Long Term Overview

Curriculum Intent:

At Herringthorpe Infant School all pupils study the national curriculum, religious education and age-appropriate relationships and sex education. The school’s curriculum has been designed to equip our pupils with the essential learning qualities that are crucial for a successful journey into adulthood. The key qualities we instill in our pupils are; Resilience, Communication, Problem Solving, Teamwork & Critical and Creative Thinking.



As an ‘Enterprise School’ we strongly believe in providing explicit links between pupils’ disciplinary knowledge and how this can be transferred into the wider world and to the ‘world of work’. Our school is passionate about ensuring our pupils develop high aspirations and are exposed to job opportunities beyond their current knowledge.



It is important that our pupils understand the relevance of the curriculum they are being exposed to and how the knowledge they gain will impact on their future. Our school’s curriculum aims to develop curiosity in children; nurturing pupils to ask questions and be inquisitive; rather than accepting things at face value.
