Our vision at Chaulden Infants’ and Nursery is to enable children to be kind, curious, respectful individuals who foster a love of learning. Key Stage 1 will continue to secure solid foundations that the children created in the EYFS. Our transition into Year 1 is planned meticulously so that children gradually adapt to the more structured curriculum. It is our aim to guide the development of children’s capabilities with a view to ensuring that all children are ready to benefit fully from the opportunities ahead of them. In particular, we want children to develop their independence and build resilience ready for the next stage of their journey as they transition to Key Stage 2 at the end on Year 2.
Our bespoke and inspiring Key Stage One Curriculum is designed to hold our children at the centre of our curriculum as well as immersing our children in a language rich environment. We have designed our curriculum to ensure that vocabulary is progressively taught from the moment they start with us so that all children, whatever their background, can thrive and communicate effectively.
