St Weonards Primary School 2015 Brochure
Aims and Ethos
We seek to ensure that all children in our school develop their academic, social and personal potential to the full and grow into competent, tolerant adults who can work together co-operatively, manage their own lives and play their full part as responsible citizens and life-long learners.
St Weonards is a ‘values’ based school. We follow a programme through which, children and adults are inspired to choose their own positive personal, social, moral, cultural and spiritual values and to be aware of ways for developing and deepening them as members of the global as well as their local community.
“It is very much a family feel school. The children have confidence to talk to others (e.g. grown- ups). I always see happy little faces when I drop my children off at school and pick them up at the end of the day. “
“Children seem happy and there is a great atmosphere in the school.”
“My children are happy at school. The come home from school & explain in full what they’ve been doing.”
Our curriculum is a continually evolving blend of learning experiences, designed to develop the fundamental skills, which children need to succeed. The school curriculum is aimed to be relevant, interesting and engaging. A broad, balanced and relevant skills based education is offered to all the pupils, providing a wide range of experiences to meet their personalised needs. The core subjects and foundation subjects are all taught through a cross-curricular approach where it enhances learning or as discrete subjects. Our curriculum is further enriched by themed weeks which have been proposed by the children and in which they work collaboratively on a whole school topic. The school meets the requirements of the National Curriculum for Years 1 to 6, and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum for pupils in Reception.
“Because it is a small school, staff have time to teach individuals when they need extra help.”
“It is lovely to have two happy children who enjoy going to school and that they feel included and safe at their school.”
