Our vision for learning (Quoted from Teaching and Learning policy)
The vision for our school is to provide our children with the best possible start in life through the provision of a vibrant, engaging and relevant curriculum where children are challenged and inspired to excel. We strive to develop a community of life-long learners who are ready to succeed in the 21st century.
Geography inspires a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with our pupils for the rest of their lives. It is a subject which enables the children to travel the world, learning about different places and their communities. By learning about human and physical geography they can build on their place and locational knowledge throughout their time at Wales Primary School, enabling them to make comparisons and find similarities. We aim to deepen the children’s understanding of their actions towards sustainability and the developing needs of our planet.
