We have worked hard to create a vision statement which reflects the many viewpoints of all stakeholders. This involved discussion, feedback and impressions. Common threads could be seen through the many positive comments made.
Earl Soham Community Primary School: Vision Statement
At Earl Soham Primary School pupils’ well-being and happiness is at the heart of our vision for success. Our curriculum is designed to nurture a thirst for learning and to encourage each child to reach their individual potential. Our ultimate aim is to foster caring, responsible and creative human beings, who are well equipped for the next stage of their learning journey.
Our creative curriculum is carefully designed to allow our children to seek and make meaningful connections between subjects. We aim for them to be able to build on what they already know to make deeper connections and truly understand rather than just recall.
We provide first hand learning experiences that allow children to develop social skills and build resilience. Children are encouraged to see mistakes as an opportunity to learn and not a reason to give up.
Our curriculum enables us to build strong relationships, celebrate diversity, encourage respect and build a sense of community. It provides and acknowledges success for all children, in all aspects of their development and it recognises, encourages and celebrates all types of talent.
Teamwork and responsibility are an essential part of our curriculum and we enable children to take on key roles, becoming involved in the community through membership of the school council, fundraising efforts to support local and international causes and caring for our environment.
Our school rules, PSHE lessons and assemblies promote positive attitudes, which reflect the values and skills needed for learning now, and for future success. These values are reinforced through our Dojo system where all aspects of a child’s successes are valued and rewarded. As part of our community celebrations it is important to staff and pupils that parents are included.
Children leave Earl Soham with a sense of unity and are proud of their achievements and attainment. Our goal is that they leave with the confidence and skills needed to be learners for life.
