Shardlow Primary school is part of Willows Academy Trust.
We are a happy, active learning environment and we are proud of our school; our children and teaching staff and the support we receive from our parents and community.
Our pupils are enthused by our dynamic topic led curriculum and are proud of their school. They fully engage with homework activities which support their learning and we love seeing what they come up with for the open ended tasks and how far they have progressed on the IXL.The children's behaviour reflects their enjoyment for the learning activities both in and out of school and they rise to the high expectations we have of them. We fully incorporate our values and ideals into all aspects of school teaching and learning. Our children are happy at school.
The school year is enriched with activity days and weeks, parent events, visitors and trips which are always well attended and supported. We run a wide range of clubs led by school staff and outside providers and have two Residential trips for years 5 and 6 and 3 and 4 and all our year 3,4,5, and 6 children swim all year. As a school we fully participate in the Schools Sports Partnership and are proud of our sporting successes. We have a large and expanding allotment area and are fully engaged with the Food for Life accreditation and believe that growing and cooking develop healthy attitudes and life skills relevant to our children's futures. These activities are fully embedded within our curriculum.
-We believe that every child matters.
-We believe that every child has the right to achieve its potential through an exciting and varied curriculum which develops a love of learning.
-We ensure that our school is an inclusive environment which welcomes everybody regardless of religion, race, colour, orientation or learning and physical needs.
-We believe that the health and safety of our pupils is of the utmost importance and we will strive to give them confidence and self esteem to enable them to be happy and successful members of society.
-We promote in our children respect and consideration, giving them an awareness of the world and of the skills they will need to make a positive contribution to it.
At Shardlow we aim to develop key skills and core values which form the basis of our school vision. These skills are: Independence, openmindedness, respectful and responsible behaviour, motivation and confidence. We hope that these skills will develop in our children the values which will enable them to be fully active, generous, tolerant and caring citizens of Great Britain and the wider world. These skills incorporate those values which will enable them to be a positive British and global citizen.
The children are rewarded for demonstrating these behaviours through our school ticket system. These tickets can be spent in the school shop.
