At Whitegate Primary and Nursery School, we are proud to provide a high quality, creative and challenging curriculum that is inclusive and ambitious for all.
It is our ambition for every child at Whitegate to:
Enjoy, Achieve and Excel
We aim to create a culture of high aspiration and expectation, which is fostered within a secure, caring and happy environment. This will enable all children to achieve their full potential: developing both academically and socially. They will leave Whitegate as lifelong, independent learners, who are invested in their education, feel a sense of belonging as local, national and global citizens and are keen to play a positive role in society.

To enable this vision and underpin our curriculum aims, we maintain a Values Education Policy. The school values incorporate the fundamental British Values and are promoted and lived out by all stakeholders, in all parts of school life.
Our thematic curriculum is delivered through the drivers of History (developing a sense of time) and Geography (developing a sense of space). By discovering the events of the past and exploring the world around them, we aim for children to continually develop their sense of identity and belonging.
