Staff and governors agree that our curriculum, extra-curricula activities and environment should achieve the overall aims and mission statement of the school. We endeavour to provide a quiet, purposeful working environment where children can reach their full potential.
The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. A carefully balanced programme of teaching the National Curriculum subjects is maintained and we seek to deliver a creative programme of study, relevant to our children and the society they live in.
Subjects delivered include Literacy, Maths, Science, Computing, P.E., Geography, History, Music, Art, Design Technology, Primary Languages, Religious Education and PSHE (Personal Social Health).
Subjects may be taught separately or as cross-curricular themes to individual, groups or whole classes of children.
In England Reception age children work on a Foundation Stage curriculum and in years 1 and 2 they work within Key Stage 1 guidelines. In years 3, 4, 5 and 6 children work within Key Stage 2 guidelines. In each case the curriculum delivered will always be appropriate to the age and ability of the individual child.
Children attend a daily assembly. Our Friday assemblies celebrate children’s experiences, efforts, achievements and good manners and behaviour.
Our school actively promotes the fundamental values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. The importance of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC) is also keenly recognised by staff and governors. At Sellindge we promote British values and give opportunities to develop children's SMSC via focussed assemblies, extra-curricular and enrichment activities and through all areas of the curriculum.
If you would like to know more about the curriculum we follow at Sellindge, please talk to your child's class teacher.
