At Whinmoor St.Paul’s we believe all children have the right to receive a quality, well rounded education that raises aspiration and focuses on high expectation. We seek to deliver a curriculum which inspires and challenges our children to become confident and competent in their own abilities and which enables them to move forward in life and learning.
Our journey is always underpinned by the central Christian belief that ‘Every child is a unique child of God – the future adult members of our society,’ and as such, we work closely with parents and carers to ensure our children receive the help and support they need to attain and make excellent progress, regardless of their starting point. As a Church of England Voluntary Aided School, we provide our children with opportunities to explore and develop their own beliefs based around central Christian and British Values including kindness, tolerance, respect and choice. These values include the highest expectations of positive behaviour and are reflected all aspects of school life including assembly times and times of Worship.
We offer a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum covering all areas of the National Curriculum and enhanced by additional art, dance and drama projects, educational and residential visits, sporting activities and musical opportunities. Lunch time and after school clubs, led by staff, children and outside coaches further enhance our curriculum offer to our children and we ensure that regular learning updates, drop – ins and newsletters ensure our families know what is on offer and can support us, where they are able to.
