Overall we seek for pupils to have a ‘Joy for Learning’ within a wider ethos of ‘To live, life, life in all its fullness’ John 10:10
At Wendron CofE VA Primary School this statement sets out the principles underpinning the curriculum and reflects the school’s commitment to developing all aspects of pupils’ lives.
At Wendron CofE VA Primary School we aim for our children to:
- Develop inquisitive minds, a spirit of curiosity and a joy for learning
- Be equipped with the skills to fully participate in an ever changing world
- Be respectful and productive members of the community
- Have high expectations and self-belief
- Reflect on their learning and seek to extend themselves mentally, physically and spiritually
- Uphold the Christian ethos of the school whilst respecting their own cultures and beliefs and those of other people
- Persevere and learn from their mistakes
- Develop an understanding and respect for the environment and God’s creation
- Have the courage and confidence to take calculated risks
This is the philosophy of how we want to work and learn. These aims underpin all of the learning that takes place in our school. It is a curriculum founded upon the development of the child; their EQ, their values, their well-being, their communication, their problem solving, their motivation and their skills to learn. This primary education will set them up for the next stage in their education and onwards to be a secure and successful adult.
All children need to have the following to achieve these:
- People who care for and guide them
- Experiences to learn from
- Opportunities to be challenged
When a child leaves Wendron School they will have had these. The evidence will be in talking to the children, in their work and in their attitudes. For each subject area we are aiming for pupils to become competent and confident in using and applying the skills of that particular subject, have a good knowledge base and approach the subject with a positive and affirming attitude for success. Many of the skills are transferable between the subject areas. For example research skills in history or science. Equally we seek to promote standards of reading, writing and speaking and listening across the curriculum as well as solving mathematical problems within a foundation topic area.
