Our aims are listed below and all of our contact details, staff members and email address can be found on our website – www.whitchurchprimary.co.uk

Our aim is to educate your child to best develop his/her potential and to provide a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated education, within the framework of the National Curriculum and the Bath and North East Somerset Education Authority’s Curriculum Statement.

In order to achieve our aims we will endeavour to provide opportunities for children to:

  • Listen attentively and with understanding for enjoyment and information.
  • Read fluently, with understanding for enjoyment and information.
  • Write legibly and attractively, with good spelling and grammar and to use those skills to express themselves clearly, whether functionally or imaginatively.
  • Acquire and apply computational skills with speed and with accuracy and to understand the applications of mathematical ideas in various situations.
  • Be aware of the geographical, historical and social events of the local environment, the country at large and of other places and times.
  • Develop agility, physical co-ordination and strength and the ability and confidence to use these skills alone or in co-operation with others.
  • Be sensitive to the needs of others, acquire moral values, and develop habits of self-discipline and acceptable social behaviour.
  • Acquire a range of ICT skills.
