We aim to provide a stimulating, challenging and ever-changing curriculum that will help to encourage children to become resilient, confident, lifelong learners. The curriculum is designed for a learning community in which everyone’s unique strengths are valued whilst independence, tolerance and respect are promoted. Children are encouraged to take an active role in the decisions made about their learning and to be able to articulate their strengths and areas to develop. They are involved in planning and evaluating their learning and risk assessing their activities.
The curriculum at Emsworth Primary School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum and is designed to be purposeful, varied and realistic, with a menu of opportunities which makes links with children’s first hand experiences. We adapt the curriculum and our teaching methods to the needs of each group of learners at our school.
Families are kept up to date with curriculum content through home-school communication, invitations to special events or assemblies; a termly invite to ‘Share a Tray’ where your child hosts you and shows you evidence of their learning; open mornings/afternoons; parent/teacher meetings and subject workshops.
