“Empowering everyone to achieve”
Cramlington Village Primary School offers children a lifelong love of learning which supports every child to be happy at school. All children are entitled to come to school so that they feel safe, protected and secure in terms of their physical and social and emotional well being. This enhances children’s capacities to learn and supports them to thrive.
At Cramlington Village Primary School we:
- Facilitate children to realise and achieve their fullest potential through individualised planning which is based upon children’s interests and prior achievements
- Ensure that every child can be successful
- Enable children to learn through first hand predominantly practical experiences
- Promote life skills
- Provide inspirational teaching and learning experiences
- Make a positive difference to all children
- Instil a sense of respect and kindness between all children and adults so that they can work cooperatively
- Support children to look for the best in themselves and others
- Build upon the experiences and knowledge children already have by providing a carefully structured curriculum
- Ensure that all children’s needs are met through a diverse and inclusive curriculum regardless of their gender, ability or cultural background
- Work together with parents to create a strong partnership, acknowledging the important role that parents/carers have as the child’s first and most enduring educators
- Create a safe and stimulating environment which promotes the confidence of children to become independent learners
We have developed our curriculum to be in-line with the National Curriculum as well as using strategies suggested by research centres such as the National Centre for Excellence in Mathematics. We want our children to achieve as well as, if not better than those constrained by National Frameworks.
Our vision is that all children will go on to lead happy, successful and fulfilled lives as a result of their time with us. We work hard to encourage the children to think big about what possibilities lie ahead for them.
For some children this may not mean the highest of academic achievement but will always mean trying their hardest, thriving while working towards, and achieving their personal goals, and developing social skills that show mutual respect for their peers and for adults.
Self confidence, high self esteem and strong independence are encouraged from children’s experience in the Early Years right through to their time in Year 6. They are encouraged to assume responsibilities in school and to direct the learning opportunities they receive both as individuals, as classes, and as a school body.
We also want our staff team to achieve and believe that by an atmosphere of encouragement alongside structured opportunities for training and development. We ensure that adults remain child-centred, passionate about their roles and dynamic in terms of where they take children’s learning. We are growing this culture of expectation from high aspirations and a drive from the leadership team to challenge and recognise exceptional talent at every level.
We commit to:
- Care for and educate the children in a safe and stimulating environment, ensuring that staff are passionate and inspirational in their approach to teaching and facilitating learning
- Challenge the children through a range of planned purposeful activities that nurture individuals to develop at their own rate of progress
- Communicate well with parents, carers and visitors, demonstrating what we understand to be good practice in all we do, listening and valuing opinions of others, while sharing our professional opinions
- Coordinate our human and physical resources to be able to develop excellent practice in our care and education of children
- Cooperate within our organisation and with external agencies in all we do, when it is deemed to benefit children, either in the short term or long term or in both
- Create the right conditions for children at our school to meet or exceed levels of attainment in comparison to similar schools elsewhere
