Teaching and Learning

At Driffield Church of England Infant School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the idea that both adults and children learn new things every day. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives. We all work together to ensure that our school is a happy and exciting place in which to learn. We respect and care for each other and have high expectations of what we can achieve. We plan opportunities for reflection and encourage children’s sense of awe and wonder throughout the curriculum.

We believe that people learn best in different ways. At our school we provide a rich and varied learning environment that allows children to develop their skills and abilities to their full potential.

Through our teaching we aim to:

  • enable children to become confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners;

  • foster children’s self-esteem and help them build positive relationships with other people;

  • develop children’s self-respect and encourage children to respect the ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others;

  • show respect for all cultures and, in so doing, to promote positive attitudes towards other people;

  • enable children to understand their community and help them feel valued as part of this community;

  • help children grow into reliable, independent and positive citizens;

  • encourage children to reflect upon their learning;

  • give children the opportunity to enjoy the awe and wonder of learning.
