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 pupils helps to that prepare them for their future life and learning experiences. The School’s curriculum is designed to develop, explore and ignite interests for all learners. Teaching of the knowledge and skills, set out in the curriculum documents, is supplemented with trips, guest visitors and a wide range of experiences. Our ambition is to provide the first spark of interest coupled with high quality provision 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. Our children benefit from being a “Kindness Matters” school and also develop the “No outsiders” attitude through dedicated lessons encouraging acceptance and celebration of difference. We also take part in the Daily K walk to promote both physical and mental wellbeing.


At Hadleigh Infants, 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 a list of 15 things 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 would 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 two reports a year and have at least two 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 throughout the year.
