We aim to ignite in our students a love of learning which will serve them well throughout their lives.
"Since we cannot know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try and teach it in advance. Instead we should try to turn out people who love learning so much, and learn so well, that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learnt" - (John Holt)
The aim of our learning vision is to:
- Develop an enthusiastic, innovative learning community which enables all to achieve high standards.
- Developing lifelong learners who have the knowledge, skills and learning attributes that enable them to deal with whatever challenges of a rapidly changing world.
We hold these aims as the key to success in securing literate and numerate children. They will then be well equipped to meet the challenges in the next stage of their learning journey because they are resilient, resourceful, reflective, co-operative and independent learners.
The Wellbeing of our pupils is at the heart of our curriculum. Our curriculum vision is rooted in Welsh values and culture. It has the development of literacy and numeracy at its core, alongside developing the attributes for children to be good learners, as these are the essential life skills for every child to be able to access future learning. Our children learn best through practical 'hands on' learning opportunities; these enable them to experience learning in a meaningful way that reflects their interest and needs. We tailor learning to provide children with opportunities to develop skills and explore concepts. These will allow them to build their knowledge and understanding through topics that will capture their interest and stimulate their imagination; developing ownership and decision making equipping all young people with the knowledge, skills and dispositions for future challenges as lifelong learners.
"A curriculum for Wales - A curriculum for Life"
All staff are committed to develop learners' English and Welsh literacy, numeracy and digital competence skills through a meaningful broad and balanced curriculum to enhance their life chances.
