The Curriculum at WHA
We are proud and excited about the curriculum at Western House Academy (WHA) because, after all, that is what we get up in the morning to deliver!
At WHA our aim is to reflect and build on the strengths of the rich diversity of the communities we serve as a vibrant framework in which children:
- discover a love of learning that gives them the momentum to succeed
- become academically, digitally, and socially confident
- make ambitious progress at every stage, whatever their background or circumstance.
Every subject in the curriculum offered at WHA stands on four broad aspects; Values, Knowledge, Equality and Experience. These underpin every decision teachers make in order to teach effectively.
Seeing that we have a multicultural cohort, it has been decided to adopt and follow a tried and tested RE scheme (Discovery RE) and an RSE scheme (formally PSHE) called Jigsaw –the latter of which has been adopted by the Park Federation. This is to ensure our parents can be confident that the material delivered has no bias and delivers the national requirements. These schemes have been adopted because they also fit with the principles of our curriculum and have a range of experiences – not just knowledge.
