HUNTERS BAR INFANT SCHOOL
We want to implement a curriculum with broad opportunities to develop the whole child.
To develop an ambitious curriculum which achieves the following:
- Responsible, respectful and active citizens who are able to play their part and become actively involved in public life as adults
- Pupils’ understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and mutual respect and tolerance
- Pupils’ character, which Ofsted defines as a set of positive personal traits, dispositions and virtues that informs their motivation and guides their conduct so that they reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others
- Pupils’ confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy
- Pupils’ understanding of how to keep physically healthy, eat healthily and maintain an active lifestyle, including giving ample opportunities for pupils to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities
- Pupils’ age-appropriate understanding of healthy relationships through appropriate relationships and sex education
Most children at Hunter’s Bar Infants benefit from a rich cultural capital which is fostered at home through enriching life experiences, so we strive to provide opportunities that build on an already strong foundation.
Many children at Hunter’s Bar Infants already have high academic and professional aspirations because they have strong role models at home, therefore we broaden and enrich the curriculum beyond National expectations.
Some children at Hunter’s Bar Infants are socially and culturally deprived. We believe school should provide what home is not. Through our curriculum and co-curricular provision, we strive to teach them the skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future; to develop a positive character and to develop pupils’ confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy.
