'Pupils work well together, help each other and enjoy their learning because teachers make lessons interesting and fun' - Ofsted 2019
HEAD TEACHER’S WELCOME
On behalf of all the governors, staff and children I would like to extend a warm welcome to Glade Primary School. We are committed to developing values, attitudes, and life skills that result in the children becoming empathetic global citizens. This is very much encompassed in our school motto:
“Growing, Learning and Achieving with Dedication and Enthusiasm”
As a Rights Respecting School, we put the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of everything we do. Our ‘Rights Respecting Gold Award’, celebrates that we fully embed the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into our ethos, culture and curriculum. Our pupils are encouraged to think independently and challenge information and news around them- evaluating what is accurate and what is 'fake news'.
Diversity and inclusion threads through all areas of our curriculum. It is important that our children are represented in books, poetry, authors and artists that they study. This contributes to well-being which is one of our core curriculum drivers and further supports our pledge towards our 'Anti-racist Award'. Our ‘Well-being Award for Schools’ is evidence that mental health and wellbeing sit at the heart of our school life at Glade.
We are immensely proud of our school, the passionate team that works here and the exciting curriculum and other enrichment activities which our children enjoy all year round within a nurturing, friendly and family-oriented environment. Outdoor learning lends itself to practical engagement and appropriate risk taking. We believe children need these opportunities in order to build their confidence, spatial awareness, physical strength and the ability to keep themselves safe in an ever-changing and unpredictable world. The work carried out in classrooms is further enhanced through our provision of outdoor learning within the school’s grounds, in our own forest, fire pits and pond area.
We hope that our website will give you a glimpse of our values, curriculum, events and community. If you would like to know more then you are encouraged to contact the school office and arrange a visit to see us at work.
Mrs Farzana Hussain.
