‘Happy, Confident and Successful Learners’


Foundation Subjects

Art and Design


Through our art and design curriculum, we aim to inspire children to appreciate the work of artists, architects and designers through a variety of practical and interesting activities. We believe that it is important for children to recognise the value and originality of their own art work and that achievement in this subject can take many forms.




Design and Technology


Design and Technology at Winterbourne Earls is about each child being involved in the planning, making and evaluation of products designed by themselves. Each child will be given the opportunity to learn how to safely handle appropriate tools and equipment within the context of each activity.

As part of Design and Technology, all children in our school will be taught how to cook, in addition to learning about how to achieve a healthy and varied diet.



Foreign Language


In our school, we believe that learning a language should be fun and accessible for all children, regardless of their attainment in other curriculum areas. At Winterbourne Earls, our chosen foreign language is French.

By the time children leave our school, they will have experience of speaking, listening to and writing in French; as well as an appreciation of French culture. Hopefully, they will feel enthusiastic about continuing to learn languages at secondary school and beyond.




Personal, social and health education (PSHE) and citizenship helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens. Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and communities. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning.


They reflect on their own experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They also find out about the main political and social institutions that affect their lives and about their responsibilities, rights and duties as individuals and members of communities. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.
