“Everyone working together for life-long learning”
Governor Curriculum Statement
- Every child is motivated to become a creative, independent learner who will reach their full potential.
- Every child has the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding to use existing and new innovations.
- Every child develops the necessary attributes to participate as a confident and responsible citizen in our ever changing global community.
- We under pin learning by the five R’s
Never give up; set targets and practise; have a positive attitude; find interest in what you do.
Listen to different opinions; learn from mistakes; ask why; stay calm.
Learn in different ways; use imagination; look at other options; ask good questions; make links; gather evidence.
Have a go; don’t be afraid to be wrong; get started; choose a method.
Work effectively as part of a team; know right from wrong; be a good listener; show empathy; share and give reasons.
Our National Curriculum subjects are planned to enable us to teach them through an exciting thematic approach. Pupils are encouraged to transfer the skills and knowledge gained in one subject and apply them to another. Pupils are invited to contribute to the content of every theme and evaluate their own learning. The school promotes learning through the teaching of the 5R’s; Resilience, Reflection, Resourcefulness, Risk Taking and Relationships.
Whole School Themes and Special Days
A series of subject ‘theme days’ take place during the academic year which are either linked to current issues or guided by the subject co-ordinator. This enables us to look at current issues; religions; famous people; artists etc. These days also provided us with a great opportunity to develop cross curricular work; enter competitions; develop projects and work with external providers (such as Waitrose or Local Theatres); celebrating religious festivals; national days of interest or developing topics suggested by the pupils via the School Council.
We regularly hold special days to reflect real time/life events, invite visitors to our classes/assemblies and participate in visits.
We strongly believe that children are learners both in and out of school. Therefore we encourage learning at home; organise a range of experiences including visits to places of educational interest, making use of our two minibuses; and invite specialists into school. We offer extra curricular activities and children in year 4 and year 6 participate in residential trips.
