At Shaldon Primary School we recognise that all pupils have learning strengths and that we must develop their skills and personal qualities which can be applied across the curriculum inside and outside the classroom.
We believe that pupil learning is directly linked to teacher learning and a high priority is given to developing and extending the knowledge of all the adults in the school. We want to keep up to date with the latest research on how pupils learn and how classroom practice can be made even more effective. We have learnt that the curriculum must be real and exciting and that we must make learning an enjoyable and lively experience. We know that setting high expectations offers learners opportunities to succeed academically, socially, culturally, spiritually and physically.
We want to build on what learners already know and structure our lessons so that children understand what is being learnt, how and why. We also want to involve pupils in the assessment of their learning. Achievement in learning for us goes beyond the academic and extends to musical, physical, interpersonal and intrapersonal learning.
