At Witley C of E Infant school, we ensure our children follow a broad and balanced curriculum.  We have recently reviewed all of our topics to ensure they are exciting and engaging.
Below, you’ll find a brief overview of each subject.  For more detailed subject information, please click on the relevant box. 


Art and Design

The purpose of Art and Design education is to give pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences in a visual or tactile form.

Computing (ICT)

At Witley Cof E Infant school we strongly believe it is important the children are exposed to a wide range of digital devices to support and enhance the teaching and learning in the classroom. A range of IT skills are taught through links to curriculum themes.

Design Technology

In DT, children have the opportunity to design and make things through a range of practical activities. They learn to evaluate their work and experiment with a range of tools and techniques.



English is at the heart of everything we do, and comprehensively covered throughout the curriculum, in all lessons. Knowledge and skills are taught through creative and engaging lessons.


We use Geography to introduce our children to the world around them at local, national and international level. We teach the children about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, as well as an understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.


History introduces our children to what has happened in the past and how this has shaped our present and future, both locally and in the wider world. We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to find out more.

Personal, Social and Health Education (PHSE)

Personal, social and health education (PSHE) and citizenship enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community.


We teach Maths in a practical hands-on way, using everyday objects to solve problems and do simple calculations. Children will be learning how to solve problems and about different ways to make calculations.


In PE, the children learn to master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance agility and co-ordination, individually and with others.
