At Kempston Rural Primary School the curriculum is current and relevant and is designed to: provide first hand learning experiences, recognise children’s prior learning, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.
We celebrate differences within our school community and recognise every child as unique and individual. We believe the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values underpins the ability to learn. At Kempston Rural Primary School we provide opportunities to enhance and enrich learning within each year group as we believe that children should have hands on experience, be happy, display a growth mindset, be investigative and have scope to build their curiosity.
Children leave our school with a love of learning and the confidence and skills to make decisions, question, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
Details of each class's curriculum can be found on their class page in the format of a Knowledge Organiser and links to a whole school Curriculum Overview can be found below.
Young children learn through play as well as from the more formal areas of the curriculum. The Early Years Foundation Stage of the curriculum is vital as it is here that the children have their first experience of school. It is our aim to make this experience a positive and exciting time for every child that enters Kempston Rural Primary School.
