Limpsfield C.E. Infant School

Curriculum

 

Children learn best when experiences are first hand, linked to their interests. At Limpsfield children are encouraged to think creatively, to question and to explore. Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and they learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships. Creating a love of learning through an exciting, child led curriculum has to go hand in hand with outstanding levels of progress and, ultimately, raised attainment.

Christian values and high expectations are at the heart of all aspects of our school life, providing a safe and happy learning environment where children are encouraged to develop respect, self-esteem and confidence.

We aim to find exciting ways to educate and this is reflected in our curriculum which includes and exceeds all aspects of the National Curriculum. We use a thematic and cross curricular approach to drive and stimulate learning across the curriculum as well as support pupils in making links between information and skills.

High standards in English and mathematics are a priority with opportunities for children to apply their skills and knowledge in context. We use overarching themes each half term to make learning contextualised for children. We use high quality text to enrich our curriculum.

Underpinning all that we teach are our Limpsfield Learning Powers. We believe that these skills empower our children to be lifelong learners.

These are:

  • Having a go
  • Resilience
  • Share Ideas
  • Curiosity

 

We regularly make use of our beautiful school grounds throughout the curriculum and beyond. Learning outdoors is something we are passionate about, whether we are encouraging our pupils to experiment, discover, connect to the natural world or engage in outdoor sports and adventure activities. We use Outdoor Learning for academic, social, mental health, wellbeing, inter and intra-personal development. 

Throughout the year we offer a range of opportunities for parents and carers to come in to school to experience lessons and approaches to learning for themselves as well as workshops and information sessions focusing on a range of subjects.
