"Inspiring learning through faith and values"

Our Vision for Learning

Pembridge CE Primary School firmly believes it has an enriching curriculum which offers children a wide variety of experiences from singing in a cathedral, to competing in sports with other schools, sewing rainforest animals and making mud pies in its outdoor kitchen. Whilst we regard academic success as a significant outcome of every child’s learning journey, the breadth of education must always reflect what the world and society requires – that our young people demonstrate positive well-being, find delight in wonder, are respectful to others, show an inspirational way of dealing with challenges as well as being able to read, write and solve maths problems!

We are a school where everyone seeks all that is good and worthy of praise so that each child rejoices in the skills and eagerness to embrace the next phase of their education.

Our Learning Behaviours

Our learning is inspired through faith and values so that we continually aim for teaching and learning of the highest quality. It is underpinned by our high expectations that children demonstrate behaviours which enable them to flourish, whatever subject or task is put before them. These eight key skills are celebrated in our weekly celebration worship: try new things, work hard, concentrate, self-motivate, imagine, improve, understand others and don’t give up. By embracing these, we enable all our children to engage in an inspiring, enjoyable curriculum with a greater understanding of how they are able to succeed and achieve their very best.

Building our 'Cultural Capital' 

‘Cultural capital’ is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours and skills that a child can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients a child will draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work. ‘Cultural capital’ gives a child power. It helps them achieve goals, become successful, and rise up the social ladder without necessarily having wealth or financial means. ‘Cultural capital’ is about providing opportunities so that children have the desire to aspire and achieve social mobility whatever their starting point. We look to build our ‘cultural capital’ through six key areas which are interrelated and cumulatively contribute to the success of our children’s readiness for the world beyond the classroom: personal, spiritual, moral, social, cultural and physical development.

Learning Together

The curriculum should be involving, so that in working with parents and carers we can help to shape each child's learning, to motivate and to enthuse. Our termly Learning Together newsletter is full of advice and strategies to help your child develop skills and confidence in areas of learning which can be difficult.

Edition 1 on spelling strategies.

Edition 2 on motor skills.

Edition 3 on fine and gross motor skills.

Edition 4 on representing number.

We also recognise that children will need different ways of support and encouragement to succeed as they journey through school. You can find further details of the help we can give to children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) on our Key Documents tab. You can also find out our approach to helping our 'vulnerable' children flourish in school here. Our interpretation of children who are 'vulnerable' are those who have SEND, those in receipt of Pupil Premium, and also those children staff feel in school need additional support to thrive.
