Aim to Achieve
At the Butts Primary School, we aim to provide an education which is broad, deep, rich, relevant and enjoyable. Through high quality, effective teaching, stimulating learning opportunities and targeted support, both pastoral and learning, we hope to enable each child to achieve his or her potential. We want them to learn to work independently and/or collaboratively, to think creatively, solve problems and to use their initiative to apply what they have learnt in a range of contexts.
We will nurture children and help them to develop socially, emotionally, academically, culturally, creatively, physically and spiritually, so that they may become happy, confident, independent, fulfilled and well-rounded people.
We will encourage children to be healthy, to make informed choices, to develop an awareness of right and wrong, to show respect for one another and for the world around them. We will promote the ‘British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs to prepare children for life in our multi-cultural society. We wish to instil in them a growing sense of responsibility and ownership of their own behaviour and learning, which enables them to become valued citizens with a good understanding of who they are and what they could achieve/contribute.
The development of the curriculum is an evolving process which takes into account global and national trends, community priorities and the needs of the individual child. We aim to support them in developing the skills, knowledge, behaviours and attitudes which will pave the way for a lifelong love of learning, and equip them to cope in a fast-changing and uncertain world. We want our children to be able to look to the future with confidence.
