Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
In Foundation Stage our core intention is to provide all children with a creative curriculum that meets their needs and sufficiently challenges their development.
At centre stage is our unique, inspiring curriculum that is implemented through a sequence of progressive skills, covering all areas of learning and responds to children’s physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs.
The impact upon all children throughout their journey in Foundation will prepare them with the skills needed for their next stage in their learning.
During the Foundation Stage, children develop their skills of; creating and thinking critically, playing and exploring and active learning. Learning is exciting, fun, practical and hands on. We develop the children’s early reading and writing skills through an exciting phonics program called ‘Read Write Inc.’ The curriculum embraces the children’s development in the areas; Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
At Stanford School, we believe that each child is unique and should have opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments. We believe that all our children should have the care and support to reach their potential and become independent learners.
