At Shadsworth Infant School our aim is to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum for pupils of all backgrounds and abilities. We want to spark curiosity, awe and wonder and inspire a lifelong love of learning. We value the importance of providing first hand experiences and broaden our learning through trips, visits and outside visitors. We immerse our children in a language and vocabulary rich curriculum which is carefully sequenced from EYFS to Year 2. We develop children’s understanding through rich, connected learning opportunities and experiences so that our children can connect new knowledge with existing knowledge. The broader curriculum contributes to not only to academic achievement but also spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development.
