We aim to be central to our culturally diverse community, striving for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest
Our academy encourages exploration and creativity through an inspiring, broad and balanced, engaging curriculum where learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in a risk-taking environment where they thrive on and learn from the challenges they face. Everyone is encouraged to achieve as individuals, in preparation for their roles as caring and active citizens in modern Britain.
"To create a school that makes you long for childhood"
"How children learn is as important as what they learn"
"Good teachers make a difference, outstanding teachers transform lives"
At the Fulbridge Academy we must ignite children"s imagination and their active, willing and enthusiastic engagement in their learning.
Our vision is to: ensure that every child succeeds; build on what learners already know; make learning vivid and real; make learning an enjoyable experience; enrich the learning experience as well as promote "Children"s Voice" and "Assessment for Learning".
Our curriculum should enable children to encounter and begin to explore the wealth of human experience through induction into, and active engagement in, the different ways through which humans make sense of their world: intellectual, moral, spiritual, aesthetic, social, emotional and physical, through language, mathematics, science, the humanities, the arts, religion and other ways of knowing and understanding and act upon it.
Creative Thinking is at the heart of the Fulbridge approach to learning. We aspire for the children to explore, negotiate, discover and experiment. We want them to speculate, empathise, reflect, collaborate, cooperate and persevere. Children need to show initiative, and demonstrate leadership, teamwork, flexibility, integrity, imagination and curiosity.
Our curriculum must serve:
The Individual: by ensuring well-being, engagement, empowerment and autonomy.
The Fulbridge Academy aspires to develop children who demonstrate courtesy and good manners. Children who have respect for themselves, their peers, adults and other generations as well as respect for difference, language and the environment both globally and locally.
To achieve our vision and aims the Fulbridge Academy will work in collaboration with parents and the community. We will build on children"s learning outside school, promote high quality professional development and have high expectations of children and adults. We aim to foster appropriate pupil-pupil and pupil-teacher relationships, use new technologies, base decisions on recognised research and pedagogy. In this way we will develop creativity, develop skills for the teaching of English as an Additional Language and promote outstanding leadership and governance.
At the Fulbridge Academy we will teach, plan and assess the children through the Eight Domains of the Cambridge Primary Review:
