|"To go further than I thought. To run faster than I hoped. To reach higher than I dreamed. To become the person I need to be."|
At Belvoirdale Primary school we want our children to be both individually and
collectively successful. We realise that our main purpose is to develop their
academic abilities: to be numerate, literate and access, through a cross curricular
approach, all areas of the National curriculum; to be able to communicate clearly and
confidently in a range of medias including I.C.T.
We also believe it is our role to develop their personal qualities: to be independent, resourceful, self-disciplined, hard working, confident, creative and persevering. We want them to show ambition to achieve their full potential and to realise what their potential is: to be self-confident and proud of their achievements and their attributes.
Underpinning this is the need to develop their sense of morality, sportsmanship and respect for all: to know the difference between right and wrong and to develop the strength to choose the correct action in terms of bullying, stealing, cruelty and dishonesty. We want each child to develop a sense of awareness of themselves as an individual; to be sensitive to their own and others thoughts, feelings and emotions and to be developing a sense of their identity in society.
As children leave Belvoirdale Primary School, they will:-
- Achieve their potential, both individually and as part of a team.
- Be literate, numerate and communicative whilst being confident in the application of these skills across the whole curriculum, to the best of their ability.
- Understand and be able to apply I.C.T. skills across the whole curriculum in a confident manner that aids learning.
- Have developed an awareness of the wider world through a broad curriculum.
- Have learnt to concentrate, listen and respond positively to their learning.
- Be an independent learner, ready to accept challenges and think creatively, whilst being encouraged to take sensible risks and problem solve.
- Feel pride in themselves and their work, be aware of their potential and have a positive outlook on life and how to improve.
- Be cheerful, confident and enjoy learning.
- Show consideration and respect for others, their property, their beliefs and feelings.
- Be punctual, polite, well mannered, enthusiastic and motivated and
make informed decisions based on these.
- Value education, experiences and the opportunities they offer.
