At Castlechurch Primary School our children develop a love of learning, are well motivated, enjoy themselves and take a pride in their school. We have an atmosphere of natural affection, mutual respect and an ordered way of life. We value academic and personal success and all pupils are encouraged to fulfil their potential and develop their diverse range of talents. High esteem is encouraged, high expectations, standards and values are fostered and progress and achievement are positively monitored and celebrated.
Our curriculum, whilst complying with National Curriculum, provides exciting and challenging learning opportunities steeped in real life experiences. We seek to provide every opportunity for children to apply English and Maths skill across their learning using Information technology (IT) skills, co-operative group work and presentation skills. We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards and make maximum progress in relation to their prior learning. We want children to enjoy acquiring and using knowledge and skills, to question and explore, to acquire positive attitudes, behaviour and personal beliefs and gain independence to become lifelong learners.
Our talented, caring staff have high expectations and work hard to build strong partnerships with parents and families. We believe that where that partnership is strong and supportive all our pupils flourish. High standards can best be achieved through sound partnership between pupils, parents, staff, governors and community.
The development of respect for religious and moral values and cultural diversity is promoted as is the ability to reflect upon the world, expressing thoughts and feelings. We want all children to acquire a sense of self-worth, belonging and pride. We aim to create an environment where they are happy to be British and will then grow into responsible, thoughtful and positive members of society.
