Teaching, Learning and the Curriculum
At Parkhead Community Primary School we are committed to providing an enjoyable, inclusive, stimulating and challenging curriculum which inspires a love of learning and ensures that every child is challenged to be the best they can be. We place a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy to ensure our children are highly literate and numerate in order to realise their potential in life and to succeed in the next stage of school. We support all pupils to develop reading, writing and strong numeracy skills needed to succeed in both education and the world of work.
Our curriculum provides rich experiences and deep learning opportunities allowing all children to meet their full potential and develop the requisite skills to be successful, independent, resilient and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education and their future lives in an everchanging world. Our curriculum is driven by the core belief that all children can succeed.
At Parkhead Community Primary School we believe that our curriculum should offer children not only the National Curriculum but life skills and experiences beyond this. We have identified key drivers which underpin the learning and experiences we undertake in all areas of school life. These key drivers are personal to our school and reflect the social and educational needs of our local area. Our key drivers for our school curriculum are: Well-Being and Resilience, Raising Aspirations and Understanding our place in the world.
We are passionate that all children realise that there is a wide world out there with many exciting opportunities and they can plan an active and positive part in it. We aim to enable the children to meet with visitors and expose them to life outside school broadening and raising their aspirations through providing them with ideas for their future careers.
Our curriculum is inclusive and allows every child to develop and flourish equally. Through our core values, we foster an environment where the emotional, physical, academic, social, moral, spiritual and cultural needs of each child is considered. Inclusion means that every child is treated as equal and given equal opportunities to all learning opportunities, progress at their level and access relevant support.
