Curriculum Overview

At Long Buckby Infant School, we have a clear understanding of how children learn and continually strive to provide the best possible conditions in order to facilitate this.

We strongly believe in preparing children for life. Pupils who are encouraged to think creatively and independently become:

  • more interested in discovering things for themselves
  • open to new ideas
  • keen to work with others to explore ideas
  • willing to work beyond lesson time when pursuing an idea or goal.

Our approach is based on themes, where possible, that inspire and engage children in their learning. This focus will ensure that Literacy and Numeracy are integrated across the curriculum. 

Information about the themes come home with your children from school at the start of each term. If you would like to come and visit the school to find out more about our creative curriculum you are more than welcome. We acknowledge that we live in a changing world and that we need to prepare our children for tomorrow’s needs. We recognise the importance of developing a caring and stimulating environment, where children’s high self-esteem enables them to take risks in their learning and to learn confidently from their mistakes. We encourage children to ask questions and learn how to solve challenges and problems.

As a school we follow two different curriculums.

Our Reception children follow 'The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum' and children in Year 1 & 2 (Key Stage One) follow 'The National Curriculum' which was introduced in September 2014.
