At Kenmore Park Infant & Nursery School we intend to create effective learners by promoting
behaviour for learning. We aim to achieve this by providing our learners with a relevant broad &
balanced curriculum which comprises of all the planned activities that we organise in order to
promote learning and personal growth and development.
The curriculum includes not only the formal requirements of National Curriculum, but also a
range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of
the pupils. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the pupils learn from the way they
are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach our learners how to grow into aspirational,
rights respecting, visible learners, who have the capacity to work both independently and
when required to co-operate with others while developing a progression of knowledge and
skills, that enable them to achieve their true potential.
We believe that an effective curriculum is underpinned by the values that we hold dear at
school. It is the means by which the school achieves its objective of educating children in the
progression of knowledge, skills and understanding that they need in order to lead fulfilling lives
(UNCRC- Article28: All children and young people have a right to a primary education, which should be free. Wealthy countries should help poorer countries achieve this. Discipline in schools should respect children’s human dignity. Young people should be encouraged to reach the highest level of education they are capable of).
Our curriculum is designed with these principles in mind: it is personalised, reflecting the
background and experience of our pupils: it is outward facing, setting learning in global contexts
wherever possible; it celebrates diversity to emphasise unity; it is rooted in authenticity and
context so that learning is relevant. High value is placed on establishing strong parental
engagement partnership working to impact in a positive way on pupil’s outcomes.
TEACHING & LEARNING.
At Kenmore Park Infant & Nursery School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the idea that both adults and children learn new things every day. This is echoed in our strap line ‘Together Achieving Life Long Learning’ (T.A.L.L.) and expanded on within our mission statement. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun. Through our teaching we promote and develop the behaviours for learning equipping children with the skills, knowledge and understanding of the dispositions of an effective learners which support the school’s drive to encourage increase independence and personal responsibility for their learning & making informed choices. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives
