Our mission at Colham Manor is to inspire children to achieve more than they ever believed possible.
In our EYFS and Year 1 we strive to give children a strong foundation to grow, explore and achieve as learners and we want them to feel happy, safe and secure, in an enabling environment where everyone is valued and respected. We are committed to developing positive relationships where children’s well-being is paramount. We want children to feel nurtured and that they have a voice. We also value Parents/Carers voice by working in close partnership with the families who know their child the best. In both the EYFS and Year 1 we ensure that the opportunities we provide are inclusive for all and we believe that every child has the right to achieve their full potential.
At Colham Manor we use the Dimensions Curriculum, ’Learning Means the World’. We believe our curriculum reflects the real world and is brave, forward thinking and relevant. We enthusiastically believe that young children learn best through play and exploration so wherever possible we offer children the opportunity to experience real life events that are linked to their learning. Just to name a few, every day our children get the opportunity to be an artist, writer, mathematician, scientist, designer or a storyteller!
In our EYFS, we plan and deliver learning using the . This covers the seven areas of learning:
-Personal, Social and Emotional Development
-Communication, Language and Literacy
-Understanding the World
-Expressive Arts and Design
In Year 1 we plan and deliver learning using the National Curriculum and implement continuous provision throughout all subjects and throughout the school day. The outdoor environment is fully embraced in both the EYFS and Year 1, and children have access to learning outdoors all year round.
