Everyone at Brookland Infant and Nursery School recognises that our curriculum has to be broad and balanced, offer children opportunities to grow and make progress as individuals from whatever their starting points may be. We believe that childhood should be a happy and investigative time, where curiosity and a thirst for new experiences and knowledge is nurtured. We want our children to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to think and act in ways that will enable them to engage in the culture in which they live and to understand and appreciate the cultures of others.
We believe that learning should be memorable, hands on, active and challenging. We also want to develop children’s’ subject specific knowledge, understanding and skills. Therefore, at Brookland Infant and Nursery School we provide a rich ambitious learning environment, both inside and outside the classroom, which is conducive to high quality teaching and learning and inspires a love of learning.
We celebrate and welcome differences within our diverse school community. It is our school’s intent to maximise the potential of all children and so our curriculum is tailored to the needs of our children; one which overcomes potential barriers to learning that we as a school identify.
Our children benefit from the outstanding parental support they receive to develop their English and Maths skills. Therefore, we need to further develop our children’s ability to apply these core skills across all curriculum subjects. This is why at Brookland Infant and Nursery School we implement a cross curricular approach. This enables our children to make meaningful links with their learning, to deepen their knowledge, inspire them to learn more and help them to remember more.
Our Brookland Values (Courage, Respect, Friendship, Tolerance, Honesty and Responsibility) in conjunction with our curriculum enables our children to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society; preparing them for life beyond our school.
Children leave Brookland Infant and Nursery School with the behaviours that they need to succeed in the world. They will be confident and successful lifelong learners.
