Parents

It is our aim to provide a broad, creative, thematic curriculum in response to Government strategies and to promote Quality First Teaching.

 

At Messing Primary School we believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool that promotes a love of learning, a willingness to explore and the time to have fun. We use the National Curriculum as a starting point for a wide and varied learning experience for our children. We enrich it with our strong ethos based on respect for ourselves and others, equality and a sense of wonder at the world we live in. We are committed to developing the whole child. Our children will have the opportunity to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically challenged.

 

We are continually reviewing and improving the curriculum we offer to our children. The curriculum at Messing Primary School is evolving according to the needs of our children and to the aspirations of the staff and community.

 

The vision at Messing Primary is to offer personalised learning so that each child has the opportunity to achieve their very best. “Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day”.

GIFTED AND TALENTED PUPILS

We currently have 20% of our pupils identified as gifted or talented. Our Partnership with New Hall School means that we are able to provide additional lessons and coaching to challenge and develop our gifted and talented pupils.

  • Our talented artists have the opportunity to work with gifted students and specialist staff from New Hall School to develop their skills further.
  • Our exceptionally gifted footballer has recently signed with Ipswich Town following offers from four top football academies.
  • Our skilled scientists have joined in with science learning with New Hall pupils and the children have received specialist teaching from their science department both at New Hall School and at Messing Primary.
  • Our high achievers in sport have many opportunities to develop their skills through additional clubs and training at the school as well as regularly taking part in competitive competitions against local schools. Specialist coaches from New Hall School also support with challenging pupils to improve and achieve.

Through our broad curriculum, wide range of clubs, booster sessions, Partnership with New Hall School and links with local schools, pupils are given the opportunity to develop their interests in a wide range of areas which they may then wish to develop further.

  • Languages and intercultural understanding are promoted through our teaching of Spanish to all KS2 pupils. Visits have taken place from New Hall pupils who are from other countries and New Hall language specialists provide taster sessions in languages such as Latin and Mandarin which pupils may wish to follow up on.
  • Music tuition is available for pupils who wish to learn an instrument and specialist music teaching provided by New Hall School takes place on a weekly basis. Those pupils with a particular musical talent can therefore be identified and encouraged to pursue this further.
  • Able mathematicians have the opportunity to extend their problem solving skills through our thinking skills club.

Our gifted pupils are working at a level above their peers in at least one area of the curriculum. Talented pupils are those who have been identified as having a particular talent in the arts or sport.
