Our school has clear values and expectations about how we teach children and how children learn. The key principle is to prepare our children for a lifelong love of learning, hence our school mission statement –
Mandale Mill, Making an Impact on Lifelong Learning.
Whatever stage of learning your child is at, and whatever age they are, we aim to provide a curriculum which will allow for a range of learning styles to be accommodated and will stimulate self-reliance and independent thinking and learning.
Children are taught through a themed approach taken from the Cornerstones curriculum. Each theme will engage the children and offer exciting and stimulating contexts for their learning. We are currently in the process of reviewing and adapting our curriculum to ensure that it meets the needs of all and that we provide challenging, exciting opportunities for our children. We want our curriculum to ignite a lifelong love of learning by being balanced, meaningful and enriching.
If you have any questions about our curriculum or the work we do in school, please speak to your child’s class teacher or alternatively, contact our Teaching and Learning Leader, Miss Clarke, who will be happy to help.
