School Vision and Values
Shotton Primary School is a happy, safe environment for all children and staff, where everyone is respected and valued.
We treat each other with honesty, fairness and compassion, through effective communication and positive, trusting relationships with all of our community.
Our School Curriculum
At Shotton Primary, our school curriculum has been carefully developed to meet the needs of our children. It is broad and balanced, following the statutory guidance from the National Curriculum (https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum#programmes-of-study-by-subject) and the Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. It develops children’s progressive knowledge and skills across the curriculum and develops their health and well-being to prepare them for the future as well as widen their cultural capital.
At Shotton Primary:
Our Curriculum will develop children’s understanding of both local and world history and geography, developing a sense of place and time.
We will raise children’s awareness of employment opportunities and possibilities within the local community and beyond.
We will provide a variety of rich and engaging experiences beyond the classroom, including accessing local resources and public places to enhance pupils’ learning further.
We will educate our children to help them to become responsible citizens.
We will teach the children the knowledge and skills required to keep them safe in the local area and beyond.
We will value and promote respect of a range of cultures and religions that reflects the diversity of modern Britain, teaching our children the importance of equality through our school provision.
We will educate our children to know that they are responsible to uphold the five British values.
At Shotton Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and talents and the children who are learning English as an additional language. The school curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report.
