What makes a school special? What makes a school right for you and your child?
This choice can be a difficult and often emotional one, made even more confusing by the plethora of advice and opinion. At Spetisbury, we know what makes us special for the children and the community that we serve; our school offers our children the freedom to learn in a number of effective ways.
Our curriculum is built upon the National Curriculum, building skills and knowledge as a child progresses through the year groups making learning irresistible. We have a unique rural setting which provides a fantastic learning environment for all. We have high expectations and our children are expected to actively engage and challenge themselves in their own learning and respect the rights of others to learn.
We hook our learning with unique projects and extra curricular trips and visits. These offer children the opportunity to put their learning into context and learn about the world outside the classroom.
Our curriculum supports the needs of our community at Spetisbury by allowing the children the freedom to build the skills for life. Through appropriate programmes of study, whole school curriculum opportunities, extracurricular activities and leadership our children explore their own rights, responsibilities, respect of others and potential. This ensures they have the confidence, resilience, academic skills, organisation and self-awareness to thrive and embrace the demands of an ever-changing modern world.
Spetisbury is a stimulating environment with happy, purposeful young people. Children are relaxed and keen to learn in an atmosphere that is filled with warmth and enthusiasm. They are able to flourish and share experiences across their classes. Each year our children take part in competitive sporting events and our older children take up a role as a young leader, actively participating in school life. Our Year 6 children confidently move on to their next school, ready to continue their next stage in education. These children leave Spetisbury as caring, independent, confident and well-balanced young people who enjoy learning and are more than ready for demands and challenges that await them.
