Curriculum

We are proud of our approach to learning approach and are committed to ensuring that our children are motivated, inspired and enthused by a curriculum that meets everybody’s needs. We recognise and embrace the unique nature of our surroundings and community in our curriculum design. 

Our creative curriculum follows a broad theme each term. We invite ideas and suggestions for tackling these themes from our children and families and integrate these wherever possible.

Curriculum Overview

At Sleights, we believe that purposeful, practical and collaborative experiences are central to inspiring learning. In line with our school vision, when we work together with purpose, we believe that children are happy learners, who flourish and succeed.

 Sleights is safe and happy learning environment that provides children with rich opportunities for children to flourish and succeed.

Our approach:

Collaboration among staff and children is an integral tool in curriculum intent implementation and impact.

  • All staff and children are encouraged and supported to take risks in a safe and nurturing environment.
  • Learning is exciting, engaging and inspiring for all.
  • Well-planned and purposeful learning opportunities provide broad curriculum access for all learners.
  • Principles of Early Years practice and the characteristics of effective learning underpin the entire school curriculum across the full age range.
  • High expectations and standards and a culture of ongoing development and improvement leads to rapid progress and attainment.
  • All subject areas are valued equally and have the same importance and impact on the whole curriculum.
  • Children’s interests, exploration and prior experiences drive curriculum developments and progress.
  • Learning is ‘brought to life’ through opportunities to engage with subject experts and visits.
  • Learning will be open ended and allow all children to consider “Where will learning take you?”

Our creative curriculum follows a broad theme each term. We invite ideas and suggestions for tackling these themes from our children and families and integrate these wherever possible.
