Key Stage 1
Phoenix Infant Academy follows the National Curriculum. Please click on the link button below to see the DfE document and all of the associated programmes of study:
We strive for excellence in learning and want all our pupils to become successful learners via our broad and balanced, contextualised curriculum. We are always searching for new and innovative ways to make learning more exciting. We base all learning on a 'hook' as a way to engage our learners and develop their language through real life experience. This in turn makes the learning purposeful. We want everyone at Phoenix Infants to enjoy the sense of adventure learning brings and discover how learning changes lives.
We want pupils to be talking about their learning and asking questions which shape the learning in their class. We want pupils to persevere, and reflect on learning, to go back and improve their work.
We have high expectations of ourselves and all our learners. We encourage pupils and staff to be problem solvers with a ‘can do’ attitude. We make use of our location so that pupils experience and feel part of our wonderfully diverse community. We enable our pupils to understand they are citizens of a wider global community too, with a resounding responsibility for our planet. We make sure our school is an inclusive, stimulating environment that reflects and celebrates our creative learning.
