Our aim at Greswold Primary School is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that equips them for today and tomorrow. Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our diverse school community. Thus, we will develop outward looking pupils who are able to engage in learning about themselves and have an understanding of the wider world and its cultures.
Our curriculum is bespoke to the needs of the pupils at Greswold and constantly evolving to respond to the needs of learners and their interests by enhancing learning experiences and raising awareness from the local area to national and global arenas. It not only focusses on appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum, but also recognises children’s prior learning, develops individual and collaborative learning experiences, provides challenges that take them beyond the classroom, a positive growth mind set and allows the children to develop interpersonal skills to become creative, critical thinkers.
We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in pupils' lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. We use our Greswold Values (Belonging, Respect, Independence, Curiosity, Kindness and Success) to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.
Community involvement is an integral part of our curriculum, inviting families and visitors to facilitate learning new skills and sharing experiences such as assemblies, celebration of Religious festivals and attending sporting events.
Children leave Greswold with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
