Brookland Infant and Nursery School
‘Be Kind, Grow Together, Learn Forever’
Our curriculum values and finds a balance between both skills and knowledge which when combined enriches the learning experiences for our children. It is delivered through topics which interest and inspire our children whilst simultaneously providing a meaningful and engaging context for their learning. We make the best use of our local environment to enhance teaching and learning. We also incorporate educational visits welcome visitors and parents into school to enrich our curriculum; fully acknowledging the importance of cultural capital.
At Brookland Infant and Nursery School we have developed a broad curriculum which is driven by 4 learning principles that we believe our children require to become successful life-long learners.
Our 4 learning principles:
Our children will become effective communicators; being able to express their thoughts and ideas and communicate their feelings, wants and needs. This is seen across the school in a variety of ways. We believe that communication is the foundation of all relationships and is essential for social interaction, play and learning skills to develop.
Our children will become effective learners by developing resilience, risk taking, confidence, responsibility and pride. All of these elements drive self-improvement and result in highly motivated lifelong learners.
Our children will be inquisitive learners who question, reason and explain. They will acquire subject-specific knowledge and understanding as set out in the EYFS statutory framework and National Curriculum so they reach and exceed their potential. Through the teaching of British Values linked to our Brookland Values, our children will be responsible young people who are prepared for life in the diverse modern world. We will enable our children to understand their place within the world and how they can positively contribute to society. They will develop a respect of others through an understanding of our world and the people and cultures within it.
Our children will develop as healthy learners who understand the importance of a healthy body and a healthy mind to prepare them for learning. Our children will develop positive characteristics. We will provide them with the tools and strategies required to deal with situations in a positive and effective way.
