Curriculum Intent Statement - ‘Nurturing Inquiring Minds’
Our intent embodies our school values: Love of Learning; Belonging; Independent Thinking and Determination. Children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure the education we provide meets their needs and is relevant both now and for the future. Inclusion is central to our ethos and we value and celebrate diversity. We aim for our children to be lifelong learners and to develop a love of learning that will grow with them. From the outset, we teach our children that learning is a process facilitated by mistakes and encourage them to identify for themselves what they need to change next time. We promote an open mind set which encourages collaboration and builds confidence, determination and resilience. Our curriculum stimulates children’s natural curiosity, providing opportunities for questioning and independent thinking. It ensures that basic skills are well taught and embedded, to assure children’s readiness for transition to Key Stage Two.
