In the Early Years at Christ Church, we recognise that every child is unique. We aim to excite, engage and motivate all children to explore, play and learn through a broad and balanced curriculum and through developing children’s own interests. We learn about the wider world, as well as making links to children’s own experiences to promote and develop cultural capital. We provide a safe, inclusive and stimulating environment for learning indoors, which adapts and changes to match children’s needs and interests and an outside area where children can develop their gross motor skills, through physical play. We aim to build strong relationships with parents and carers, believing that parents are their child’s first educator and that they know their child best. We place high importance on the development of communication and language skills, particularly as many of our children come to us with English as an Additional Language, or with no English at all. Children engage in high quality interactions with adults and develop positive relationships. We endeavour to encourage resilient children that will persevere and always try their best and children who are critical thinkers with enquiring minds and, with a ‘can do’ attitude, so that they are school ready, with a love of learning and a lifetime of curiosity ahead of them. Our school thrives on diversity and is underpinned by Christian value. Christ Church is an inclusive school where everyone is welcomed and valued. Our whole school vision is to shepherd each other in a safe, loving environment, whilst building a solid foundation to encourage and inspire us to reach for our own star.
