Limitless vision for our school and our pupils
We aim for success with a curriculum which is designed to excite, motivate, challenge and is personalised to meet children’s needs. This is designed in such a way to capture the children’s interest and engagement in learning.
We have worked hard to ensure our curriculum sparks imagination, is innovate and encourages children to be independent learners. Subsequently, capturing their interests and stimulating their desire to learn.
We aim to create a learning environment which is safe, stimulating and ensures children are ready to learn. Every classroom has a reflection area where the children can, play, learn and investigate. These link to the current topic being studied.
As a school, we aim for all children to be resilient learners. We teach and promote Growth Mindset based on the work of Professor Carol Dweck. This is to encourage the children as learners to be open to new experiences and not to be afraid to try and fail. We want children to embrace challenge and see effort as the path to success.
A picture of the ‘Learning Pit’ is displayed in every classroom and is a visual aid for the children to describe their learning journeys throughout the day. We want the children to understand that it is okay to be stuck, and that some of their best learning is done when they find things the hardest.
As a school, we believe successful individuals love learning, value effort and persist in the face of obstacles.
We want our children to develop a growth mindset and believe that anything is possible with the right attitude to learning. We believe passionately that every child can succeed and flourish and achieve their potential.
We uphold the Christian Values which are displayed around our school and on banners in our school hall which we made with the children of Westleigh Methodist. These are:
Peace and forgiveness
Through day to day teaching, assemblies and our ethos we share and encourage children to follow our Christian Values.
