At Star Primary School, our curriculum is based on our central value to uphold children’s rights at all times. We aim to deliver this by our belief in these guiding principles:
|Research driven: We use lesson study approaches to research educational pedagogy and develop ourselves as lifelong learners and reflective practitioners.
|Inclusive: We believe that every child must access a curriculum that enables them to succeed and grow to their full potential, whatever that may be.
|Growth Mindsets: We are a Thinking School. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy and Thinking Frames, our learning is based on an understanding of expressing how we think and develop our ideas.
|Happy-centred and holistic: We focus on giving children key life skills in order to be resilient, cope with life’s challenges and solve problems for themselves.
|Topic Based: We use stimulating and relevant topics each half term to promote joined up thinking, use a common language and help draw comparisons and link their learning across different subjects.
|Successful: We strive to prepare all pupils for lifelong effectiveness and success: for all pupils to feel triumphant in their achievements.
The award is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together. Our children can articulate their knowledge about rights and the understanding of their application within the school context and beyond.
Our aim is to empower children to live a happy, healthy life and become responsible global citizens of the future.
Freedom of expression is a fundamental human right. It reinforces all other human rights. This term, pupils will explore their own creativity, develop their imagination and have opportunities to perform. We will also be exploring art and faith as a means of expression and explore the importance of tolerance and understanding.
Article 14: Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose and also to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping others from enjoying their rights.
