SOUTHBOURNE INFANT SCHOOL VISION
At Southbourne Infant School our values and broad, rich curriculum underpin our aim to enable our children to become creative enthusiastic learners.
Our stimulating and engaging environment encourages our children to be independent, curious and resilient learners, preparing them for life-long learning and success.
The school’s embedded ‘Rainbow Values’ and high expectations of behaviour underpin the school's commitment to the personal development of every child to support them on their individual journey.
We, the children, teachers, support staff, lunchtime supervisors and parents, aim to make our school a happy and safe place, by Following the Rainbow.
During the course of a school year, each child experiences a broad and balanced curriculum, which has special emphasis on the basic skills of language and literacy, mathematics, science and computing.
Children are taught through a series of exciting and engaging topics which involve as much first-hand and practical experience as possible, as well as allowing children to cover broad areas of experience and encouraging study in depth. The topics engage children’s natural curiosity, encourage them to think critically and develop a scientific approach to problem-solving. They cover the National Curriculum requirements whilst developing the children’s knowledge, understanding and skills across a range of areas. We pride ourselves in making the very most of our school grounds and local area. For each year group at least one educational offsite visit is planned during the year. We also try to bring in and meet as many 'experts' and visitors as we can.
As children leave us, they will be enthusiastic, confident learners who are equipped with many skills for their future lives. The rich, engaging and creative curriculum will have provided them with memorable experiences so that they continue to have a love of learning and reach their full potential in the next stages of their education.
