Curriculum Intent

 By the end of Reception at St. Bartholomew’s, all pupils will:


  • have developed their independence, self regulation, confidence, resilience and curiosity through adult led and child initiated learning


  • have a positive ‘can do’ attitude towards school and learning and know the behaviour expectations in order to be ready for the next stage in their education


  • develop awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues


  • have been provided with a balanced curriculum, based on the EYFS, across the seven areas of learning to enable the children to achieve the early learning goals
