At Princes Risborough Primary School the curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide real life and first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build Growth Mindset and resilience and become reflective, creative, and critical thinkers.
We celebrate and positively welcome differences within our school community. Every child is recognised as a unique individual. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly strive to provide enrichment opportunities to engage the children in their learning and we believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and inquisitive time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. We teach Growth Mindset both through discrete lessons and throughout subject areas to develop the children’s perseverance skills and to emphasise the importance of learning through our mistakes.
We believe that community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, learning new skills to enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year.
Children leave Princes Risborough Primary School with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
