Retention – Application – Inspiration – Success for Everyone
Our RAISE Curriculum is built upon the drivers of Economic Wellbeing, Equality and Environmental Awareness. Our drivers underpin the learning and experiences we undertake in all areas of school life and ensure our curriculum offer is enriched and personalised to our children and that it prioritises the things we want our children to experience.
These key drivers are personal to our school and reflect the social and educational needs of our children and local area.
We believe that our school has a critical role to play in educating our children to be global citizens. Alongside our Christian Values and British Values, our drivers support our children to grow into young people who are socially aware, challenge stereotypes and are committed to making their world a more sustainable and equitable place.
We want to prepare our children to achieve economic wellbeing - to inspire them to go on to further education, start some kind of training or get a job when they leave school. We want to ensure that all our children have the chance to fulfil their potential and are not prevented by economic disadvantage. We aim to give our children a head start in life by helping develop their financial knowledge, abilities and values towards money, and to have a deep awareness, and often empathy, of the wider world and the varying examples of economic wellbeing we find there.
Equality to us means appreciating every individual with equal opportunities for all, regardless of culture, race, gender, religious beliefs, disability, age, relationships or social circumstances. We positively celebrate our differences and believe that all voices should have an equal right to be heard. We encourage the children to make sure that everyone is treated fairly and equip them with the skills and understanding to challenge stereotypes and negative attitudes amongst others.
We want our children to understand their role in society and develop respect for the environment in both local and global issues. We believe that from an early age, children need to learn how to use resources wisely and do their bit in the battle against climate change. We seek to spark an interest in caring for and protecting the environment and give the children opportunities to take the lead in local initiatives, in ways such as campaigning, fundraising and small-scale practical engagement. We want to develop children who are keen to take action to improve the environment, to make a difference and help to create a better and brighter future for the generations to come.
