We have a minibus and we use it! 'OFSTED March 2019'
At Ireby Church of England school the quality of our curriculum is central to our vision:
'Working together, we aim to inspire our children and staff with rich and creative experiences which engage all learners'
These are not just words. As teachers and educators we want to enjoy delivering the curriculum as much as the children enjoy receiving it. At Ireby school we are blessed with a unique set of circumstances. Firstly we have a team of staff and governors totally committed to delivery of our vision. Secondly, we live in one of the most beautiful parts of the United Kingdom with access to virtually unlimited environmental, cultural, economic and historical heritage; and thirdly 'we have a minibus - and we use it!' (OFSTED 2019)
A quick look at our Twitter feed will give you an idea of the learning experiences our children are already enjoying.
Learning in our natural environment is what inspires us. Put simply, the best place to learn about a river is to walk the river, sketch the river and to be in and on the river. From the river flows our art, our story writing, our poetry and our creativity. We want our children to experience their learning first-hand and to be inspired by it. In short, we will 'provide an outstanding start to life.'
Below you will find some helpful documents; including the 2014 National Curriculum which we use support our planning.
In the meantime, please don't hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher(s) for further information about the curriculum or see our school Twitter feed (click 'HOME' tab above).
