The Aims and Values of Our School
At Alderman Payne Primary School we base our curriculum on the Five Fabulous Foundations. These are;
Our primary focus is teaching children to read as this opens up the whole curriculum for them. Children who love to read are enthusiastic and interested in all aspects of the curriculum.
Our children develop pride and respect in themselves, their family, their school and their community. We teach them to value themselves and others, to be open minded, and to have the confidence to participate fully in the society.
Our children learn about the importance of good health and physical activity; how to respect themselves and others, and to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Perseverance and resilience
Through our linked curriculum, we develop learners who are resilient, and inquisitive, independent, enthusiastic and determined to improve. We teach our children that a mistake is the opportunity to learn something new. We expect all children to achieve their personal best irrespective of their starting point and celebrate this individual success. We seek to develop interpersonal skills, the ability to manage change, and a good work ethos to ensure our children achieve social & economic well being as adults, and continue with their life long learning.
The Wider World
We believe that living in a small village in the rural Fens should not be a barrier to knowing about the wider world. As a result we actively seek opportunities to enable the children to experience the wider world.
In addition, we teach our children to solve problems and recognise and assess risks, to learn to make good choices and understanding the consequences of their actions as the children progress throughout the school. We seek to develop their understanding of potential risks in the wider world and strategies to stay safe.
We want our children to ask questions and to think about why they carry out activities in school, as this helps them to have ambition for the future. Developing a love of learning and confidence underpins all that we do, in order that our children ultimately become responsible, thinking citizens in adult life.
