Curriculum

Our Curriculum at Prestwood Infant School

We are really proud to be able to offer a broad and balanced curriculum that takes into account the needs of ALL pupils.

 

Our curriculum promotes curiosity and a love and thirst for learning. It is ambitious and empowers our children to become independent and resilient. We strive for academic excellence and want our children to have high aspirations. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are.

 

We encourage our children to celebrate success and build on disappointment in order to develop resilience. We want to equip them with not only the minimum statutory requirements of the National Curriculum but to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. 

 

 We provide a strong SMSC curriculum, with British Values and our core values placed at the heart of everything we do. 

 

We enrich their time in our school with memorable, unforgettable experiences and provide opportunities which are normally out of reach. We firmly believe that it is not just about what happens in the classroom, it is about the added value we offer to really inspire our children.

 

We deliver our curriculum by planning half-termly topics that help our young children to make links in their learning.  In addition to the subjects that are compulsory at Key Stage One, we also include Religious Education (RE), Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and modern foreign languages in our curriculum.

 

The compulsory national curriculum subjects for Key Stage One are:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • Design and Technology
  • History
  • Geography
  • Art and Design
  • Music
  • Physical Education (PE)
  • Computing

 

Curriculum Intent

We intend for all pupils to be working at or above age related expectations.

 

These are the key things that we focus on:

  • Being ambitious and have high expectations of progress and achievement.
  • Ensuring that our curriculum flows between key stages with subject leaders meeting regularly.
  • Ensuring that all learning is sequenced through key stages to make sure that it makes sense and there are no unnecessary repetitions or areas of learning being missed.
  • Challenging our more able pupils and provide extra opportunities for them.
