We have three main intentions when it comes to measuring the impact of our curriculum.
Intention 1: To develop our learner’s learning.
We strive to ensure that our children’s attainment in core and foundation subjects is in line with or exceeding their age-related expectations when we consider the varied starting points of children. We measure this carefully using a range of materials which is supported by what children have learned and what learning they have retained.
We intend that the impact is that children will be academically and physically prepared for the next phase of their education and that they develop learning behaviours so they don’t give up, are highly motivated to succeed and achieve, and are equipped with all the personal skills to do this.
Intention 2: To develop the child as a ‘whole’.
The impact will be that our learners will have fully rounded individuals with a clear understanding of complex values like respect, equality, friendship, trust and many others.
Only by really learning what these mean will our learners be able to develop a character that prepares them for living in the community, demonstrating tolerance and equality. We measure this not just by the work our children produce, but in the behaviours we see each and every day in all learners on the playground, in the corridor, and in the different roles we give them. The impact of this intention is seen in the daily interaction of all members of our school community.
Intention 3: To develop the moral compass of our learners.
Our aspiration is that our learners will be motivated by a strong personal sense of morality. They will make decisions for the right reasons and in the best interests of their community. They will be able to decide what is right and what is wrong, and will be resilient to the influence of others. They will go out into the world and make a difference in their own life and to others. Our learners will be the owners of their own destinies.
