Early Years Curriculum

Nursery

Vision

Our vision for the foundation subjects is for children to learn about where they live and the wider world. We build on children’s prior knowledge and experiences, moving them beyond their personal experiences. Primary education should prepare children for their secondary education. When our children go to secondary school, we want them to feel equal as well as having the confidence and knowledge to participate in lessons, conversations and debates. Through the foundation subjects and the rest of the curriculum, we want children to gain knowledge of themselves through learning about others, this means that the curriculum reflects the different cultures within our school context.

We aim for children to build on their prior knowledge, retrieve and compare it using four over-arching themes. These themes are Legacy and Impact, Citizenship, Gender and Equality and Citizenship. 
  • Through learning how significant individuals, both past and present, have had an impact on our lives today children will learn that they have the ability to have a legacy and impact on society, if they choose to do so. 
  • Using the knowledge of their own communities, children will build on this by learning about different communities around the world, both past and present. Children will also learn that our school is a part of the local community and that they play an active part. 
  • In order to further social justice, we want our children to have equal opportunities and choices. Through learning about gender and equality and how it has changed over time, children will develop views and learn that everyone should be treat fairly, without discrimination. 
  • We want children to know what it means to be a good citizen and that working together can have a larger impact. We aim to begin by working together towards the betterment of our whole community. This will lead to children understanding how communities grow, adapt and thrive, both in their own community, around the world and in the past.
