Curriculum Intent

At Bradwell CE Infant School we work together to develop children’s academic potential and personal qualities through child-centred learning opportunities, supporting them to become well-rounded individuals. We nuture skills, knowledge and understanding within a Christian ethos, where our values of kindness, respect and independence are prioritised. We equip children with the tools they need to develop physical health and mental wellbeing. We strive to provide opportunities for the children to explore places, cultures and experiences that they would otherwise not have access to, through trips, events and planned activities which build and develop their cultural capital.

Bradwell CE Infant School – Curriculum Policy


We follow the National Curriculum and place a high emphasis on the teaching of the National Curriculum core subjects, English, Mathematics and Science. Alongside these we develop skills, understanding and knowledge in the following National Curriculum subjects: Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, Physical Education, Computing, PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) and Religious Education. Much of the work is based on whole-school topics and themes, which are carefully planned to meet our children’s needs and the legal requirements of the National Curriculum.
