BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

Curriculum

EARLY YEARS

Here at All Saints CEVA Primary School, Stibbard, we use a responsive planning approach. Starting from the child’s interests, we ensure the child remains content, so new learning is possible and that child’s progress is maximised by putting their well being first. We respond in ways that respect and value their unique identity.

We want our children to be fully engaged!

What does this look like?

– happy, independent, confident, unique, taking risks, taking the lead, communicating, challenged, creative, secure, curious, persistent, sociable, enthusiastic

We ensure we set up an enabling environment:

– workshop style both indoors and out. Nothing or very little is set up on tables as the children are able and encouraged to select what they want to do in each area

The resources the children access are:

– Accessible
– Varied
– Open ended
– High quality

Open ended means that there is no set purpose to the resources so children are free to use their imaginations and they are able to select resources that best support their chosen activity.

Adults and Parents involvement

To facilitate learning and this is done through observations and interactions.

– We remain observant, interested and responsive – ready to interact if we can add anything of value to the play.
– We get to know the children very well.
– We enhance and extend the learning at the appropriate level.
– We encourage and support children’s learning.
– We work alongside our children’s parents to enhance Home-School Learning

E-Safety

At All Saints CEVA Primary School we hold children’s safety as our highest priority. This is why we take the matter of e-Safety very seriously and employ an extensive e-Safety programme. We seek to ensure that children across the school become increasingly aware of how to keep themselves safe on-line, protect their identity, recognise cyber-bullying and what to do about it. For more details read our e-Safety policy.

Below are a few websites we would like to sign-post you to so that you are better informed and armed with the resources you need to integrate e-Safety into your households.

You may also like to consider having a family agreement for device and Internet use at home. Follow these links for Family Agreement Advice and a Family Agreement Template.

We hope you will take some time to explore these resources and think about how you will approach e-Safety at home.
