Niton Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers with a love of learning.

Our staff team have spent time thinking about the location of our primary school and what the Isle of Wight has to offer our children, as well as thinking about the skills we want our children to develop during their time with us so that they can successfully continue onto the next stage of their learning journey. The skills of reading, writing and maths continue to be at the heart of our curriculum offer, unlocking all other subjects. In order to promote curiosity most topics are enquiry based, raising questions to spark the children’s interests. Teachers work to plan exciting hooks into topics, this could be a visit or visitor into school or a day of exciting activities introducing the learning. We make links across subjects wherever possible in order to immerse the children in their learning, carefully monitoring the coverage of all subject areas. For each topic we ask children to complete a baseline so we can assess their prior knowledge. This way we can extend the learning of each individual, building upon knowledge and skills they may already have in each subject area. The tasks presented to our pupils are challenging and we encourage the children to have a go, take risks and make mistakes working together to develop their interpersonal skills and resilience. The children have told us that they can work harder and as a result our brilliant staff team are working harder to provide the children at Niton with a range of rich learning experiences.
