Curriculum

Curriculum Intent – At Roxeth Mead School our vision is to create a school which encourages its children to be successful learners, confident individuals and to achieve personal success. The building blocks of learning, which make up ROXETH are the foundations on which our curriculum is built. Our aim is that these elements run through every lesson, experience and opportunity.

Our curriculum allows / offers:

Respect – activities rooted in respect of others and our surroundings

Opportunity – that is ambitious and creates memorable moments, awe and wonder and joyful experiences for all

eXcellence – in all that we do including quality and attainment

Engaging activities that create enthusiasm and a joy of learning that will last life long

Transferable Skills – cultivating skills that can be applied in a range of contexts

Humour activities that enable fun and laughter

Curriculum Implementation – Staff plan and develop activities that build on prior learning. Progress from week to week, term to term and year to year should be clear and children should be able to talk about their learning in an age appropriate way. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in our Kitalu, Pre-School and Reception classes.
