The Governing Body at Clara Grant Primary School aims to provide for both pupils and staff a working environment in which all individuals are valued. We aim to give equal access to the curriculum so that all pupils receive a broad and balanced education which meets their individual needs as well as taking the wider expectations of society into account. We have high expectations of all children, whatever their starting points, to develop and achieve to at least the average of any similar child in the country. Our intent is to create independent learners through a combination of practical learning experiences and more structured teacher directed sessions. We believe in taking our children out of school on as many trips and visits as possible to enhance their learning.
In order for our pupils to learn successfully we believe that:
All pupils must be treated equally.
There must be consistent expectations of behaviour in order to create a secure environment in which all pupils learn.
Pupils should be made to feel confident about themselves as learners and feel that their contribution is valued.
Pupils need to be encouraged to think for themselves.
Pupils need to be able to work with others so that they develop personal and social skills including an awareness of their own views and the needs of others.
The School will deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that takes into account children’s spiritual and moral development.
There should be a partnership between the school, home and the community.
