Our aim is to provide quality education in a safe and caring environment.
At Copeland Road Primary School we encourage our pupils to participate in all aspects of the curriculum.
These vision and values statements were developed following pupil, parent, staff and governor questionnaires and discussions with pupils, staff and governors in 2016.
At Copeland Road Primary School we aim is to provide a safe and caring learning environment where all of the children can enjoy learning, experience success, increase their self-respect and aspire to reach their full potential. Children are at the heart of our school and we take great pride in developing our pupils to be the best that they can be.
We aim to ensure that the children who leave Copeland Road Primary are independent, inquiring learners with self-belief and have an enduring respect for others. We aim to instil a lifelong love for learning and a strong grounding for future success.
To achieve our aims we focus our teaching and learning on the needs of the pupils by having knowing the children well and having the highest expectations for all our pupils. We challenge all children to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal achievement within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.
We celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking, ensuring children welcome challenge and are not frightened to make mistakes. We encourage children to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to quality feedback. Children are praised for hard work, determination and having a positive attitude.
In order to create an inclusive school where everyone can flourish, whatever their background, we promote an ethos of respect and empathy, where diversity is valued and celebrated – both within school and the wider world. Safeguarding and welfare is extremely important and pupils are taught the virtues of kindness, appreciation and what it means to be courageous.
Care is taken to educate everyone in the Copeland Road community about the needs of others and how best to meet them. We foster open and honest communication with parents, carers and specialists and actively seek to engage with all members of the school community in a positive and supportive manner.
We strive to promote the arts to ensure that all of the pupils understand and appreciate all areas of learning and are able to use their skills and knowledge in creative and imaginative ways. We foster links with local artists and participate in art events whenever possible. Please see our Arts Policy which reflects the creative work carried out in school.
