At Bournville Primary Provision we aim to provide a strong foundation enabling each pupil to reach his or her full potential. We embrace the Trust’s core values of Excellence, Dedication, Ambition, Integrity and Tradition in our relentless pursuit of excellence for every child in all areas of the curriculumx.
We work to create an atmosphere that encourages confidence and self-esteem, where each child is happy, enjoys learning and develops skills for education and life. The curriculum is stimulating, relevant and varied and the working environment enables the development of individual strengths and co-operative skills. We always aim to improve on our previous best.
Bournville Primary Provision provides a caring and challenging environment, where children grow in confidence. Each child has a significant place, contributing varied abilities and gifts in a supportive environment. The school has a contribution to make our community, and values opportunities to work with local organisations.
Bournville Primary Provision ensures the children learn the full range of the National Curriculum in a continuous, structured and progressive manner. The National Curriculum subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communication Technology, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art and Physical Education are covered at suitable levels for each age group and for individual children’s ability. These are usually taught through general topics that relate different subjects under one title. In addition Religious Education Days are held each half term to form a part of the children’s learning experiences.
Research shows that children have a better understanding of what they are learning, if they commit core knowledge to memory. In order to support our children to make links and embed knowledge within their long term memory, we will be sending out ‘Knowledge Organisers’, each half term.
This is a document that contains all the key facts and vocabulary that children need to learn for that topic. We encourage children to learn this knowledge off-by-heart. This will allow them to grapple with more complex ideas and questions in lessons.
By sharing these ‘Knowledge Organisers’ with you, we are hoping that everyone knows exactly what is being taught, and what the children need to learn.
