Alexandra Primary: Vision Statement
Our aim is to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world. To create learners who can reflect, question, wonder, critically think, connect, be creative, be self-aware and be determined.
We instil the belief that every child can achieve. That anything is possible and their dreams have no limits.
We provide opportunities that both connect with their roots in their local landscape and expand their horizons through learning about the wider world. These experiences ignite ambitions and passions that lead them on to explore hobbies and careers in life after Alexandra Primary School.
At Alexandra, we believe that every child can achieve and provide the environment to facilitate this by removing barriers to learning, whether this is educational, emotional or financial. Our aim is to nurture children who are able to achieve, during their time at Alexandra and beyond.
The support of parents and carers is crucial to a child’s education. At Alexandra we work in partnership with parents, carers and the local community and welcome their involvement.
We teach a skills based curriculum, using content as the vehicle to develop and practise these skills and develop knowledge in different contexts.
The development of communication skills is a fundamental component of the curriculum. We teach children the power of their voice and that their questions are worth asking. Collaborative learning runs through the curriculum, in class and across year groups.
We create an environment where children are shown that effort pays off and making mistakes is the path to greater knowledge. Challenge is met with resilience and children are committed to their learning.
We promote self – confidence, nurturing an optimistic outlook where children believe in themselves. We nurture emotional intelligence and teach humility, respect, sensitivity and tolerance to wider issues and global concerns.
We aim to nurture children who are capable of doing new things – who are creative, innovative and discoverers.
Our school promotes a lifelong love of learning. We provide experiences that our children may not access elsewhere, showing them the joy of trying new things, discovering new knowledge and skills.
Creativity lies at the heart of the curriculum. We bring knowledge to life through hands on experiences, making links across subject areas and learning in different forms. Our children learn with enthusiasm and zest.
We celebrate learning – the achievement and the effort – and value each child’s individual journey.
