At Hillborough Infant and Nursery School our curriculum is designed to provide a broad and balanced education; one that is filled with opportunities to show that everyone can achieve and that anything is possible!
By meeting the needs of all our pupils, our curriculum design aims to provide our pupils with skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for their future lives. Our curriculum aims are that our pupils achieve academic success, whilst having opportunities to develop creativity and problem solving, reliability, responsibility and resilience, as well as developing their physical attributes.
At Hillborough Infant and Nursery School well-being is a key element that supports the development of the whole child and promote a positive attitude to learning.
Our curriculum celebrates diversity and utilises the skills, knowledge and cultural wealth of our community, whilst supporting the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
We have identified our current curriculum drivers as ‘Possibilities’, ‘Community’, ‘Arts’ and ‘Well-being’, and these are core to our termly curriculum plans.
Termly topics are launched with an initial WOW in each year group, the term then follows a journey of learning, focusing on challenge questions that are answered through purposefully planned enquiry and skills-based activities.
This all leads to pupils sharing their learning with their families in a final WOW event.
