Our Aims and vision
Creative, Unique, Innovative (Our Vision)
At Elements Primary School, we aim to give all the children of Elements Primary School the knowledge, skills, resilience, and ambition to become confident world changers at a local, national and global level.
We believe that learning is a creative process. We immerse our children in rich experiences using story, imaginative play, film, drama and music. We believe that the best learning is possible when you are passionate about something. We aim to light fires in children’s imaginations and encourage them to become their brilliant best.
Elements was built to innovate. We will always want to be the best. We will always want to offer the very best to our children. Our teacher development will ensure that we are always ahead of the curve.
Quite simply, there is no other school like Elements. We offer you the unique opportunity to become part of a brand new learning community.
The ‘Elements’ of Elements (Our Values)
Excellence in learning and teaching
Learning and teaching are based on the Elements Approach. The Elements Approach can be summarised as one of high challenge, high engagment and high participation. This approach to teaching and the dynamic, energising Elements Curriculum, underpinned by deep professional development at all levels, is designed to achieve a step change in outcomes.
Raise standards through the Elements Curriculum
In order to bring about this change, the design of the learning process embraces modern technology, alongside fun, adventure and deep-seated opportunities to learn and explore. Each strand of the Elements Curriculum addresses learning by doing and sharing.
Raise standards by involving families and parents
We believe that it takes a community to educate a child. We aim to ensure that parents are ever-present in the learning process. An outward facing culture of community engagement creates a school community that encourages widened participation.
We celebrate our children’s successes. Whole school and whole community celebrations happen weekly. They provide a forum for excellence for children and their families. Consistent high expectations, support and effective differentiation ensure that everyone succeeds.
Staff Training and Succession Planning
Our staff know that knowledge is key to providing the best help for children. Whole school training programmes for staff are ongoing. We identify, nurture and grow our own staff. Apprenticeships, professional development programmes and leadership development programmes are common features in our school. Parents can be guaranteed the best quality of staff at Elements Primary School.
Improve life chances for children
Our school will improve life chances through improved outcomes, nurturing, enhanced confidence and inspiring heightened ambitions and aspirations.
