‘Shine like stars in the universe’
Our vision provides a guiding light to the pupils, staff, Governors and parents to ensure we have a dynamic mix of high achievement for all, exceptional pastoral care and expansive opportunities for the children. We want our children to become the exemplary citizens of the future. We are a vibrant, happy, family orientated community where everyone really feels they can flourish and achieve anything to which they set their hearts and minds.
Our South Otterington CE curriculum is based on the National Curriculum documents.
We also use the KAPOW scheme of work to enhance some areas of our curriculum.
We use the National Curriculum alongside our vision to ensure we offer a dynamic mix of expansive curriculum opportunities for the children and high achievement for all. We want our children to become the exemplary citizens of the future.
Children are encouraged to express themselves imaginatively and accurately in oral and written work. Neat handwriting, accurate spelling, grammar and punctuation are essential if children’s ideas are to be passed on to others. These skills, which are exemplified in the National Literacy Strategy are taught throughout the school.
From a range of graded reading schemes to a wealth of novels and factual books, we try to instil in the children enjoyment of the printed word. Children are encouraged to take their reading books home each night. We welcome parental involvement in the acquisition of reading skills. Children’s progress in reading is regularly tested.
