Implementation

At Parkhill Infants’ School, our curriculum is delivered through exciting, engaging and creative learning journeys.

 Elements Central to our School Vision and Ethos which drive our Curriculum

The curriculum is well planned and sequenced to recognise children’s prior learning, to nurture and to build on the skills and knowledge that they have been taught previously, taking into account the different starting points for every child.

We provide irresistible first hand learning experiences that inspire our children and make learning meaningful and memorable.  Children at Parkhill Infants’ School have the opportunity to battle knights in a castle, care for a baby dragon, and rescue penguins from Antarctica… amongst many other things!

Where possible, we provide opportunities for learning and making connections in our amazing outdoor environment as we believe this is just as important as learning in a classroom.  This is enhanced by our educational visit provision, as well as bringing in unforgettable experiences for children in school.  These are planned as stunning starters, marvellous middles and fantastic finishes to our learning journeys.   Our theme days and suite of after school clubs further enrich children's experiences and make learning stick!

Our curriculum places reading and carefully selected books at its heart.  We immerse children in high quality literature, not only because we want them to develop their skills as readers but also because we want them to be passionate and enthusiastic about reading.  At Parkhill Infants’ School we believe that Reading Together Makes a Difference!

All curriculum subjects are flexibly interwoven into each learning journey. Alongside this there is discrete, daily teaching of reading skills through our systematic synthetic phonics programme (Read, Write Inc), mathematics (White Rose Maths) and handwriting (Nelson).

 

We believe that all children need careful nurturing to make progress and achieve their best, regardless of background, needs and challenges.   At Parkhill Infants’ School we make the most of every moment in a child’s time with us and provide a wealth of experiences in order to secure long term memories.
