Visions and Values
Here at Widden Primary School our aim is to provide all of our children with the highest possible quality of education. We believe this includes a wide range of enriched, relevant and engaging learning experiences.
We strongly believe that children learn best when they are focused on the things that interest them, have a clear purpose and are fun. Our staff team has a vast amount of expertise and every member is committed to providing a bespoke, broad and balanced curriculum for our children and the community we serve.
Our curriculum is dynamic, and staff, just like our children, are committed to self-improvement.
Everyone in our school aims to be the best they can be.
We place a great emphasis on academic achievement alongside the development of the whole child and strive for educational excellence in all that we do. We have high aspirations for EVERY child in our school.
We aim to maximise learning by ensuring every moment spent here is a valuable one. Our school values are:
The FREE underpin our school culture and inform the learning across the curriculum. Our values are embedded in everything we do.
Forest School, outdoor learning and our thriving sports provision are also vital parts of school life. These opportunities enable our children to become absorbed in their own learning.
We aim to build children’s self-confidence and their independence in order that they develop into life-long learners. This is supported by our bespoke school learning superheroes, which are a cornerstone of learning in each classroom.
Please read our Curriculum Intent Statement for details of how we achieve these aims.
Most importantly, we value our children, their voice and their childhood within our community. Our team of enthusiastic teachers and teaching assistants, along with supportive governors and parents, are dedicated to providing a varied, fun and safe learning environment within which children can flourish and reach their true potential.
We warmly welcome visits to our school. Please contact the school office to ask any questions, to discuss individual needs or to arrange to visit our school.
