Our Vision for the Whiteoak's Curriculum
At the Whiteoak Academies, our curriculum is at the heart of who we are and everything we do. Guided and shaped by our vision, values and motto, Planting Dreams. Nurturing hearts. Growing minds., we strive to design and build a curriculum that gives our children a deep and connected knowledge and understanding of who they are, where they have come from and what they might become.
As a school family, we recognise that improving educational outcomes is the biggest way we can positively impact our children’s futures. However, we believe strongly that education is much more than just a set of results. It includes children’s intellectual growth, social and emotional development, citizenship and responsibility, happiness and success. We strive for our vision to be lived in the way teachers develop the curriculum and the way children experience it. We want a curriculum that is effectively designed and implemented, that is true to subjects’ core content and concepts and develops a love of lifelong learning that encourages beautiful work, expertise, fascination and wonder.
Our Curriculum Aims - The Whiteoak Way
As a family of schools, we have created our own Whiteoak Way, a curriculum that supports and encourages our children to develop into well-rounded individuals ready for the challenges of the 21st century.
The aims of our curriculum are that each and every child at the Whiteoak Academies thrives by becoming:
- Knowledgeable & Curious
- Respectful & Compassionate
- Independent & Fulfilled
Our Curriculum Design
From little acorns, mighty oaks do grow.
At the Whiteoak Academies, we strive to ensure our curriculum and enrichment activities are designed to help our children develop strong roots with an excellent grasp of the basics needed for success. For each curriculum subject, we have designed and created our own Whiteoak Way to help ensure our children are not merely covering content, but engage enthusiastically and achieve a depth to their learning which enables them to use their knowledge and understanding across the curriculum.
