Our school aims to ensure that each and every child receives nothing short of the BEST: the BEST quality learning environment which is symbolised by high expectations for every child within the happiest of school environments; the BEST challenging and engaging curriculum for all; the BEST teaching which promotes long-lasting learning and will lead to the very BEST academic and social outcomes for every child.
We aim to provide the BEST Learning Environment which promotes aspiration!
Each child will have access to the most amazing learning environment; one which is underpinned by high expectations and challenge for all and one where failure is seen as essential for learning. Children understand that intelligence can grow and with practice, patience, praise and effort anyone can achieve within the happiest of school environments.
We aim to deliver the BEST Engaging and Challenging Curriculum!
Every member of our school community has the very highest academic and social expectations for every child. Our curriculum:
Fosters ambition and an intrinsic desire to achieve within our learners by ensuring every child has the skills and knowledge they need to succeed across a range of subjects;
Embeds core moral values which leads to a strong social conscience;
Creates a positive ‘can do’ attitude towards learning so that every child believes that they can learn.
In order to enable all of our learners to develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, make links within and across the curriculum as well as foster an intrinsic desire to achieve based on a genuine desire to learn and know more, we deliver our curriculum via an enquiry based curriculum model. Each enquiry question is bespoke and is based on either school values or academic-based drivers.
Within each enquiry, we teach a learning journey across a range of subjects in which skills and knowledge are taught progressively both within and across year groups; building on prior knowledge to ensure our learners know and remember more and become true masters of the skills and knowledge they have been taught.
Our Curriculum uses memorable learning experiences to develop cultural capital as part of a rich, relevant and child-centred curriculum which has the principles of high-quality reading, writing, maths are embedded throughout.
