Greatworth School are building a community where children build the confidence, resilience and drive that will help them to grow into happy, articulate, successful young people. Our children achieve high standards and build strong foundations in the core skills. Children are empowered to change their own lives and the lives of those around them. They are able to stand up and become pillars of the community, making a difference. They are good role-models who inspire through a love of learning and are motivated to make a positive impact on each other’s lives. Together, we continually strive to remove the barriers to success and fear of failure. We provide a culture of mutual respect and acceptance with children moving onto their next venture with the knowledge, skills and values to set them on the path to achieve their dreams.
Our curriculum drivers
Self-Aware and Key Stage Ready
Our children are developing their learning skills: They are Independent, Positive, Curious and Creative learners who are reflective and responsible for their own learning and ready for the next stage in their education.
Children build aspirations and recognise that as individuals we are responsible leaders who can use our knowledge and skills to give something back to our team, community, world and environment.
Globally and Culturally Aware:
Children are provided with opportunities to learn about people from other places, times and religions in order that they acquire the knowledge of a rainbow of cultures and model tolerance and respect.
Our curriculum is carefully designed to meet the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. As a rural village school in the heart of the community, we believe that we provide a curriculum based on our five values which best serves our children so that they are:
Curious, Creative, Empowered, Positive, Respectful
We will develop the knowledge and skills that children need to succeed
- Develop children’s vocabulary acquisition and oracy skills so that they can articulate their thoughts both verbally and in written form, in order to communicate effectively in a range of situations.
- Provide opportunities for children to be exposed to a wide variety of cultures, topics, themes and points of view to counter-balance the lack of diversity in our local demographic at our largely white British school, in order to prepare them for life in modern Britain.
