Curriculum Statement

At Hook Infant School, we are passionate about promoting and instilling a love for learning through an exciting and stimulating curriculum for all our children, where they are motivated to learn, share their ideas, value and respect each other’s contributions and achieve their best.  We aim to provide pupils with the knowledge and skills needed to become lifelong independent, resilient learners and thinkers, and confident, happy and articulate citizens.   

In Year R, the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum is carefully planned and tailored to the needs and interests of the children and is delivered through play in an interactive and exciting setting that encourages them to explore and make sense of their own surroundings, in both the indoor and outdoor areas - whatever the weather!  In Years 1 and 2, the National Curriculum is embedded and enhanced through exciting half termly topics which the children contribute to designing based on what they already know and what they may like to find out. Our Trailblazers initiative for all year groups ensures that learning is facilitated through indoor and outdoor activities, and through this creative approach, enables us to make learning meaningful, relevant and engaging. Developing the whole child is of key importance and, with this in mind, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum which encompasses our vision of ‘Every child, Every day, Every Future’ alongside our school and British Values.
