Whitleigh Community Primary School

Children at the heart of the school - School at the heart of community



Aspirations is one of the core aims of our curriculum. We aim to give our pupils a clear understanding of the broader skills and knowledge that employers are looking for, enable them to develop and use these skills to enhance their work in and out of school, and establish a strong foundation for future aspirational pathways.

Aiming high and striving for the very best is embedded in school through our three values of responsibility, resilience and respect.  Children who can see the relationship between what they are learning and the possibilities it opens up for them in later life are likely to be far more motivated to achieve.

Children begin to form stereotypes about occupations, careers and universities from the age of six. Having the opportunity at primary school to meet a wide range of people doing different jobs is really important. Run in partnership with the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), Primary Futures connects primary schools with inspirational, diverse volunteers from a range of careers, who connect with schools to talk to children about their jobs and show how what they are learning at school can lead to an interesting, exciting future.
