Early Years Curriculum

Overall Vision: Every child to be the best that they can be

School values: We show respect, we make the right choices, we roll up our sleeves.

Curriculum intent: Igniting young children's passions to aspire to their dreams tomorrow

 

We want all children to leave Foundation stage well prepared for the next stage in their education by being:

Good communicators who listen, ask and answer questions and share ideas,

Active independent learners who are interested, curious and enthusiastic about learning and make the right choices for themselves,

Confident and motivated learners who are open to challenges and are sociable and empathetic towards others,

Children equipped with the basic skills and a strong foundation to flourish in today's society and have awareness of own individual unique talents.

 

Curriculum implementation: Enabling young children to be independent, resilient and successful learners

 

  • Continuous upskilling of all staff on curriculum and pedagogy through CPD and modelling
  • Flexible transitions
  • High emphasis on Communication and Language and Early reading and Early Writing 
  • Building positive relationships
  • Strong partnerships with parents focusing on whole family support such as parents involved in planning - see parental engagement
  • Breadth in curriculum - woodwork, swimming, planning for children's interests, learning from external professionals
  • Depth in curriculum - Scaffolding learning to promote critical thinking leading to independent learning (case study - example in practice)
  • Targeted evidence-based interventions
  • Challenge for all - open ended learning
  • High expectations in language and use of ambitious vocabulary
  • Multiple opportunities for children to access learning in a variety of ways (reading and writing, speaking and listening and maths in everyday routines everywhere)
  • Purposeful adult led, child-initiated and peer to peer learning
  • Autonomous and deep level learning based on children's individual interests.
