Cranbrook C of E Primary

Teaching & Learning 

At Cranbrook Church of England Primary School we aim that all learning and teaching opportunities provided for our children are outstanding. All Teaching and Learning in our school will be at least good. Teaching and learning is a partnership with staff, children and parents that enables children to make progress and achieve their individual goals and aspirations.

We believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the idea that both adults and children learn new things every day. Our learning and teaching is underpinned by our Christian Values.

We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives.

Aims and objectives

We aim to provide a rich and varied learning environment that allows all children to develop their skills and abilities to their full potential, irrespective of socio-economic background, disability or special educational need, ethnicity, gender or creed.

Through our teaching we aim:

  • To teach pupils within a supportive Christian ethos.
  • To enable children to become confident, resourceful, enquiring, independent and reflective learners who make good progress throughout their years at school and attain at least in line with their true potential;
  • To foster children’s self-esteem and help them build positive relationships with other people;
  • To develop children’s self-respect and encourage children to respect the ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others;
  • To show respect for all cultures and, in so doing, to promote positive attitudes towards other people;
  • To enable children to understand their community and help them feel valued as part of this community;
  • To enable children to grow into reliable, independent and positive citizens.
