Faringdon Infant School Curriculum Intent Statement
At Faringdon Infant School, our curriculum is designed to be rich in meaningful first hand experiences and early language development. We recognise the varied starting points of the children and the power of early language and literacy in allowing children to access learning across the curriculum both in their early childhood and throughout their learning journey.
The curriculum in all year groups is built on a strong commitment to the personal and social development of our young learners. Embedded through the curriculum are our Learning Muscles; a set of desirable learning behaviours which equip children to become inspired, excited and motivated learners.
We have a restless drive and aspiration to ensure that the curriculum enables continued readiness for the next stages of development and education, and improves the life chances of each all children; adapting provision to meet the needs of different groups and individuals. This means that we remain responsive to ways in which we can keep both the local community and the interests of our learners central to curriculum content and review. 1
