In Stourfield Infant School the children come first. Everything we do in school is to help the children feel safe, happy, motivated and clear in their learning and relationships. The school has a highly-skilled staff team and we pride ourselves on the quality of teaching and learning for our pupils (Ofsted gave us Grade 1 in all areas in Jan/Feb 2007).
We are proud of our school and of the good values we promote, as well as the excellent achievements of our children. The children are partners with us in learning. We work very closely with parents, Stourfield Junior School and many outside agencies to maintain a high quality experience for the children. The school is a centre for the Development of Thinking Skills’ and as such we equip pupils to take an active part in their own learning and social relationships.
Our passionate vision is to create an inclusive Community School which promotes high expectations of success and recognises achievement in all areas of development. Stourfield Infant School thinks about the needs of all its children, now and for their future.
Every child is an individual with unique talents and our school strives to ensure that all children begin to develop an initial understanding of their potential, as a contribution to life-long learning.
We teach children to take positive, proactive responsibility for thinking about their own learning, thinking about how to learn together and about the outcomes of their words and actions.
Stourfield Infant School achieves this by developing a broad, balanced and nurturing curriculum. We build and model relationships which are based on mutual respect, honesty and care. We provide an environment and curriculum that is stimulating, creative and flexible to meet the needs of each individual child in our care.
Together we can nuture and encourage confident, self motivated children, who enjoy learning, through an enhanced curriculum.
Stourfield Infant School aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all children, in order that they will develop academically, physically, socially, emotionally, aesthetically and spiritually.
At Stourfield Infant School we believe that integral to high quality Teaching and Learning is effective planning and assessment. Monitoring of these areas is essential to allow individuals, teams, and the whole school to reflect and develop practice accordingly. Children will be given a range of opportunities and encouraged, from the Foundation Stage until the end of Key Stage 1 to:
- explore and play
- talk/communicate and discuss with adults/peers
- plan, do and review
- evaluate their own/others work
- see learning modelled
- demonstrate knowledge and understanding
- consolidate learning
- investigate and apply learning
- ask questions and seek solutions
- use concrete apparatus
- engage in first hand experiences, using senses test hypotheses
- summarize learning and draw conclusions
- make learning links
- reflect on their thinking/learning
- make and learn from mistakes without fear
- make appropriate choices
