Stower Provost Community School has a reputation for being committed to developing children's potential through the curriculum, extra curricular activities and the dedication and support of all staff in the school.
Children's potential is achieved when they are stimulated, enthusiastic and motivated. As a staff we aim to create an atmosphere where children have a structure within which to learn effectively and to achieve high standards in all areas of the curriculum.
We also expect the children to develop consideration and respect for others, and to be polite and courteous to everyone within the school.
- to maintain a happy, secure and stimulating environment in which pupils feel confident and eager to learn;
- to show high expectations, to recognise achievements and to celebrate successes whether they be individual, as a school or as a community;
- to enhance and fulfil every pupils’ potential;
- to develop pupils’ self-discipline and independence;
- to encourage pupils to treat each other, visitors and the community with respect and tolerance, showing responsible attitudes towards others and towards their environment;
We follow the National Curriculum and the children enjoy a balanced and broad programme of learning throughout the school. We recognise that children learn best in different ways and we aim to ensure that all our children experience as wide a range of stimuli and learning styles as possible. Excellence and enjoyment is our aim.
In Reception, Yr 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1) we are particularly proud of our “Learning Launch Pad” where children are encouraged to develop their independent learning skills using a rich variety of play experiences. This introduces them to a huge range of important educational experiences and life skills, which we feel are essential in providing each child with a well rounded learning experience, developing self confidence, self motivation, independence and autonomy. It’s also lots of fun!
In Key Stage 2 (years 3-6) we have introduced interactive white boards which are very popular with the children and teachers. We are developing our ICT suite and expanding the library to widen opportunities for independent learning and research.
Being a non-denominational community school we are particularly well placed to ensure that our children receive a full understanding of the multi-cultural nature of today’s society, however, we also have strong links with our local community church. We respect the right of parents to withdraw their children from any aspect of the religious education curriculum.
Stower Provost School likes to get to know all children as early as it can. The term before the child starts school he/she will be invited to join the reception class for several sessions. The reception teacher and the Head Teacher will talk to parents about school and any worries they may have.
Stower Provost School also runs a thriving pre-school club, known as the PIP club, for children of 3 years and over who will be joining our school. The purpose of this club is for the children to get to know the infant teachers, the children already in school and to familiarise themselves with the classrooms and some of the activities, making the transition from home to school as smooth as possible.
Stower Vale Pre-School is a community group with charitable status, owned and run by the parents attending the group. It is located on our school site, which we feel has many benefits for both the pre-school and the school.
