On behalf of the staff, governors and children of Curledge Street School, welcome to our school community.

We hope that this website will give you a flavour of our school. It will give you information on the curriculum, the aims of the school and the activities which happen within it.

We consider that, despite its size, Curledge Street is a close-knit community in which everyone is encouraged to respect each other and the things around them. These expectations are at the heart of our community charter.

We aim to make our school an open, friendly and happy place where everybody works together to make the most of what they have in an environment where they can achieve their best in all that they do.

We are proud of the achievements of our children whether those achievements are academic, physical, social or creative.

The School Councillors represent the views of their fellow pupils and we take their views very seriously.

As parents, you form a very important part of part of our community and we welcome visits from you. We look forward to working with you in a trusting, positive and mutually supportive relationship.

We want our children to be enthusiastic learners, enjoying their time at school, and hope that you will work together with us to achieve this aim.

The Headteacher

At Curledge Street Primary School we aim to . . .

  • Make a safe environment where we all feel confident enough to take risks and voice our own opinions.
  • Develop our independence as we try to reflect on our work and become enquiring learners.
  • Encourage a growing awareness of the beliefs and values of others and to develop the confidence to make our own choices.
  • Take pride in our achievements and celebrate our successes, recognising and rewarding individual strengths, talents, similarities and differences.
  • Be a community where everyone is encouraged to listen actively and is given opportunities to be listened to.
  • Create a school where all people can enjoy learning and learn from each other no matter what their age.
  • Work together in a community where we all have rights and responsibilities and a part to play.
  • Encourage a community where respect for ourselves and others, honesty, openness and trust are important.
  • Look after our school environment and the wider world around us.
  • Offer a stimulating, interesting and challenging curriculum.
  • The Curriculum

    Curledge Street Primary School provides the full National Curriculum. We ensure that the children experience a broad and balanced curriculum to fit their needs, making links where appropriate across the subject areas.

    Within the Foundation Stage (Nursery & Reception) the curriculum consists of six areas of learning:

    • Knowledge and Understanding of the World
    • Communication, Language & Literacy
    • Mathematical development
    • Creative Development
    • Physical Development
    • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

    At Key Stage 1 & 2 the curriculum consists of five core subjects:

    • English
    • Mathematics
    • Science
    • Information Communication Technology (ICT)
    • Religious Education (RE)

    The other subjects taught are:

    • Physical Education (PE)
    • Geography
    • History
    • Art
    • Design & Technology (DT)
    • Music
    • Personal, Social, Health and Moral Education

    All our children are special and have a valuable contribution to make to our school community.

    At some point in their school life many children require support for their learning. This may be for emotional, academic or social needs. We try to identify and support these children as early as possible. We value parents’ contributions to their children’s education and keep them informed of any concerns we may have.

    Children who have particular talents or abilities are also recognised and all children’s achievements are celebrated.

    Additional help for your child may include:

    • Being given different or more challenging work in the classroom.
    • A specially designed individual or group learning programme (IEP).
    • Being taught individually or in a small group outside the classroom.
    • Being given additional support within the classroom.
    • Referral to outside agencies, e.g. Speech Therapist, Educational Psychologist.
    • Intervention schemes such as ELS (Early Literacy Support) and Springboard Maths.

    Working towards the home/school partnership the school aims to:

    • Be open and welcoming, and offer opportunities for family members and carers to become involved in the daily life of the school and to participate in their child's education.
    • Care for your child's safety and well-being while at school.
    • Keep you informed about general school matters and, in particular, about your child's progress e.g. informal meetings at mutually agreed times throughout the year, curriculum sharing evenings, parent consulation meetings, written end of year reports with an opportunity for a follow up meeting.
    • Provide each child with a broad and balanced education relevant to their needs.

    School hopes family members and carers will:

    • Send their child to school regularly and on time, wearing the correct uniform.
    • Promote a respectful attitude towards others and support the school's behaviour policy.
    • Support their child wherever they can so that their child gets the best from their work time in school e.g. attend Parents' Evenings; give encouragement with homework.
    • Let the school know of any concerns that might affect their child's work or behaviour.

    Quotes from pupils..

    The Huff 'n' Puff equipment that the school has introduced means that children can have fun while being healthy.

    I like our school because we have considerate teachers and they make the school a lively and happy place to be.

    We have good hard-working teachers, who always help no matter what.

    We've got Huff 'n' Puff and a swimming pool to use and a BIG playground.

    There are lots of kind people at Curledge Street. It is a big school with lots of classes, but the children here are really friendly.
