Growing Life-long Learners at Moston Fields.
Dear Parents and Carers and other visitors,
Welcome to our school! We are a hard working and caring school community who strive to grow our children as life-long learners. Since the last Ofsted inspection, staff, parents, governors and children have been working hard to develop our school ethos, community and the learning experiences that we offer.
Our vision is to provide an inspiring education that sets all children up with the knowledge, skills and motivation needed to become learners for life – in the classroom and beyond. Our children will become caring, responsible future citizens that the community are proud of.
Our aims are to:
1) Inspire children to be life-long learners in the classroom, in the outdoor environment and within their community.
2) Develop proud, responsible individuals who become respectful and active citizens.
3) Harness children’s curiosity and encourage this through access to an extended curriculum and memorable learning experiences.
3) Ensure that children grow within a culture of high ambition that promotes a resilient and proactive attitude.
4) Actively promote children's pride in their own and other cultures; developing an understanding of themselves as a member of their immediate community and as a global citizen.
5) Develop children’s self-regulation and independence so that they can take responsibility for their own learning as they grow.
We are an improving school where every second counts and, with our new Senior Leadership team, we are busy putting key plans in place to ensure that all children achieve and thrive at Moston Fields.
Over this next year we will be:
- working on the key recommendation left to us by Ofsted in November 2016,
- developing teaching, learning and assessments to ensure best possible outcomes for all,
- introducing a new Cornerstones Curriculum in Key Stages 1 and 2 and a text-rich curriculum in Early Years. We will ensure that our curriculum inspires and engages all children, developing their basic skills, subject knowledge and life skills.
- ensure that we have a consistent approach to homework across school with Learning Logs and a new Homework policy being introduced,
- taking part in a Primary Writing Project that will set us up as a school that uses a Talk for Writing approach,
- begin our journey to becoming a Rights Respecting school,
- continuing to develop our Forest School provision and our outdoor learning offer,
- introducing an Every Child a Reader approach to reading and using the specialism of our new Reading Recovery Teacher to develop reading interventions and the teaching of reading.
- introducing a Place2Be service that will offer support for mental health and well-being for our children and parents and will help us develop the way our school supports children with dealing with their emotions,
- continuing to develop our school environment so that it is welcoming and reflects who we are,
We will also continue to develop the opportunities for parents and carers to be involved in school. Our Parent Focus Group is a key part of this.
All of our work will have the ultimate aim of developing our children into confident, articulate learners and active citizens of the future.
I look forward to working with the whole school community to do this, as your views and support are crucial to this success.
