LEARN, ACHIEVE, SHINE
As a Church of England School, Christian values underpin all we do and run through our whole ethos, curriculum and school life to ensure pupils leave Maryport Church of England Primary School as happy, secure, caring and responsible citizens.
Through our broad and balanced curriculum, we will enable each child to reach their full potential and nurture their interests, talents and skills, to learn, achieve and shine. We want pupils to develop lively, enquiring minds with the ability to question, discuss and formulate ideas and to become independent learners.
We will give our children a wide range of experiences in and out of the classroom, which will extend their spiritual and physical understanding of themselves and the world they live in. Through our focus Christian values we will encourage children to show consideration and respect for other members of the school and wider community and to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves, for others and for the environment.
Our curriculum builds on skills and knowledge as the children move through school developing their sense of pride and belonging in their local community and beyond into the wider world. We are very lucky to live in an area of the country that has a rich heritage and outstanding natural features and we regularly use our wonderful surroundings to enhance our curriculum. We provide many opportunities for pupils to extend their learning outside the classroom. Being part of the local community is very important to us; the partnerships we have developed with groups within the town and beyond, further extend our curriculum opportunities.
We want our children to achieve well in the next stage of their life. Our curriculum is designed to prepare children for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of future life, and we strive to do so by offering a broad and balanced curriculum from the children’s first days in the Nursery through to the end of Year 6.
