Curriculum

Introduction

Imperial Avenue Infant School is committed to providing a broad, balanced and personalised curriculum. We plan a curriculum that enables pupils to foster a love of learning, develop life-long skills and engage in first-hand experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote their thinking.  The central aims of our curriculum are to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and to achieve; and to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. Through a well-planned and organised curriculum, effectively taught by qualified and enthusiastic teachers, pupils are helped to:

  • Gain a love and commitment to learning that will last a lifetime
  • Develop the essential literacy and numeracy skills they need to learn
  • Develop the attitudes, understanding and skills to become successful, independent and collaborative learners
  • Foster their creativity
  • Develop lively enquiring minds
  • Develop personal values, qualities and attitudes and be respectful other people and their views and opinions
  • Develop appreciation and concern for the environment
  • Work co-operatively with others
  • Have high expectations and promote aspiration within the school community so that all have pride in achievement and a desire to succeed and achieve their potential
  • Build effective links with the child’s home and wider community
  • Promote equal opportunities through non-racist, non-sexist and non-discriminatory practices

Our curriculum is designed to reflect our aims and to meet the requirements of the EYFS curriculum, Development Matters, National Curriculum 2014 and other government guidance.
