At Durrington All Saints we strive to offer parents and carers as much information as possible about the curriculum. By clicking on the green coloured text you are either downloading a document, or visiting an external website.
The rationale for the curriculum at Durrington Infants is inspired by and reflects our vision 'Proud to be me and be the best I can be’. We believe it helps children to grow together socially, emotionally and spiritually as individuals as well as one community. It provides many and varied opportunities for all children, no matter their need or interest or preferences. Music, sport, arts, humanities and science are all encouraged and explored and we always provide opportunities for different styles of learning.
We create learners for life by ensuring that our curriculum is relevant and purposeful and prepares children for the next stages of their lives and beyond. Special events, such a visit from an Olympic Athlete, teach children to be aspirational and challenges all children to dare to dream. We want them to be challenged to imagine possibilities beyond their own experience.
Our whole curriculum is bound together by both the school values and British values on which we place so much emphasis and which make us a positive, successful community of learners. Above all, our curriculum is designed to help every single child to ‘Be the best they can be’ in all areas of their lives. Our curriculum aims to fulfil the Salisbury Plain Academies vision - transforming life chances through educational excellence. Success - Pride - Ambition.
