The National Curriculum
Cheveley CoE Primary School
Our Curriculum Aims:
At Cheveley Primary School, we strive to ensure children:
1. Become effective learners
We encourage our children to be curious, to ask questions and be resourceful and independent in their learning. We provide many opportunities for independent thinking and for them to apply their skills whilst developing collaborative learning. The children become resilient and persistent and they learn to take risks and develop their perseverance.
2. Attain the skills, knowledge and understanding which provide the essential preparation for the next stage in their school life
We aim to ensure that children have a love of reading and learning, have high attainment across all areas of the curriculum and are well prepared for the next stage of their education. We have a passion for the Arts at Cheveley Primary and we offer a broad, cultural education for our children. We believe that competition and sportsmanship are important and we offer many opportunities for children to represent the school and develop their confidence.
3. Foster a positive and caring attitude towards others
We aim to develop an environment where children will experience a sense of rights and responsibilities and involvement in decision making. We believe in truth, justice, equality and that children have a sense of right and wrong. They will experience how our school is a central part of the local community and they will develop a sense of national and global perspective; developing their horizons and understanding of a variety of lifestyles.
4. Feel secure and live a healthy and safe life
We aim to support children to make good choices about physical health and diet and understand how to face the risks and challenges which arise as a normal part of living. We value the environment and feel passionately about careful management of our environment.
