Our Curriculum Intent and Values
Happy Children Who Achieve
The curriculum at Penwortham Primary School has been developed to provide an inclusive environment where all learners enjoy their education and are inspired to learn through an exciting curriculum.
Our aim is to equip our children with personal characteristics and skills, as well as academic knowledge, required to succeed in life.
Our School Values
Our school values are embedded throughout the curriculum by our ‘Personal Best’ values. We aim for our pupils to be their very best ‘Social Me’, ‘Thinking Me’ and ‘Healthy Me’ through the values of : Respect, Communication, Trust, Resilience, Honesty, Responsibility, Problem Solving, Reflection and Curiosity.
We have high expectations across the curriculum and provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners.
Our children are challenged and encouraged to expand their knowledge and skills through varied curriculum opportunities and to be curious about the world around them.
Through consultation we have identified the following as important ‘drivers’ for our curriculum: utilising the outdoors for learning; recognising, valuing and respecting diversity and an enjoyment appreciation and participation in the ‘arts’ (including music, drama, design, craft).
Ultimately, we want our children to be their ‘Personal Best’; making a positive contribution to the wider world and the community in which they live. We aim to ensure they are well prepared for the future challenges of their learning journey.
