Be a Young Learner at DIA (EYFS)


Our Curriculum Intent -

(developed by all members of the Academy community (Children, Parents, MDSA's, Office staff, teaching assistants and teachers)

We DEVELOP our children by:

  • Promoting independent skills (social, emotional, resilience, stamina) considering the whole child.
  • Having high expectations for all children to be their personal best.
  • Providing a nurturing, safe, secure environment to deliver an engaging, immersive, inspirational curriculum through creative planning.

We INSPIRE our children by:

  •  Providing experiences they may not otherwise access.
  •  Being positive role models and demonstrating a ‘can do’ attitude to learning.
  • Providing memorable and exciting experiences through a thematic approach to learning.

We aim for our children to ACHIEVE:

  •  Their individual potential whilst experiencing success and meeting their personal goals.
  • Self motivation with a positive mindset with a love of learning.
  • Being active members of their community with a toolbox of life skills that prepare them for the future.

We have long term plans which outline key topics that will be taught over the year.
