Our Vision and Values

At Chestnut Park Primary School we put children at the heart of every decision we make and every action we take. We offer innovative learning opportunities that will inspire curiosity, develop inquiring minds and maximise learning potential for all children.

Our ASPIRE Curriculum is underpinned by our curriculum drivers - Inspire, Innovate, Impact.

The curriculum ensures that every child at Chestnut Park Primary School will Aspire, Advance and Achieve.

Aspire, Advance, Achieve

Our ambitious ASPIRE curriculum will help children to gain an advantage, so that they can maximise their learning, ensuring they are empowered to excel in their future life choices.

We are limitless in our aspirations and ambition for the children at Chestnut Park. By working in unison with parents and the wider community we will ensure that children are guided to make conscious, positive choices to achieve extraordinary things.

By providing an interconnected curriculum focused on the sequential development of knowledge and skills, all children will progress and advance in their learning to enable individual aspirations to be achieved. By focusing on each child’s personal learning journey we will maximum progress and long term learning for all children.

Immersion in a knowledge enriched curriculum will guarantee children develop vocabulary and skills as well as developing the essential ‘Exceptional Learner Attributes’ – motivation, resilience, curiosity, courage, communication and connection that support them becoming ‘Star Learners’. We will support pupils to display positive leaning behaviours by equipping them to be ‘ready to learn’. Pupils will have been taught the dispositions and behaviours that enable them and others to listen, engage and contribute when being taught.

We will foster a culture of ‘perseverance’ and learning from mistakes. All children will be encouraged to participate through verbal (paired talk) and non-verbal means (whiteboards, show me activities) as this develops an inclusive environment where everyone can achieve.

Children are encouraged to be independent, reflective and responsible for their learning and teachers build strategies to help the children to evaluate their own work and others work so that they can identify their successes and next steps.

Children will develop important skills that transcend subject disciplines and enable them to excel in life: problem solving, analysing and synthesising information; creativity and showing personal expression; research skills; aural, oral and written communication; leadership, teamwork and collaboration so they can flourish whilst at school and beyond.

By prioritising equitable learning experiences, every very child at Chestnut Park will know the feeling of success. By recognising each child’s unique and personal learning journey we prioritise their needs and remain unwavering in our ambitions for them.

Within a limitless education, we are incredibly optimistic and determined to see every child maximise their potential to achieve. ‘Learning without Limits’ is central to our approach. Entwined in our ‘Limitless’ approach are the following features:

  • Our attitude, approach and expectations will be limitless.
  • We will embrace individuality and personalise ambitious opportunities.
  • Prior learning and next steps will be carefully planned to guarantee achievement.
  • Pupil outcomes will be exceptional because themed enquires are led by developmental goals.
  • Practice is driven by educational research to ensure positive impacts.

We will celebrate all children’s individual achievement and welcome parents to support us in Staring their children’s success both in and beyond school. We will promote pride in personal and collective achievement and ensure that all pupils know the feelings that success evokes, especially when shared with others.

Children at Chestnut Park will leave primary school believing anything is possible. They will be goal focused, action orientated, naturally ambitious and self-determined. They will know the feeling of success throughout their learning and demonstrate pride in the outcomes they have created and we are proud of them all.

Heart Values

Pupil’s aspirations will be further developed through our HEART values as they become genuinely kind and inspirational individuals:

H - Honesty

E - Empathy

A - Appreciation

R - Respect

T - Trustworthy

Through our curriculum, we will develop the essential knowledge, skills and understanding to ensure children are fully prepared to be lifelong learners. Children’s natural curiosity will be fostered through creative, active and enquiry based experiences that excite and challenge. Children will have first-hand experiences that enable them to be independent, resilient and successful learners.

School Mission

Chestnut Parks mission is to “provide an extraordinary education, value individuality and prepare children with the knowledge, skills and values to be lifelong learners in an ever changing world.”
