In key stage one, we offer a curriculum that gives each pupil the opportunity to acquire the social skills and a knowledge and understanding of the world that will adequately prepare them for the next stage of their education.
We aim to provide an environment that is academically challenging and builds each pupil’s confidence, independence, creativity and motivation.
At Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre, we offer our pupils the opportunity to learn in an immersive environment. Our displays are purposeful, to ensure pupils can use easily-accessible resources to develop their skills. Resourcing is state-of-the-art to ensure skills that we are meeting the needs of the 21st century pupil. Classrooms are organised so that pupils feel at home within their classroom and are comfortable to learn and achieve their best. Each classroom is equipped with a ‘learning hub’ which is used by staff to address misconceptions and deliver a tailored educational experience to make sure each pupil succeeds.
