The Curriculum at Ashbrook Infant and Nursery School
We believe that all children should have the opportunity to care for the world and each other, learn together and have fun doing so.
Our curriculum promotes high expectations and offers children a rich experience, promoting their understanding of the world beyond the school environment.
Children’s well-being and happiness is at the heart of all we do. We provide first hand learning experiences that inspire children to develop supportive relationships, strong interpersonal skills and independence. We celebrate diversity and promote respect for our own, and the wider community.
Through our cross-curricular approach, children make links in their learning and become creative, critical thinkers.
Teamwork and a sense of responsibility are essential in achieving the positive attitudes that are needed for future learning and success.
Children leave Ashbrook Infant and Nursery School ready for Key Stage 2 and beyond. We have close links with our Junior school and provide extensive transition opportunities. Our children become resilient, confident individuals, ready for their next adventure.
Early Years at Ashbrook Infant and Nursery
Our curriculum continues to evolve. We plan in the moment using the Anna Ephgrave principles to ensure that our children are learning, according to their needs and interests, through play.
This year we have taken part as 'Early Adopters' in the Department for Education's roll out of the new early Years curriculum. We are developing our 'Ashbrook Essentials' for Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development, leading to the specific areas of the curriculum- we will post these here as soon as we are able.
