At Sherford Vale School & Nursery, we follow the National Curriculum and staff make every effort to enrich the educational experiences of our children so that they are motivated, engaged and excited about their learning.
Our curriculum has been designed as a response to what we already know about our pupils, irrespective of social background, culture, race, gender, differences in ability and disabilities. We believe that children have a right to expect a curriculum which is fun, motivating, interesting, challenging and most importantly purposeful; developing in every child the skills to be responsible, ambitious, active learners who are great communicators and respectful global citizens. It aims to build on what has previously been taught and learned to ensure that academic achievement, physical and mental wellbeing, growth of character and personal development are intrinsically linked for the purpose of equipping our pupils with firm foundations of the requisite knowledge, skill and strength of character needed to be successful in their education and in life.
Our ‘HEART’ Values are set out to drive the curriculum and provide all stakeholders with explicit understanding of the school’s vision in securing quality of education for all pupils.
