The Foundation Subjects are taught within a creative curriculum, The 3I Curriculum. The 3Is are; Innovative, Individual and Inspiring. The 3I Curriculum enables children to make connections between subjects and to follow their own learning journeys; posing their own questions and following an investigation until an answer is found. Learning skills are focused upon; creating confident learners who use initiative and are independent. This approach begins with the Early Years.
The foundation subjects are:
- Art and Design
- Design Technology
- Religious Education – we follow the Northamptonshire Syllabus with Cornerstone ‘Celebrate’.
- PSHE (including Sex Ed age appropriate)
- Circle Time
We work to ensure that our curriculum is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated, to take account of individual strengths or weaknesses whilst providing for progression and continuity. To achieve this the staff adapt their teaching methods to include individual, group and class teaching to impart the subject matter and skill development.
The whole school follows an overall termly theme with age appropriate class themes. Consideration has been given to the theme structure, for example the order of historical periods studied.
