Curriculum Statement
PLEASE NOTE:
This year we are developing our curriculum to enable the children to follow their own interests and have a say in what they learn.  We have worked hard to develop our learning environments to encourage independent learning and foster a research and enquiry based approach to children's learning.  We also want our children to present their learning in ways that suit them.  Our Learning Journals will reflect each individual child's learning.
 
Our staff team, in compliance with the statutory requirements of the National curriculum, have agreed that the following curriculum aims and the developing curriculum plans are relevant and appropriate to the needs of our children .

It is the intention that the design and delivery of the substantive and bespoke curriculum achieves the following aims :

·       Encourages and inspires the children to develop independence, aspiration, a love of learning and a sense of self belief.

·       Develops and embeds set skills that prepare children for a future of life-long learning and employment.

·       Develops and encourages children to become reflective learners and take responsibility for their own learning and recording.

·       Develops children’s personal confidence and motivation to observe, question and think.  To enable them to pose their own questions and follow their own lines of inquiry.

·       Develop children’s capacity to collaborate, respect and share others views/opinions, beliefs and cultures.

·         Develop in children the importance of perseverance, resilience, empathy, respect and tolerance so as to better prepare them for life in the twenty-first century.

AT THE END OF THE YEAR OUR BESPOKE CURRICULUM PLANS WILL BE PUBLISHED AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD ON THIS APPROACH.
