Curriculum Intent Statement

Our pupils’ needs and backgrounds and our values for learning underpin all areas of our curriculum:

Kind – Kindness and compassion for their fellow human beings enable them to live and grow in a safe and compassionate world. A world in which we all wish to live and grow!

Brave – Young people who are eager and confident to acquire the skills and knowledge they need to succeed and compete in the world in which they live and grow.

Curious They are explorers who are curious and proactive, always seeking out answers to new questions and ideas, which helps our pupils to grow as independent learners who want to find out more and understand key concepts in greater depth.

We offer a designed range of experiences and provision which support a full spectrum of academic, physical, spiritual, moral, social and cultural activities that enrich children’s lives and provide them with the confidence, skills and knowledge to progress to the next stage of their education.

We provide high quality teaching and learning for children from the age of 3 years old to 7 years old. The curriculum topics are relevant and focused on areas of interest for our young children. All learning starts with an open key question for children to consider, explore and challenge themselves with. Skills, knowledge and understanding are mapped for every child in every area or subject of learning, securing progression from Nursery to Year 2. The precise mapping of skills has been developed as a result of the passion, desire and expertise of outstanding practitioners who want to ensure that children are inspired and excited by the quality of the curriculum, but who are also carefully supported to build on prior learning.

We believe that our pupils should experience a rich curriculum which balances academic and personal development. We recognise the importance of all National Curriculum subjects. Physical and mental well-being are valued and prioritised through our consideration of curriculum design. We teach all subjects in the National Curriculum, as well as following the agreed local syllabus for Religious Education, along with a well-planned and structured program of personal development.
