  • Children learn best when they are happy and secure.
    The first aim therefore is to create a happy, secure, stable and caring environment in which children can develop to the full.
    We aim to meet the needs of every child.
    We aim to provide varied and challenging learning experiences in order to help pupils develop lively inquiring minds, to be creative and to expand their intellectual capacities.
    We aim to develop a child’s independence and personal responsibility in the learning situation, so that with encouragement they become self-disciplined, well-motivated and best equipped towards fulfilling their individual potential.
  • Children need skills and knowledge, which are relevant to adult life and which will enable them to cope with our changing world as they enter the world of work.
    We aim to provide a sound foundation in literacy, numeracy and ICT skills and to foster positive attitudes towards these areas allowing pupils to use these skills efficiently and effectively in the world of work.
  • Children need to understand the world in which they live.
    We aim to provide opportunities so that children can gain a wide knowledge, experience and understanding across the curriculum. In doing so they will develop, use and apply language, mathematical and creative skills, which will enable them to gain and understand new information.
  • Children need to be able to integrate into and contribute to society.
    We encourage children to relate positively with others and to take responsibility for their own actions thus supporting them in life outside school.
    We aim, with the leadership of the Senior Leadership Team, to provide a highly professional, caring and effective teaching staff who can bring to their teaching their knowledge and experience of the society in which we all live.
    We aim to provide a support service that will support teaching and learning in school. Our Support for Learning Assistants will be deployed in the most effective manner to support our children.
    At Nethermains Primary School, we know the difference that parents and carers make in the life of their child. We know when we involve parents and carers that everyone benefits from this important partnership. We aim to work alongside parents to ensure best outcomes for each and every child at Nethermains.
