Our key values underpin all we do at Seymour Park; we Respect, Care, and Grow.
Our children follow the nationally agreed curriculum with an emphasis on it being rich, broad, and balanced. Teachers plan lessons to ensure they are well-sequenced and build on prior learning. We want all our children to know more, remember more, and in turn be able to do more.
Children are ‘hooked’ into their learning through high-quality books, which form the basis of our topics. In Year 1 we build on the principles of the EYFS and encourage and promote child-led learning in continuous areas of provision, as well as whole class teaching.
Phonics and reading continue to be a big focus in Year 1, with daily high quality phonic and guided reading sessions. Mathematics is taught following the White Rose Mastery approach which uses a range of models and images to support their learning.
Throughout Year 1 the children will develop links with Friends of Seymour Park; maintaining and improving the parks and Centenary Garden. Our Community is an important member of the school family.
