Objective

A Shared Ethos ::


We apply strong universal values to everything we do in school.

• Listening to pupils is the key to any good school
• Involving them in some decision-making will encourage their social development as future citizens
• We expect excellent behaviour from everyone in school, positive rewards and fairly applied sanctions are used to promote this.
• A caring attitude towards others leads to everyone's feelings and beliefs being respected.
• Our daily act of collective worship helps our children to grow socially, morally, culturally and spiritually
• Regular praise and a feeling of security help to develop self-esteem and an open and questioning mind.
• Curiosity, perseverance and a prevailing "can do" attitude helps children to develop independence in their learning.
• Play is an important element of our curriculum which encourages deep learning & fosters greater enjoyment of school life for children and staff
• We aim to be a healthy school in our food and drink routines and the provision of regular physical activity

Teaching & Learning ::


Our core purpose is to provide high quality Teaching and Learning. Children learn in many different ways so we aim to teach using many different styles :

• We encourage children to have a growing awareness of their own learning through widespread use of the Building Learning Power framework and by applying the principles of Assessment for Learning within the classroom
• We use the Critical Skills Programme to develop a whole-class learning culture and use techniques within CSP to facilitate children's learning
• Children learn individually, in pairs, in small groups or as a whole class
• We maximise direct first hand learning whenever possible including our regular WOW events
• The classroom is silent, quiet or sometimes very noisy!
• The teacher talks, demonstrates, listens, observes, guides, assesses and disciplines.
• We employ a carefully chosen range of teaching styles and classroom organisation depending on the learning objectives of the lesson.
• We acknowledge that pupils may have a preference for visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learning styles and plans to use all of these approaches
• The regular use of ICT enables our pupils to develop as life-long learners
• Dedicated staff are encouraged to constantly develop their teaching expertise and are empowered to take risks in the classroom to ensure the curriculum is exciting for children.
