Aims and Values statement Foundation and Key Stage 1
A play-based curriculum
At New Fosseway we believe play is the cornerstone of early learning and the foundation for the rest of a child’s educational journey.
We promote creativity, curiosity and wonder as our overarching aims, enabling children with the skills to not only develop through learning but the ability to engage with and love the world around them.
We put the child first taking the lead from them through providing enriching and immersive experiences. We recognise every child’s journey will look different but together in partnership with parents, staff and other professionals every child will achieve their fullest potential.
Through our play-based curriculum we enable pupils to develop:
- the skills of interacting appropriately with others
- the ability to contribute ideas to the play themes and stories
- a strong sense of well-being, identity and belonging
- skills for thinking and exploring
- skills for communicating
- skills for school and beyond
