At Alveley Primary School and Nursery we are a team. We believe that every child should enjoy their education and be happy, healthy and safe at school. We aim to nurture unique, resilient and reflective learners through a challenging and stimulating environment.
Through a creative curriculum children are equipped with the characteristics of effective learning and skills to acquire knowledge. They flourish in their academic, social, moral and spiritual development. We celebrate the culture and heritage of every child. We promote Christian principles alongside learning and celebrating the faiths of different religions. Alveley School, set in idyllic rural surroundings, encourages an appreciation of the natural world as a source of wonder and inspiration. Children take a leading role in maintaining and improving their environment, which is promoted through our outdoor woodland learning area. We believe that effective partnerships between children, staff, parents, governors and the wider community are central to the success of our children. Our children respect themselves and others, understand their role in school and the world beyond.
Pupils are actively involved in making decisions through school council and pupil voice; leadership is encouraged through cross phase collaboration. We champion success in sport at all levels, giving a wide range of opportunity for our children to be involved in sport within the community.
Our school is a caring place where children and adults make valuable contributions and are inspired to think for themselves and feel confident to meet new challenges. It encompasses all learning styles and meets the needs of 21st Century learners. Our teaching fosters a lasting enjoyment of learning. At Alveley Primary School children are encouraged to develop into mature young adults, who uphold British Values and are prepared for an ever-changing world.
Our Curriculum Rationale
When designing our curriculum we took a number of key factors into consideration, these include:
The needs of our local area
Our attainment results
What our learners and families wanted
What was needed to support our learners to become effective contributors, responsible citizens, successful learners and confident individuals in England today
By the time our children move on to Secondary School we aim for them to have developed the following:
A Growth Mindset
Literacy and Numeracy skills
Secure in their use of technology
Good communication skills
Social Skills – including good manners
Skills for life-long learning
Strong moral values
The ability to adapt and cope with change
As a school community we reflect regularly on our curriculum and school aims to ensure we are supporting the development of these skills and qualities.
