Welcome to the Spring Term!

Marsh Infant and Nursery School


The Curriculum at Marsh Infant and Nursery School


Our curriculum is regularly reviewed to support the interests and needs of our children, the curriculum endeavours to support the understanding of our core values and fulfils our vision.


Marsh Infant and Nursery School is a fun, creative and inspiring school where the children are supported to play together, where they feel like they belong so that they are happy to come to school and learn. Best practice from the Early Years curriculum has encouraged us to bring continuous provision into Year One where the children enjoy learning and accessing the Year One curriculum through play and well planned group activities.


From their different starting points all children will make good progress socially, emotionally, physically and academically. Teachers will adapt plans and activities to make sure that knowledge, understanding and skills will be secured and embedded. Lessons are prepared so that children are motivated to learn and achieve their potential in readiness for the next stage in their educational journey. They will have sound communication skills, both written and verbal, and will listen respectfully and with tolerance to the views of others. They will demonstrate emotional resilience and self-belief in their own abilities and when they encounter challenge. They will be kind, respectful and honest, demonstrate inclusive attitudes and have a sense of their role in our wider society. Our children will take pride in all that they do, always striving to do their best.

The following aspects are an important part of our curriculum here at Marsh School:

  • Our local area and our knowledge of where we live, developing an awareness of the world beyond High Wycombe and our responsibilities as global citizens
  • The teaching of our core values, which complement fundamental British values
  •  Teaching children to keep themselves safe and providing them with tools to manage their own well-being
