Eastburn Junior And Infant School


At Eastburn our curriculum is underpinned by the following principles:

-Children will be taught how to learn through ‘Building Learning Power’ so that they can become effective life-long learners.


-Priority is placed on embedding the fundamental skills of Reading, Writing and Maths so that children can make the most of opportunities in school and beyond.  


-Learning builds progressively within and between lessons to enable children to weave their knowledge, understanding and skills together.


-In the wider curriculum, subject-specific skills are taught rigorously and progressively throughout school. Children have opportunity to make links between areas of learning and to develop their talents and interests.


-A strong emphasis is placed on equipping children with the social, emotional and behavioural skills necessary to become resilient individuals and positive members of society.


-We ensure that children read and experience a rich range of literature in order to stimulate imagination, develop empathy and promote a love of reading.


-We plan opportunities for children to build their knowledge of the wider world and develop an appreciation of other cultures, in order to raise aspirations and broaden their horizons.
