Welcome toBilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’


Living our values, learning for life, preparing our futures

What do we want our curriculum to achieve?

  • Deliver the vision and values of the school
  • Enable our children to learn how to participate effectively in our society through a set of core values: 


Honesty, Care, Perseverance, Responsibility, Co-operation and Respect 


  • As the curriculum progresses, enable children to know and do more than they did before
  • Provide opportunities to make connections 
  • Place a strong emphasis on language and physical development 
  • Enable children to explore their interests, talents and achieve their full potential within and beyond the classroom
  • Be inclusive and overcome barriers, so all children can 'be the best they can be'. 

How do we fulfil this?

  • Enable children to experience a broad and balanced curriculum using The Curriculum Guidance for Early Years and Foundation Stage and the new 2014 National Curriculum as a starting point
  • Place a strong emphasis on values
  • Use high quality texts, with significant authors, as a key starting point for much of the learning
  • Use a cohesive whole-school approach, where sequences of literary work are provided that sit under themes, mapped throughout the school
  • Enable connections to be made between some curriculum areas whilst leaving some curriculum areas to be taught discretely
  • Build on and build from previous knowledge with the understanding of where we want our children to get to by the time they leave us
  • Class teachers are responsible for teaching our curriculum with specialist P.E. coaches alongside our teachers in P.E; we utilize specialist staff to deliver KS1 Music
  • Take account of the growing body of knowledge which deepens our understanding of how children learn
  • Learning is being developed so it is sequenced into small steps, clearly modelled and scaffolded; questioning is used to check for understanding; content is reviewed to build fluency and confidence; and opportunities for regular practice are provided so children know and remember more
