Curriculum

 

Reigate Park Primary School offers a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils.  We endeavour to create a firm foundation that fully prepares children with the skills they need for later life. Our curriculum is designed to ensure that our pupils develop fundamental British values and that they are prepared for life in modern Britain.

In the Foundation Stage, children are offered a wide range of play based activities, supported by small group targeted work.  Our main objective is to develop language and social skills in order to support learning.  There is also much emphasis on developing important speaking and listening, numeracy, creative and physical skills.

In the Infant and Junior departments English, Maths and Phonics are of the utmost importance.  By achieving high standards in these subjects, children are able to fully access all other areas of the curriculum.  Science, ICT, History, Geography, Design and  Technology, Music, Art and Physical Education are taught using objectives outlined in the National Curriculum.

At Reigate Park Primary we recognise the importance of developing our children’s personal, social, health and emotional well being. We ensured that it is integrated into our curriculum through the use of SEAL materials as well as being developed through other curriculum subjects. The school also provides support for children who need to develop their self esteem or their emotional development through access to the school's inclusion manager.

Inherent in all subjects are opportunities for the development of cultural and spiritual awareness.  All subjects are made accessible to all children irrespective of gender, culture and ability.

We are proud of our high expectations and work hard to provide worthwhile, challenging tasks activities that allow pupils to seek answers for themselves.  Children are encouraged to ask questions and find out both through independent work and in co-operation with others.  We want our pupils to become self confident, self disciplined and courteous individuals.
