Our Whole School Curriculum
Our curriculum model was created jointly by staff and governors and shows how our Ethos and Vision links everything we do. Our curriculum is a knowledge-based, strategically planned, sequence of learning.
Everything we do at Kingmoor Infants is underpinned by our desire for every child to have strong mental health and the tools they need for life long, secure mental health and well being. We pride ourselves in the high priority we give to mental health and wellbeing across our curriculum.
Children have a range of opportunities and experiences which enhance and enrich their learning. We believe this helps children to make connections between different areas of learning and allows us to deepen their understanding.
Prerequisite substantive knowledge is the bedrock of our learning. Creative thinking makes up the disciplinary knowledge of our curriculum.
This is the reasoning in Maths, the enquiry in Science. It is the tactics in Sport and the ability to lead a healthy life, and the application in MFL. It is creative thinking that makes learning more than memory, and the future proofing of pupil’s next steps.
Our curriculum takes into account our children's prior experiences, culture, local surroundings and children's understanding of life in modern Britain. To see more about how we enrich our broad curriculum check out our newsletters (on sway or PDF) and our active facebook page
Key Stage One
In Year One and Two we ensure coverage of the National Curriculum as a minimum. Our curriculum is knowledge and vocabulary rich, ambitious and pays attention to informed practice. We aim to provide a wealth of engaging and enriching opportunities to promote children's learning
Early Years Foundation Stage
In Nursery and Reception we ensure our curriculum meets the requirements of the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage 2021. In Reception we use aspects of the Oak Academy which builds on Development Matters 2021.
The whole curriculum design project was completed in partnership with Kingmoor Junior School to ensure that our curriculum is based on a progressive framework from Nursery to year 6.
- We aim to provide and happy and secure environment where all members of our school community respect and value each other and themselves. We promote equality and the creation of an environment which champions respect for all.
