Infant School Curriculum

Our School Curriculum is far more than just the subjects we teach. It encompasses a holistic approach towards character development, enabling all pupils to become confident in who they are and successful in what they do. 

 

Foundation Stage Curriculum Statement

 

Ambition 

Our EYFS curriculum aims to provide opportunities for our children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society. 

Our goal is to ensure that all children are happy and engaged.

Through our child led curriculum, we provide an environment that allows each child to display high levels of concentration, creativity, energy and persistence. The rationale behind this is that high levels of well-being and involvement lead to high levels of child development and indicate deep learning. This curriculum concept should result in significant changes in a child’s learning capacity, leading to better outcomes in relationships and life in general.

Adventure

We believe that children need rich opportunities to initial ideas and activities so that they develop the learning characteristics that will support lifelong learning. Through the EYFS curriculum that we provide the children continually demonstrate their ability to

  •      * play and explore
  •       * learn actively
  •       * create and think critically

Achievement

All children will be inspired and motivated to actively participate in the curriculum: experiencing enjoyment and transitioning through school with the confidence and character to meet the challenges of an ever changing world.

 

 Key Stage 1 Curriculum Statement

  

Ambition

Our curriculum provision provides opportunities for pupils to be engaged across a broad range of subject areas. A skills-based approach to teaching allows opportunities to build upon previous knowledge and experiences, whilst happy pupils engage in exciting and purposeful tasks. Vocabulary lies at the heart of our school curriculum. Allowing children time to talk and enhance their learning is at the heart of our practice.

 

Adventure

Our style of curriculum delivery gives children independence and choice within their learning, whilst maintaining the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects as set out in the National Curriculum. Children are encouraged to organise themselves and develop their skills in all areas, whilst also having the time to explore new opportunities which are specifically designed to build upon their experiences and interests. Our environment and the resources provided, allow the children to explore and develop their own learning journeys whilst also promoting collaborative working. 

 

Achievement

All children are encouraged and challenged to reach their full potential. All children are treated as individual learners and receive frequent coaching across the core subject areas of Reading, Writing and Maths. Children are given to time to develop and master skills within subject areas and an ethos of growth, perseverance, and resilience helps take them towards to success.
