We believe that every child has the ability to learn and should be recognised as a unique individual. This is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge and values. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. We recognise the need to develop and extend every child’s vocabulary. We recognise the fact that ‘knowing more words makes you smarter’ and that poor vocabulary at 5 years old impacts on a child’s education and longer term academic achievements. We know we need to improve the breadth and depth of vocabulary because we understand that this is the biggest factor in reading progress. Our aim is to ensure every child leaves this school with a rich and varied vocabulary that is not based around a child’s academic ability but which is about the exposure we have given to language that has been built around relevant and interesting experience.

At Tibshelf Infant & Nursery School, the curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand experiences, allow children to develop interpersonal skills and build resilience to become creative, critical thinkers.

We have agreed that we want the children at our school to be:

T – Tenacious, I – Imaginative, B – Brave, S – Skilful, H – Honest, E – Enthusiastic, L – Life Long Learners, F – Friendly

Our curriculum embraces the community in which it is situated, recognising local history and geographical links and most importantly aiming to raise the aspirations of our children. The breadth of learning embraces the indoor and outdoor environment on the school site and in the local community. We place strong emphasis on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all our children and our school community has identified a clear set of values that underpin expectations for behaviour for all members of our school family.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this wonderful school and I look forward to working with you as part of our school community.

Zoë Andrews, Headteacher
