Curriculum

Curriculum

Alwyn Infant School is committed to meeting the requirements of the the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and the National Curriculum. Our schemes of work reflect the content and challenge of the curriculum and will be taught with consideration of the needs of all learners. Our curriculum is exciting and will inspire in children a passion for learning. Our curriculum aims to provide breadth and balance with a strong focus on English, Maths and Science but not at the expense of other subjects. It consists of the EYFS Framework, National Curriculum, the locally agreed syllabus for RE and other curricular and extra curricular provision. 


We believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool to promote a love of learning and a willingness to explore. We use our curriculum as a starting point for a broad, balanced and relevant learning experience for our children. It provides an outline of core information and objectives around which teachers develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum. We are committed to developing the whole child and as such our children have the opportunity to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically extended. Our aim is for our children to be successful, independent and motivated learners who are ready for their next stage of education.

We are continually reviewing and improving the curriculum we offer to our children to ensure they have a range of learning experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote thinking and learning.

Maths

We follow the White Rose Maths approach to learning. It is a mastery curriculum that builds a culture of deep understanding, competence and confidence.

 

The mantra is:

EVERYONE CAN DO MATHS; EVERYONE CAN!

 

We aim to create independent, resilient and reflective mathematicians who enjoy it!
