In partnership with our families, we are committed to ensure that all our children feel safe, included and valued in all aspects of school life.
With a strong focus on positive values and social, emotional aspects of learning, and by providing an enriched and meaningful curriculum, we want to nurture and inspire our children to learn, so they grow and succeed as resilient, curious, confident and resourceful individuals.
To achieve this aim, the school will...
...bring the best out of our children by:
~ involving them in their own learning
~ helping them know what they can do and what they need to learn next
~ using different styles of teaching to ensure learning is always interesting, engaging and fun
~ providing our children with a safe and fun environment to learn about nature and the world around them
~ listening to the children and responding flexibly so those different abilities can all work at an appropriate pace and to their potential
~ encouraging the children to ask questions
~ helping the children to understand and adopt a healthy physically active and environmentally friendly lifestyle
...ensure our children have a fulfilling time at Whitnash Primary by:
~ making sure they are happy and safe
~ nurturing their self esteem and confidence
~ teaching them the importance of respecting and valuing other people and their environment including good behaviour and politeness
~ seizing opportunities beyond the national curriculum to enhance our children's development
~ enhancing pupils' knowledge of the environment and thereby fostering an awareness of the need to conserve and care for its resources
..prepare our children as fully as possible for the next stage of their lives so that, when they leave us they:
~ have reached their academic and all-round potential
~ are eager to keep on learning
~ are inquisitive about their world
~ are confident in their relations with other people
~ are willing and able to make a positive contribution
