Our Curriculum

Our Vision     

We believe that through a respectful, caring, family atmosphere, we can celebrate our children’s individuality and cultivate enthusiastic, healthy, happy and confident lifelong learners.



At The Gattons Infant School Everybody Matters

We are a Rights Respecting School and therefore we uphold the principles of the 

UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child


Article 28     Children have the right to a good quality education.

Article 29     Education should help children to use and develop their talents and abilities. It should also help them to learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.

Article 31     Children have the right to play and rest.


Our Aims:

We will cultivate an environment where children are happy and secure and enjoy learning, by:

  • ensuring that everyone is treated with respect as an individual whose opinions and beliefs are valued;
  • creating exciting, high quality learning environments indoors, outdoors, and in the wider community;
  • involving parents/carers and children in decisions about the child’s learning.


We will provide a broad, balanced and rich curriculum, by:

  • continuously striving for high standards of achievement through engaging, child-centred teaching;
  • ensuring a wealth of meaningful learning experiences that meet the needs of each child.

We will inspire and challenge each child to achieve their full potential and in so doing lay the foundations for life-long learning,by:

  • developing our children’s confidence and self-esteem;
  • ensuring that our children are active, independent learners;
  • encouraging our children to begin to take responsibility for themselves, their learning and their behaviour, therefore preparing them for life in a changing world.


Information about our curriculum intent and implementation can be found here.  Examples of the work that the children have been doing in each year group can be found under the 'Children' button.
