Banks Road Infant and Nursery School
Banks Road Infant and Nursery School will provide a safe, secure and welcoming environment in which respect for cultural diversity, celebration of achievement and commitment to shared values fosters the growth of confidence and self esteem in every child and their family.
The quality of teaching and learning will reflect the high value the school places on the achievement of all the pupils, reflecting diversity of race, equality of gender and awareness of individual need. The quality of care provided throughout the school day will promote independence and self esteem in all pupils.
Careful planning of the curriculum and consistent assessment of pupil progress will ensure the provision of learning experiences which are appropriate to each child, building on present understanding in order to develop and extend skills and knowledge. Well informed transition between Key Stages will ensure progression and continuity of curriculum provision from the Foundation Stage to the end of Key Stage 1 and beyond to KS2.
Teaching and Support staff will be deployed across the school to best meet identified need. This will ensure that curriculum provision and the use of resources supports the school’s stance on issues of equal opportunity in terms of race, gender and special educational need, contributing to the personal development of all pupils.
The school will encourage the growth of such personal qualities as empathy, consideration for others and the ability to co-operate; promoting community cohesiveness, fostering the development of self discipline and the awareness that each person is responsible for their own actions.
