Children at Gordon are enthusiastic and keen to learn new knowledge and skills. Staff strive to provide a range of rich, inclusive learning experiences in all aspects of school life. They nurture our learners and improve their academic, emotional, moral, cultural and physical development. Our curriculum teaches pupils to become independent thinkers who will be able to approach challenges with resilience and compassion. It is designed to broaden our children’s horizons and empower them to be curious about the world around them.
Staff know that children get one chance at education and ensure that our curriculum and lessons build sequentially and plan for key learning to be frequently recalled and then built upon. Staff ensure that pupils’ time in school is maximised and that learning time is fully utilised.
Gordon Children’s Academy is at the heart of the community and children are taught to be active citizens. They will learn to appreciate how diversity positively impacts on society and how they can respectfully fulfil their responsibilities within the community. Our children are friendly, courteous and kind. They will be given the chance to explore a range of roles and responsibilities across the year groups. We are aspirational for our children and staff encourage them to embrace opportunities for them to be their best self.
The school will provide the children with a range of experiences and activities to explore where their strengths and interests lie. Through these, children build their knowledge of opportunities that exist, both in our locality and beyond. This knowledge will enhance and transform life chances.
All staff at The Gordon Children’s Academy are passionate about caring for and respecting the fantastic children of our school.
Above all we want the children of our school to be happy, safe, have fun and enjoy being here as we know that children learn best when they are in an environment which makes them feel contented and safe.
There are high expectations of behaviour and everyone in the school community has a responsibility for maintaining a relaxed, calm and happy atmosphere. We recognise that all behaviour is communication and that it is our responsibility to listen to the children, verbally or by interpreting their behaviour.
Throughout the school, we will nurture your child’s social development. Providing them with the skills which will enable them to be polite, confident, hardworking members of society.
We want to make learning irresistible so that your child comes to school every day happy and eager to learn. We know that children are naturally inquisitive. We aim to develop this curiosity by providing a curriculum that is based on relevant first hand experiences and that engages and inspires the children. Challenges will be provided at the correct developmental level.
We have an ethos of high expectations, where every child flourishes intellectually, personally and morally. We teach our children to be successful independent learners who concentrate, persevere, take risks and have a willingness to make mistakes. We want all our children to make accelerated progress and achieve well.
