At Grove Primary School and Nursery we aim to be: skilled readers, confident writers, mathematicians, scientists, artists, historians, geographers, musicians, linguists, athletes, designers, inclusive and diverse. We want our children to have no limits to what their ambitions are and want them to embody our core school values.
We all believe that we can: “Bring Out the Best in Everyone”.
Our curriculum is carefully crafted so that our children develop their academic, social and cultural capital. As a staff team, we take great care to ensure that this curriculum is adapted to meet the needs of all our learners. Sequences of learning are tailored to ensure that key skills and knowledge are covered through creative and engaging learning opportunities.
Our curriculum promotes curiosity and a love and thirst for learning. It is ambitious and empowers our children to become independent and resilient. We strive for academic excellence and want our children to have high aspirations. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions will be.
We encourage our children to celebrate success and build on disappointment in order to develop resilience. We want to equip them with not only the minimum statutory requirements of the National Curriculum but to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Having a talent in the subject alone is not enough. Many employees don’t actually work entirely on their own, so it is essential for us to develop excellent communication, cooperation and teamwork skills.
Inspiring the children to show respect for other people, property and the natural world, ensures that they show kindness. We achieve this by providing a strong PSHE curriculum, with British Values and our school values placed at the heart of everything we do. We enrich their time in our school with memorable, unforgettable experiences and provide opportunities which are normally out of reach. We firmly believe that it is not just about what happens in the classroom, it is about the added value we offer to really inspire our children.
Every half term, we update our families with what their child will be up to in their lessons and how to support at home. Please see your child's class page for the most up to date curriculum information.
