Marlow Church of England Infant School

Curriculum

The curriculum at Marlow Church of England Infant School has been designed to promote curiosity, as well as an enthusiasm and appetite for learning.

Our aim is to ensure that all children, including the most disadvantaged and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) or high needs are equipped with the knowledge which will help to prepare them for their future success, this is also known as ‘cultural capital’.

 

 

We are committed to nurturing children to follow their interests and passions so that they are well equipped to reach their full potential.

As learners they will become independent thinkers, identifying the ways in which they learn most effectively and self-evaluating in order to celebrate their successes and have the responsibility to identify areas for improvement.

We take a growth mindset approach which allows the children to feel as though they can achieve anything if they try their best.

Our aim is to provide a rich, inspiring curriculum which focuses on the acquisition of knowledge through a topic themed approach which makes the learning more meaningful for infants. This approach is enriched by events, excursions, visitors to the school, activities, church and community links which support the learning in the classroom and bring the local community together.  Each topic theme has storytelling at its core and guides children’s learning in different subjects of the curriculum.

We have 10 curriculum subjects and links to each of these are shown below. 

In order to gain the most from their learning, children are encouraged and challenged to apply the knowledge and skills acquired in different ways. This ensures that they master the curriculum and have sound foundations for the next steps in learning.

Personal, social and health education (PSHE) is an important part of our school curriculum.  PSHE is taught throughout each subject and also in discrete standalone lessons or as part of our MindUp Curriculum 

We encourage parents to be involved in their children’s learning and provide information about what and how their children are learning and how to support them at home. Find out more here
