Hadleigh Infants and Nursery School Curriculum
At Hadleigh Infants and Nursery School we are committed to delivering an inclusive, broad, balanced and challenging school curriculum for our young children that prepares them for their future learning experiences. The curriculum is designed to develop, explore and ignite interests for all learners. Teaching of the knowledge and skills, set out in the curriculum documents below, is supplemented with trips, guest visitors and a wide range of experiences. Our ambition is to provide the first spark of interest which may lead to the children becoming the next great mathematician, author, scientist, historian, geographer, athlete, artist, designer or whatever role they have been inspired to complete in the world.
The school’s staff are dedicated to improving both the physical and mental wellbeing of children. Daily sessions are designed to support and improve the physical and mental wellbeing of the children. The school has two Wellbeing Champions who consider improvements to practice that could improve our provision further. The school has also developed a Healthy Schools Team to ensure that the school continually promotes the physical and emotional health of the children. As part of this provision the children will be taught about healthy lifestyle choices linked to all aspect of life including: food preparation, diet, exercise and mental health.
At Hadleigh, we also believe that the children benefit from a broad range of experiences. The children will be able to use their experiences to develop their skills and knowledge in a wide range of aspects of the curriculum. Each year group has designed an activity passport which consists of 15 activities for the children to complete during each of their years at the school. It is the staff’s vision that with these experiences the children learn to work together, gain new interests and learn new skills.
Teachers use both formal and informal assessment to inform learning. This is an area that the school continuously develops to ensure that our judgements about each individual’s learning journey are robust. Parents are regularly kept up-to-date with the progress of their children. Our parents receive three reports a year and have at least three formal opportunities, during the year, to visit the school and meet with their child's teacher. Through this provision we have been able to offer parents with formal updates about their child's academic and social development every 6-8 weeks throughout the year.
