Curriculum Statement

Spires Federation Curriculum Statement

 

Our Core Values are: Success, Happiness, Inspiration, Nuture for Everyone 

Our Mission: 

To provide an aspirational education, which inspires all in our community so that they are happy, confident and equipped for life in all its fullness.

‘Opening Door, Opening Minds.’

As schools we want to provide our pupils with the academic knowledge and skills that will provide the foundations for their future lives. We want to give our pupils the opportunity to be the best that they can be, ensuring that they have the best possible start to their education so that they are well prepared for secondary school, university and life. 

But we know that education is so much more than being able to read, write and count. It's about becoming more rounded, developing skills and abilities that are not measurable in tests, it's about developing relationships, respect for themselves, others, their communities. Opening Minds is all of this and more. It's about giving our children greater cultural capital so that they can appreciate the work of great musicians and artists, experience sporting opportunities, grow in confidence and raise their aspirations.
