Our School Curriculum

Placeholder r

At Kimpton, Thruxton and Fyfield CE Primary School we believe that learning should be relevant, meaningful, enjoyable, and personalised for the individual. We strive to promote ‘a love of learning for life’ and convey the message that learning is a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone in the school community. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to direct their own learning and to be able to make informed choices in other areas of their lives. We endeavour to ensure that our Christian values of Love, Courage and Respect permeate all our practices and that all members of our community have the right to be safe, the right to learn and the right to be listened to.

We encourage children to be involved in planning their own learning. This may be in collaboration with teachers when planning topics, or independently as child-initiated learning. Children are actively encouraged to self-evaluate what they have learned.

Our main considerations when teaching are to engage and motivate the children to learn and to clearly convey the skills and knowledge required for success. By fostering a positive and safe climate in class, we encourage children to take risks and to independently apply skills in new and exciting ways.

At Kimpton we teach through a Focus Group method which allows every child personalised learning. We keep whole class teaching to a minimum. We acknowledge that people learn in many different ways and we recognise the need to develop strategies that allow all children to learn in ways that best suit them.
