The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject. To view this, please click on this link: National Curriculum
The early years foundation stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of your child from birth to 5 years old. All schools must follow EYFS standards for learning, which can be found through the following link, EYFS
At Chaloner we aim to instil the very highest expectations in behaviour and learning. We continually reflect and develop our commitment to our children and the community we serve. Our Chaloner Curriculum provides our children with the skills for life and learning so they become strong, confident and independent learners who mature into global citizens, fulfilling their dreams. Our aim is for every child to be proud of their achievements and develop the confidence and ambition that they can achieve more. To be happy and heard, know their full potential and strive to be the very best version of themselves.
At Chaloner, in communication with staff and pupils, we have created a curriculum where every subject is progressive from the very first starting points to the end of children's time with us. Learning builds on previous learning and opportunities to revisit and secure knowledge is included. Each unit has Chaloner Essentials, which are the learning expectations, the knowledge secured by children after each unit of work. Our Curriculum has been carefully planned for our children and their learning needs; their locality and life experiences. Beginning with a secure understanding of who they are, what they already know and where they belong before branching out to understanding the wider world and knowledge further afield.
Often a mistake is seen as something you must unlearn. Chaloner is not a school of unlearning, we listen more to our dreams than our fears. At Chaloner we believe mistakes are an opportunity to learn something new, change the way you think about something, challenge your understanding. The language of wrong/not correct is changed to rethink this, approach it in a different way, try to solve this problem, you’re not quite there yet. One of the greatest freedoms is how we react to things.
