Our Curriculum Intent and Vision
At Meltham Moor, we believe that all children deserve an education rich in wonder and memorable experiences that allows children's natural creativity and curiosity to flourish, alongside the purposeful acquisition of skills and knowledge. We believe that a curriculum that provides all of this gives children the best chance to feel safe, secure and belong and provides them with the opportunities to become confident and inquisitive learners.
At Meltham Moor we recognise the importance of giving our children the best possible start to their education by planning and implementing teaching and learning opportunities that supports them in reaching their full potential. We know that our children enter school from a variety of backgrounds and various previous experiences, and it is our role to build on and extend the foundations previously laid.
The Development Matters document along with the Foundation Stage Early Learning Goals set out the end of Reception year expectations for children by the end of the Foundation Stage. We recognise the crucial role that Early Year’s education has to play in providing firm foundations upon which the rest of a child’s education is successfully based.
It is our intention to provide, a broadly enriched, rounded and stimulating learning environment where children can work with adults and peers in a climate of mutual respect in order to;
- feel safe, secure and that they belong
- be confident communicators
- identify and communicate their own needs and feelings
- be creative, curious, and independent learners.
- build positive relationships and work as a team.
- have high aspirations
- seek challenge and be resilient
- be happy and healthy
We aim to provide children, with a well-structured, safe, active learning environment both indoors and outdoors. This will enable them to develop the skills, attitudes and understanding that will form the basis of lifelong learning and encourage them to become useful, active members of a diverse and constantly changing society.
