We understand the importance of the home school relationship and hold regular community activities as part of our core educational offer. Parents and carers enjoy being involved with the many projects we host and we have a high level of participation in all community activities. Our teachers hold termly community events as part of their curriculum.
We firmly believe that providing an engaging, creative and stimulating curriculum has a positive effect on the children’s motivations, aspirations and achievements across all curriculum areas. As such children are, given the opportunity to shape and design their own curriculum topics, encouraged to take risks and try new things, taught to listen and work as part of a team and understand the importance of their learning.
Our achievements have been recognised through many awards over the last few years. In 2009 we became a National School of Creativity, one of 56 schools to be chosen to receive extra funding to support the development of creative teaching and learning. In 2011, we were awarded the Times Educational Supplement, Outstanding Primary of the Year, a national award recognising the work we have been doing to develop an inspirational curriculum, bring our wider school community closer to the children’s learning and for our excellent support for children with special educational needs. Already this year, we have become a regional Arts Connect Hub school with a responsibility to share excellence in arts education with other schools across Telford. We have recently become one of a small number of schools to be chosen to host ‘In Harmony’, a music and community programme that means every child will be participating in learning a musical instrument over the next three years.
