All pupils at Fellside Community Primary School have access to a broad, balanced and curriculum which is relevant to 21st century life and which encourages children to become lifelong learners. Differentiated to meet individual needs, we seek to ensure that all children are ‘secondary ready’ when they leave our school at the end of Year 6. Equipping our children with the skills and knowledge to innovate and meet future challenges underpins much of what we do. Enriching the curriculum with first hand experiences, pertinent educational visits and expert visitors further brings learning to life for Fellside children.
Through the development of our curriculum, we seek
- To create a lively stimulating school where every individual is encouraged to maximise their opportunities for intellectual, moral, spiritual, physical, aesthetic and social development.
- To support pupils in order to achieve high academic and personal standards.
- To help pupils to develop lively, enquiring minds with the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves successfully to tasks, problem solving activities and physical skills.
- To help pupils to understand the world in which they live and to develop the ability to contribute as a member of a co-operative group and to recognise their responsibility within a community.
- To help pupils to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to adult life, at home, at work, at leisure and as consumers and citizens in order to achieve maximum potential.
- To encourage the pupil to acquire values, attitudes and concepts which enable the individual to adapt to life in a fast changing world.
- To encourage a respect for all and an understanding of various religions and cultures present in our modern society.
