Our Curriculum Vision

Curriculum Intent

At Tenacres First School the inclusive curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.

Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values with a vision to prepare them for life beyond Tenacres. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities to engage learning. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. We use our Tenacres’ ‘Aims and Values’ to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.

Our aim is for our children to leave Tenacres with a sense of belonging to a community and have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
