At Falcons Primary School, we aim to teach children how to grow into positive, compassionate, resilient people, who can work and co-operate with others whilst developing knowledge and skills. Thus, they can achieve their true potential and be happy and fulfilled in themselves: in other words, to ‘be the best they can be’.
We believe that Sikh values are relevant to all our pupils and, when taught in a child-centred way, can help them to become responsible citizens, upholding British Values in the wider world.
At Falcons, our curriculum is driven by the need for our children to develop as lifelong learners. We offer a diverse curriculum which is ambitious for all learners, while developing the essential knowledge, skills and understanding which are the building blocks for later life. Our curriculum encompasses not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but goes beyond these to ensure that our children are exposed to the richest and most varied opportunities that we can provide. It is designed to give all our pupils:
- the knowledge and skills that prepare them for the next stage of their education (KS1, KS2 or secondary school).
- a ‘go-for-it’ attitude towards learning so that all children enjoy coming to school and embrace new challenges and possibilities, pushing their own boundaries.
- a wide range of experiences, including the arts, sports and science, that broaden their horizons beyond their immediate circumstances.
- self-belief in their own uniqueness and ambition for their future.
- the confidence to appreciate and explore their own faith, spirituality and culture as well as respecting and valuing diversity.
- an understanding of the importance of British Values.
- the ability to question and learn from the past, live confidently and honestly in the present and the belief that they can influence the future.
- experience of success and resilience to learn from their mistakes.
- motivation and knowledge to live a healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally.
- a sense of wonder towards nature, knowledge of the world around them and the curiosity to question and explore it.
- the necessary tools to keep themselves safe in both the real and online worlds.
- the skills to develop positive, healthy relationships and to treat others with kindness.
