How we plan to achieve our vision?
In order to help children feel comfortable taking risks, making mistakes in their learning and allowing them to advance, we strive to maintain a learning atmosphere that is safe, secure, and enriching for both students and staff. To guarantee that no student is left behind, we put a strong emphasis on ensuring that this environment benefits every student in our varied school community, regardless of racial, socio-economic or religious background.
- Use our innovative teaching techniques to help create a stimulating and participative learning environment
- Continue to develop and foster relationships with outside agencies to ensure we meet everybody's needs and support families
- Develop our programme for emotional literacy in the school to support all children, not just pupils with Special Educational Needs
- Hold appropriate regular events at the school reflecting issues of the day and celebrating diversity.
Along with achieving outstanding academic results, we also wish to offer our Saltersgate students a wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to enhance their school experience. As a result, we will keep expanding our arts and outdoor learning programmes. We feel that outdoor learning is a vital component of academic life and offers numerous advantages. Our curriculum and daily school life include outdoor learning as an extension of our classrooms. It encourages adaptation and resilience, reverence for the natural world and the environment, the development of problem-solving abilities in "actual" situations, as well as offering good health advantages.
Forest School is an extension of this outdoor learning ethos and promotes a healthy attitude towards children managing their own risks whilst developing skills not often associated with a primary curriculum, such as whittling, fire management and den construction.
Saltersgate is centred on the arts. We all agree that exposure to and enjoyment of various art forms are crucial for ensuring that students receive a well-rounded education. Music, art, design, performance, theatre, dance, literature, outdoor learning, creativity, and other forms of the arts will all (are) be woven into our curriculum.
Every child will continue to have the has) chance to express themselves via high quality school productions of music, dance, and theatre.
We consider it crucial to collaborate with others in order to benefit from their experiences and expertise and to stay current with best practices. Working with other schools in our local area, in Doncaster, or elsewhere may be necessary for this. Both working with schools in our local area, alongside others beyond our locality. We will also start establishing contacts with schools all across the world thanks to our new connections with the British Council.
By exchanging best practises, we will continue to build partnerships and improve ties with other UK institutions. To ensure that we do not work alone, we are also committed to collaborating with the local community and its services. Learning never ends, and we think it's crucial to both share and learn.
