We love to learn!
At The Avenue we believe that the curriculum should be as progressive, stimulating and rich. We actively seek to promote a love of learning by making school fun and relevant whilst at the same time ensuring standards are high in order to prepare your children for their future. Our curriculum is personal to our school, we make authentic links across subjects at times, but overall we teach discrete subjects.
The staff and governors work together to continually develop our school’s curriculum content to ensure that the very best provision is made to extend children’s knowledge and skills in every way. In particular we focus on each child’s linguistic, scientific, creative, mathematical, technological, physical, social and emotional development as well as concerning ourselves deeply with their moral, cultural and spiritual growth.
The National Curriculum serves as a framework for our curriculum policy, which allows teachers to respond effectively to individual learning needs. Teaching is flexible, relevant and meaningful in order to prepare children for their further educational development and to enable them to take part fully as citizens within our society.
We deliver a curriculum based on the Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the 7 areas of learning and development. There are three prime areas: communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development. These areas are particularly important for building a foundation for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, forming relationships and thriving. There are also four specific areas: literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.
Through practical activities, purposeful play and talk our youngest children develop an understanding of the world and the basic skills they can build upon in the future years.
