Infants

Ready to learn

For infant years we create an enriching learning atmosphere tailored for success. Our curriculum is meticulously crafted to achieve our goal of preparing them for senior schools.

Furthermore, we prioritise delivering a well-rounded and comprehensive education to all children, starting from their initial experiences in Kindergarten and continuing until they reach the age of 11.

OUR APPROACH

Nurturing young learners

Each form teacher is directly responsible for the pastoral care and welfare of the children in their respective form. Within a relaxed and happy atmosphere, the children gradually become used to a more formal approach to education and emphasis is placed on the acquisition of the basic skills in numeracy and literacy.

At the end of Year 2, all pupils currently sit the Key Stage 1 SATs as a matter of course and we are keen to monitor that and our curriculum is not driven by our testing.

Breaside offers both excellent academic and pastoral care support to children. I could not imagine a better place for our daughter to be at school.

CURRICULUM

An enhanced program designed from excellence

Our children enter the Infant School in the Reception Classes where they continue with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. In Years 1 and 2 they continue to be taught mainly by their own form teacher

They also enjoy access to a wide range of fun and exciting extra-curricular activities and clubs, allowing them to broaden their knowledge, discover new talents and explore the world around them.

Science

Science is taught by a specialist teacher in a dedicated, fully resourced classroom to pupils from Year 2 to Year 6. We have an interactive whiteboard and IT resources including a variety of computer simulations for teaching topics such as the Earth, Sun, Moon and Gases around us.

French & Spanish

Taught from Kindergarten to Year 6 and an annual trip to France in Year 6 gives our children the opportunity to practise the language skills that they have learnt. Spanish club is also on offer and as a school we are very aware of the future needs of our children in the global economy in which we live.

Music

Music is taught by a specialist teacher in a dedicated, fully resourced classroom to pupils from Kindergarten to Year 6. Key skills taught at this early stage are matching pitch, keeping a steady pulse, and copying different rhythms and pitches both with voices and a variety of tuned and untuned percussion instruments.

From Early Years all the way through to Year 6, we pride ourselves on getting to know and understand every child as an individual.
