Curriculum overview

At Dudley Infant Academy, we aim to provide an ambitious, motivating and enriched curriculum that meets the needs of all children, allowing them to explore and understand the world they live in. We provide opportunities for children to develop as independent and confident learners with high aspirations, empowering every child to become a responsible and successful citizen in the local and global community, becoming life-long learners.

Our curriculum incorporates the key knowledge, skills and understanding set out in the National Curriculum, allowing for other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the children in our academy. It is carefully planned with high expectations to ensure clear progression within all curriculum subjects and aims to support children in gaining a deeper understanding of their learning.

Our Dudley Vision is embedded throughout our curriculum to provide every child with:

A broad and balanced education, covering all aspects of the National Curriculum, as well as important issues such as health, safety, personal and social development and an understanding of their community.

The opportunity to develop skills and acquire understanding which provide a firm foundation for all future learning.

A positive learning experience in an environment that offers equal opportunities for all, regardless of gender, race, social background or physical ability and also encourages children to develop self-confidence.
