All learning at Hope Community School, Northfleet will reflect the importance of developing the whole child. We will create an engaging curriculum which inspires and excites pupils, resulting in oustanding learning outcomes.
The ethos of our school is based around developing adventure, openness, creativity, excellence and values in our children. In line with original vision for Hope project based learning is planned for EYFS and will develop through the school as it grows. We believe learning should be engaging and challenging. At Hope, we integrate learning holistically with ‘real life’ and the community across all subjects.
The thread of Christian values including respect, hospitality, generosity, care for others, community and putting others before yourself will be at Hope’s core, central to everything, every day and will enhance the moral, social, intellectual and spiritual life of the school. These values will be explored further during planned PSHE learning, during Collectives and when visitors come to the school. We include everyone, irrespective of faith or anything else.
Teaching and Learning at Hope Community School will be driven by high expectation. Inspirational teaching will motivate the aspiring learner and foster in them success and achievement for the future.
We expect high academic achievement for our pupils to raise aspirations and realise their potential. Whilst all schools want this, those that succeed have a culture of embedding a growth mind set, something we not just recognise but aim to achieve.
Developing a child’s character matters as much as his or her academic attainment, to ensure resilience in the face of increased challenge.
