At Storrington primary school, we want all learners to SHINE, be safe, happy, independent, never give up and excel. We provide opportunities for our children to develop as creative, confident and caring learners and members of our community. Through our values led curriculum and rights respecting approach we work together to ensure children are prepared for their next stages of life in modern Britain.
Excellent outcomes for all will be planned using the national curriculum and early years foundation stage curriculum as a basis. From this all adults will deliver meaningful learning reflecting the needs of the community. Learning outcomes will demonstrate planned use of school grounds the local environment, and our society. Activities will be planned that develop thinking and enquiry and respond to the needs of the child in fulfilling the next step forward in their development. Forest school, outdoor learning and sport play an important role in the delivery of curriculum learning and emotional well being. This is particularly effective for children with additional needs in developing the first hand experiences and skills they will need for the future.
A primary focus of our curriculum is to raise aspirations for all children and encourage pride in their learning leading to excellent outcomes. All learners including those in receipt of pupil premium or with additional needs will have specifically planned opportunities to ensure progress. Targeted support and intervention will support learners to feel confident in class in embedding the important knowledge they need in order for connections in learning to be made. Children will be fully involved in their learning through planned opportunities for reflection and review. Planning must support the development of the school’s core values; developing children who SHINE (safe, happy, independent, never give up and excel).
As a result of these quality experiences, learning will promote knowledge and understanding and the development of appropriate skills.
The school works hard to develop children’s love of reading, quality texts are planned from and linked to other texts to support learning and bring topics alive.
Equality and diversity in our curriculum is of the highest priority as we work to decolonise and diversify our curriculum . Opportunities are planned to see learning from different perspectives and to learn and grow from this and create a sense of belonging for all.
