Our why ...
At John Betts Primary School we offer a curriculum rich in wonder and memorable experiences. We work hard to provide a stimulating environment that provides exciting learning opportunities, promotes challenge, exploration, adventure and a real love of learning.
It is our intent that all children develop physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally in an environment which values all cultures, communities and people. We aim for our children to be confident and independent, to believe in themselves and interact positively with others. Children will have a good understanding of both mental and physical health and the importance of this. They begin to gain skills in self-regulation and have the confidence voice their wants and needs.
We understand that play is an integral part of learning and this is at the heart of our Early Years Curriculum. We believe that the correct mix of adult directed and uninterrupted child-initiated play ensures the best outcomes for pupils. We want learning to also be driven by their interests to ensure maximum progress. Warm and positive relationships between staff and children, consistent routines and strong relationships with parents and carers are key.
We want every child to have the best opportunities, tailored learning to their individual needs. We recognise the crucial role that early years education has to play in providing firm foundations upon which the rest of a child’s education is successfully based.
