At Southwold Primary School, there is always a warm, welcoming atmosphere where the curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers through a fully, inclusive approach.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school and wider community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of skills, knowledge, concepts and values, centred on challenge for all.
We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. We use enquiry questions to promote positive attitudes towards learning, which reflects our core values (including British values), and fundamentals skills needed to promote independent lifelong learners.
Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we recognise local and cultural traditions, enabling the children to understand and respect the diverse world in which we live.
All children leave our school with a sense of belonging where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become good citizens.
