Our creative curriculum reflects our diverse community and through opportunities to play and explore, establishes the foundations of our children to become life-long learners. In Early Years, positive behaviour is reinforced and celebrated through our school values; caring, respectful and curious. Children start to develop into knowledgeable learners, confident communicators and active citizens. As a Gold Rights Respecting School, our youngest children begin their journey to becoming global citizens and will build on this as they move through the school.
Developing the whole child is a key priority. We use The Characteristics of Effective Learning to reflect how our children learn, supporting the children to approach their learning in different ways. We have high aspirations for our learners and our skilled practitioners carefully plan and teach through a range of focused, adult led and independent activities. Learning through play forms an essential part of our practice and allows the children to embed their learning and follow their own interests, whilst fostering social interactions. With Oracy at the core of our whole-school curriculum, Early Communication and Language is a priority in the Early Years and forms the foundation across all of the children’s learning. We continually innovate and reflect our own practice to meet the ever-changing needs of our children.
