The Little Waltham Curriculum

Welcome to the Little Waltham curriculum, where every aspect of our educational approach is rooted in our core values of creation, endurance, forgiveness, koinonia, reverence, service, trust, and wisdom. At Little Waltham, we believe that education is more than just academics; it’s about nurturing individuals who will make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.

Our curriculum is designed with a strong purpose, guided by our school vision and Christian values. We believe that education should have a moral compass, preparing children to become exemplary citizens in a diverse and interconnected world. By grounding our curriculum in these values, we equip our students to succeed not only academically, but also socially and emotionally. Our aim is to empower them to become role models who embody the principles of compassion, integrity, and empathy.

Central to the Little Waltham curriculum is the belief that every child has the potential to excel. Our curriculum is informed by the latest research and is designed to be ambitious, broad, balanced, and child-focused. We strive to create an environment where every student can discover their passions and talents, regardless of their background or circumstances. Through a rich and varied curriculum, we foster ‘Life in all its fullness’, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.

Character development lies at the heart of what we do at Little Waltham. Our students are encouraged to become critical thinkers, to question, to explore, and to persevere in the face of challenges. We cultivate resilience, creativity, and self-motivation, instilling in our pupils a commitment to excellence in everything they undertake. Through a combination of academic rigour and pastoral support, we nurture well-rounded individuals who are prepared to navigate the complexities of the modern world with confidence and integrity.

As we prepare our pupils for the future, we place a strong emphasis on developing essential skills that will serve them throughout their lives. Our curriculum prioritises literacy, communication, and collaboration, equipping students with the tools they need to succeed in an ever-changing landscape. We empower our pupils to be proactive in safeguarding their well-being, teaching them to make informed choices and to stay safe in an increasingly digital and interconnected world.

At Little Waltham, education is a journey of discovery, growth, and transformation. We are committed to providing a curriculum that inspires, challenges, and empowers our pupils to become compassionate leaders, lifelong learners, and responsible global citizens. Together, guided by our values, we strive to create a learning community where every child can flourish and fulfil their potential.
