Vision statement

Chandag Infant School 'Be the best you can be'

 At Chandag Infant School, we welcome all children and their families into our school community.

We are committed to providing a fun, happy, safe and nurturing environment, where children are inspired through a rich and varied curriculum, to become proud and successful learners.

Like fingerprints, no two children are alike. By valuing each individual child and celebrating their successes, we provide space to imagine, to unlock new ideas and to learn without limits. With time to explore and discover, children embark on the learning journey towards achieving their potential.

Through equipping children with skills and resilience, they develop confidence, perseverance, courage and a thirst for lifelong learning.

Our children say:

‘We make friends with everyone. We are warm and welcoming , friendly, happy, thoughtful and kind’.

 As a community working in partnership, we aspire to be the best we can be and to be part of something special. The future starts today.

Our six school values are:

Trust, respect, kindness, courage, cooperation and creativity

Vision and values created with staff, pupils, parents and governors, October 2014.

Our golden rules

  • Respect other people
  • Use kind hands and words
  • Keep safe and look after each other
  • Always try your best
  • Always someone to talk to

Should the children have any problem of any kind, they are taught who to turn to and issues are dealt with promptly.

We discuss equality issues throughout our curriculum and during assembly time.

We have an anti-bullying policy and anti-bullying weeks are held each year as part of the curriculum. We also make the children aware of online safety through our curriculum.

If you would like any further information about our curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or Mrs Weeks in our school office.

Curriculum

The Government published the latest National Curriculum (Pdf, 1.2mb) in 2014 which as a school we follow. It includes resources such as word lists and spelling lists etc. for different year groups in English, and gradually classes will be moving towards embedding these requirements and putting them into practice.

Mathematics contains information about content and information about how children will be assessed on their knowledge in Year 2. 

All schools are required to publish their own distinctive school curriculum, incorporating the national curriculum which can be found on this website. This will give a year group by year group overview of how we plan to deliver this in our school.
