Our Curriculum

At South Normanton Nursery School, we are committed to high quality Early Years provision and practice. We have a simple long term goal which is for the children who attend our setting to contribute to the community and further out into the world, throughout their lives in a positive and inspiring way.


Our curriculum acknowledges that in order for our children to be able to do this they need to be; effective and skilful communicators; have creative and enquiring minds; be respectful of others whilst knowing their rights and have good emotional well-being.


Our intent is to provide a curriculum that develops all these attributes, enabling every child to succeed.


At South Normanton Nursery School our provision reflects our vision for learning and is planned to offer rich, enjoyable and meaningful experiences for all children. Our intention is for all children to learn through a mixture of hands on experiences, supported through highly skilled and caring adults. The curriculum is delivered through the many experiences provided, the resources and the interactions that are built into play and the occasions of 'direct teaching' that take place throughout the day, everyday.


At South Normanton Nursery School we recognise the importance of outdoor learning. We are dedicated to ensuring that all children have an environment which encourages curious and investigative minds; encourages a love of the natural world and a respect for the world that we live in. 


Our children get to access Forest Schools each Friday, where they get to learn with 'Forest Faith'. This contributes towards ensuring that our aims are met, as well as developing children's emotional well being. We have recognised the impact these sessions have on our children and we are currently developing an area which children can access throughout the week.
