Visions and Values

These are the Curriculum drivers for our school:

Inquisitive Learners

  • We would like the pupils at Newker to show curiosity towards their learning and equip them with the confidence to find out more.
  • To help pupils formulate questions such as who, what, why, where, when and how.
  • To become effective researchers to learn where to look to find out more.
  • To also develop and nurture their own interests and explore new ideas.

Respectful Learners

  • We would like the pupils at Newker to be taught how to treat others how they would like to be treated themselves.
  • To look after the school, class resources and the property of others.
  • To use language that is respectful when speaking to peers and all adults in school.
  • To listen and value the ideas of others and also respecting differences, views and opinions.
  • To use polite manners towards everyone in school.

Resilient Learners

  • We would like the pupils at Newker to not give up, not to be afraid of failure and to learn from them.
  • To keep trying and learning different strategies to help them overcome problems.
  • To help pupils develop their self-confidence and a belief in themselves that they can achieve.
  • To develop a positive growth mindset and be able to bounce back.

Aspirational Learners

  • We would like the pupils at Newker to know their goals and targets and to be challenged to achieve highly by challenging stereotypes and raising their expectations.
  • To link subjects and activities to the world of work in real-life contexts to help prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.
  • To provide pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum, with opportunities to excel in other areas and value these successes.

Happy and Healthy Learners

  • We would like the pupils at Newker to enjoy school, their learning and the opportunities that they have.
  • To learn to recognise how they feel and be able to talk about their feelings.
  • To feel safe and secure and seek the support of staff if needed.
  • To develop positive relationships with other children and adults in school.
  • To be active learners in lessons and at break and lunchtimes.
  • To learn about healthier choices for snacks and at lunchtime, based on an understanding of healthy lifestyles.
