Ethos At Cleves we aim to develop an inclusive community in which each individual feels supported and secure and through which everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed. At Cleves we aim to teach skills, knowledge and understanding which pupils need to lead confident, healthy lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens, through the provision of a broad, balanced curriculum At Cleves, we are all learners, striving to progress and develop. Our aim is to produce well rounded community members at the end of the Cleves experience.
We give the children a wide range of experiences which will enthuse and excite them and thus encourage high quality learning. We have high expectations of all. We believe that our curriculum should prepare children for life in a fast changing society. We place emphasis on the development of six learning behaviours and teach our pupils to be: Independent Learners Self-Managers Effective Participants Creative Thinkers Reflective Learners Team Workers These are qualities that are important through life. They can be developed at home as well as at school and we hope you will help us in this way.
Our curriculum is innovative in that we seek to teach key life skills as well as knowledge. The children know which skills they are striving to develop in their learning and assess their progress at the end of session. Personal development holds equal importance to academic importance at Cleves and you will see a total transformation of your children during their time here. Self esteem is key and we seek to develop this through a variety of activities and a positive attitude. To accompany the six learning behaviours we have identified what we consider five fundamental values which are taught and encouraged in all aspects of school life. These are: Tolerance Respect High Aspirations Working Together Honesty
