"We believe the primary school should be a safe and wonderful place where children want to be: where learning happens both within and outside of the classroom. Children will be encouraged to enjoy life whilst at school and discover their fascinations.
Whatever their background they will learn how to shape their own futures and develop their unique capacities and skills rooted in their own interests. They will learn the literacy and numeracy skills needed for life and necessary to progress in their education. They will be encouraged to be curious and use thinking skills to innovate, be creative and problem solve. They will develop their first understandings of employment and entrepreneurship.
A primary education should set up learners for life, with the knowledge and skills to be well rounded individuals, mentally and physically healthy, with an appreciation for and a generosity toward the people, the world and the universe around them.
Our approach is based on academic research and the collective experience of our full-time consultancy team, outstanding teachers, headteachers of schools with outstanding curriculum judgements and the pilot schools for 2013.
We will work together to develop and trial resources and schemes until first delivery in September 2014 and beyond in a continuing commitment to Primary Curriculum."
