At St Helen’s Catholic Infant School, the curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and recognise that they are valued as individuals. This is underpinned by the Gospel values and our Mission Statement, Love One Another. We have high expectations that the children arrive prepared to learn and to face the challenges of a new day.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. Children leave our school with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to learn from mistakes and have the resilience to try again.
