At Enstone Primary School we aim to offer a rich and engaging curriculum which encourages a lifelong love of learning. Our pupils are supported to gain knowledge and skills through an approach to teaching and learning which values exploration, creativity, curiosity, independence, collaboration, resilience and reflection. Our curriculum offers enrichment activities that go beyond the classroom and beyond the school day. We are fully inclusive and embrace difference, adapting our curriculum and our approach to meet the varying needs of our pupils. Our expectations are high: all members of our school community are encouraged to embrace a growth mindset and to challenge themselves to be the best they can be.
We use "Letters and Sounds" and "Phonics Bug" to structure and support our teaching of Phonics throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. "Phonics Bug" reading scheme books support children's early reading development by closely matching texts to their stages in phonics development. In addition to these we use "Oxford Reading Tree" as a reading scheme throughout Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2. We also have extensive class libraries of age-appropriate picture books, novels and non-fiction books to further support reading development, plus a beautiful library which children are encouraged to visit regularly.
Detailed information regarding the curriculum on offer at Enstone Primary School can be found in the School Prospectus. See below under Admissions.
