Welcome to Addison Primary School
The moment I became Head Teacher at Addison in 2015, I knew that it was an incredibly special school.
I could not be prouder of the children, staff and community around us. We have achieved so much in the recent years and we have secured a culture and ethos within the school that is of high aspirations, care and a continuous drive to provide the children with the very best start in life.
Our core set of values, generated by pupils, parents and staff, are Respect, Responsibility, Perseverance, Honesty and Friendship. Values are principles that guide behaviour and choices. At Addison, adults model values and give time for reflective practices. We believe that this empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens. The Values that we teach are relatable to our pupils through the ‘values characters’. These help our pupils to understand how to develop their character, to know that individual differences should be valued, to be resilient, reflective, to have empathy and respect for one another.
We have a vision where we work together, ‘To give pupils experiences and opportunities that are above and beyond the academic which will enable them to become resilient, compassionate and resourceful individuals’.
To achieve this, we provide our pupils with the skills and knowledge to thrive in this modern world. Our curriculum is based on a themed approach and every lesson and every experience is tailored towards ensuring that every pupil succeeds. Curriculum themes that are reinforced are:
Confidence and courage - Every child recognises their self-worth and is able to articulate what they can contribute to class, school and society.
Creativity - Every child believes in their own abilities and recognises their own particular talents e.g. Musical instrument, sporting activity, academic subject etc…
Healthy Living - Every child understands what a safe and secure friendship looks and feels like; and also knows how to make the best choices to keep themselves well, both physically and mentally.
Strong partnerships with parents are part of our success, as is our committed community who work together to improve the school and outcomes for our children.
