Each half term we produce a curriculum information letter (see below) to let you know the curriculum your child will be studying in their class.  Throughout the year Key Stage 1 and 2 classes present three class assemblies to celebrate and share their curriculum learning.

We are very proud of our curriculum and hope you will take the time to view our blog to see it in action.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC)

At Kaye’s First & Nursery School we believe that Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development is truly at the heart of everything we do. Our school ethos and curriculum positively promotes the development of such important attributes and skills.

The spiritual development of pupils is shown by their:

  • ability to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values
  • sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them
  • use of imagination and creativity in their learning
  • willingness to reflect on their experiences.

The moral development of pupils is shown by their:

  • ability to recognise the difference between right and wrong, readily apply this understanding in their own lives and, in so doing, respect the civil and criminal law of England
  • understanding of the consequences of their behaviour and actions
  • interest in investigating and offering reasoned views about moral and ethical issues, and being able to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others on these issues.

The social development of pupils is shown by their:

  • use of a range of social skills in different contexts, including working and socialising with pupils from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds
  • willingness to participate in a variety of communities and social settings, including by volunteering,  cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively
  • acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; the pupils develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.

The cultural development of pupils is shown by their:

  • understanding and appreciation of the wide range of cultural influences that have shaped their own heritage and that of others
  • understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures within school and further afield as an essential element of their preparation for life in modern Britain
  • knowledge of Britain’s democratic parliamentary system and its central role in shaping our history and values, and in continuing to develop Britain
  • willingness to participate in and respond positively to artistic, sporting and cultural opportunities
  • interest in exploring, improving understanding of and showing respect for different faiths and cultural diversity, and the extent to which they understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity, as shown by their tolerance and attitudes towards different religious, ethnic and socio-economic groups in the local, national and global communities.

Promoting British Values

At Kaye’s First & Nursery School we believe in promoting and holding true to what we recognise to be British Values.  Much of this takes place through our curriculum teaching while the children are in class during PSHE lessons, Circle Times and RE lessons.  Issues are raised and covered during a whole range of subject areas including during assembly.

The values we seek to promote are:

  • Democracy (e.g. School / School Council)
  • Importance of rules (e.g. PSHE lessons / Circle Time sessions, assemblies, PE and extra-curricular sporting activities)
  • Individual liberty (e.g. PSHE lessons / Circle Time sessions / Assembly)
  • Mutual respect (e.g. PSHE lessons / Circle Time sessions / Assembly)
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs (e.g. Religious Education lessons / Assemblies / PSHE lessons / Circle Time sessions)

 

Extra Curricular Clubs

We offer a variety of school clubs. The clubs we run will vary from term to term for children in Years 1-5. Clubs are run by staff at our school or by outside providers who may charge for these activities. Places at our clubs are offered as fairly as possible and we endeavour to ensure that children have the opportunity to attend clubs.
