Curriculum Intent

At Carterhatch Infant School we strive to provide our children with exciting learning opportunities and experiences within a broad and balanced curriculum. This will enable our children to leave us both well prepared and confident for the next stage of their educational journey and lives. We are passionate about developing self-motivated learners who love the challenge and adventure of learning.

A focus on the acquisition of basic skills underpins our whole curriculum, enabling children to be successful both academically and to be responsible citizens.

The journey for our children begins in Early Years where children’s natural instincts to discover and explore are valued.  This supports positive attitudes, builds confidence and resilience.

Our curriculum is designed around the needs of our children and community, whilst providing a progressive development of knowledge and skills with a strong focus on learning outdoors. We aim to build on children's prior knowledge through teaching, practising and repeating to support long-term memory.
