Since welcoming all pupils back to school in September, our focus has been on:
• re-establishing school behaviours and routines
• supporting the mental health and well-being of our pupils
• assessing the individual learning needs and knowledge gaps of our pupils
• providing a challenging broad, balanced and diverse curriculum
Is the school running an amended curriculum?
The Federation of Farnham and Rickling has identified three areas of focus for the Autumn Term: English, Maths and Well-being.
The curriculum and school day has been adapted to provide further opportunities to identify gaps within these areas of learning and offer additional time to practise as a whole class, within a group setting or individually. To ensure a full curriculum is offered to our pupils, some adjustments to how lessons are presented have been made. This ensures learning opportunities are available whilst safeguarding both adults and pupils.
At The Federation of Farnham and Rickling the curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. Learning is underpinned by the teaching of knowledge, basic skills concepts and values. We constantly provide enhancement and enrichment opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives. There should be no limits to curiosity and a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.
Our school values:
Love | Honesty | Respect | Caring | Kindness
Are underpinned by our six Learning Powers:
Perseverance | Imagination | Positivity | Pro-activity | Ambition | Self-worth
Our learning values underpin the design of our curriculum and form a reference point for our learning community.
Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, learning new skills to enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year.
Children leave the The Federation of Farnham and Rickling with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
