At Worth Primary School, we believe that all children deserve an education rich in memorable experiences that allows the children’s creativity and curiosity to grow, alongside their development of key skills and knowledge. We believe that offering our children a strong foundation and a love of learning gives them the best chance to become well-rounded, happy individuals, ready to succeed in an ever-changing world. We provide our children with a curriculum that is designed to be flexible, engaging and exciting so that their unique needs, passions and interests can be embraced.
We recognise the importance of giving our children the best possible start to their education by planning and implementing teaching and learning opportunities that support them in reaching their full potential. It is our intention to provide a stimulating learning environment where all children can work with adults and peers in a climate of mutual respect to develop confidence in their ability to learn. We aim to provide children with a well-structured, safe and active learning environment whilst preparing them effectively for Key Stage One and the rest of their education.
We recognise that children will learn most effectively when they are healthy, safe and secure, when their individual needs are met and when they have positive relationships with the adults who care for them. We aim to provide a setting that encompasses a safe and stimulating environment where children are able to enjoy learning and grow in confidence that helps them to achieve their potential.
In Early Years, we begin with a strong emphasis on intentional teaching sessions and adult-led activities to build the foundation of the children’s learning skills, knowledge and understanding of the curriculum, so that they can apply this learning to child-initiated activities and through continuous provision in the indoor and outdoor classroom.
Our curriculum design effectively underpins the learning that will continue to take place during each child’s time at Worth. We spend time in our indoor and outdoor classrooms as well as taking our learning down to our school woodland area to develop our skills and topics further.
Our children will be actively engaged in their learning and the enjoyment of this learning will be apparent in their daily provision. All children will have experienced a curriculum that provides exciting and enriching learning experiences and opportunities for them to learn through educational visits and practical experiences.
Our young learners will be able to appreciate and understand the world around them by experiencing and learning about different cultures, celebrations, music, dance, art and history. Children will actively ask questions about the world around them and their learning experiences. They will be able to take appropriate risks as opportunities to learn.
Our Early Years children will be successful learners and fully prepared for the next stage of their education as they transition from Early Years Foundation Stage into Key Stage One. We know that by the end of Foundation Stage at Worth Primary School, our children will have developed the essential knowledge and skills required for everyday life and lifelong learning. We believe the children Worth will be happy, inquisitive and successful learners who have bright futures.
