Reaching together... stand firm in your faith, be courageous and strong - 1 Corinthians 16:13

Our Curriculum Intent, Impact and Implementation

Curriculum for Life

Reaching together with Love, Joy and Peace (Galatians 5: 22-23)


               Reaching Together to achieve our vision: INTENT


To provide a caring, Christian ethos for the school, which inspires and excites a shared enthusiasm for life and learning. This means growing in body, mind and spirit in order to flourish and experience the joy and hope of, ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10v10)


                       Reaching Together to achieve our mission: IMPLEMENTATION


Through our strong Christian ethos and focus on nine important Christian values, we are committed to providing a deeply nourishing, spiritual, ambitious and broad curriculum. Our motto, ‘Reaching together’ underpins our belief in equality of opportunity for all, where we actively endeavour to promote understanding and appreciation of our racially diverse society and give each child a special place in the world where they feel valued, essential to our community and equipped with the necessary skills to make a positive contribution. We perceive our role to be opening a ‘window on the world’, through which our pupils are actively encouraged to care for all God’s creations and to develop respect for the beliefs and cultures which enrich their everyday lives and encourage others to do likewise. We strive to eliminate inequality through our deep Christian ethos of tolerance and understanding of all groups in society, which ensures that everyone at Ivington will be treated fairly despite his or her creed, colour, disability or gender.


We ‘Start children off on the way they should go … ’through inspiring everyone to:


LOVE Jesus and each other,

APPRECIATE themselves and the gifts they have been given,

ACHIEVE their full potential ...‘so even when they are older they will not turn from it’ - Proverbs 22:


Reaching Together to achieve our aims: IMPACT

These values are at the heart of everything we do and run through our whole ethos, curriculum, and school life to ensure pupils leave Ivington Church of England Primary and Pre-School as happy, secure, caring, and responsible citizens.
