to enable them to thrive at school and in the future.

Curriculum Intent

We promote and stimulate the love of learning by giving it a relevant context and meaning. Through a well-resourced environment, a belief in high standards and enrichment, we help our children feel safe, valued and confident. We provide challenge, in a meaningful context, to enable our children to become the insatiably curious, creative and responsible citizens of the future.

We recognise and value that each child is an individual.  Our curriculum provides a varied, yet tailored learning environment, where all children can develop as independent thinkers, with the curiosity and resilience to prepare them to become positive members of the community.

We will challenge the children “to be the best version of themselves”, in everything that they do and we will guide them to build strong and beneficial relationships. Our rich and varied curriculum builds on prior learning and focuses on the journey that pupils take, with the emphasis being on progression, not perfection. During the learning journey, we seek to promote self-belief and celebrate effort. 

Our curriculum will encourage the children not just to be considerate individuals with a moral responsibility, but it will ensure they know how to value themselves and others and celebrate diversity.

Our school has a unique family ethos which remains at the heart of everything that we do. Our core values (Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Care) underpin our teaching and learning and provide an environment which enables our pupils to be confident and happy people.

Curriculum Overview


All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religion or linguistic background.   We strive to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and children who are learning English as an additional language.   We provide a rich, challenging curriculum which stretches all of our children.   Staff are aware of children who have exceptional talents and gifts and monitor their progress carefully to ensure their academic potential or talent is continually developed.
