Teachers plan and prepare lessons that capture the interests of pupils. Younger pupils’ basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics progress well.

Within GUST Primary, we aim to reengage children with a broad and varied curriculum. Following a thematic approach to learning, we aim to incorporate the National Curriculum objectives with the children’s own interests and the world around them. Using this theme children will have access to a variety of English, Mathematics and ICT activities allowing them to apply skills and knowledge in a variety of ways. Non-core areas of learning will be implemented in the same way in our topic sessions. Children will have access to Music, Art, Drama, Religious Education, Physical Education, History and Geography following in our theme of learning. From September 2020, we will also deliver RSE as part of our PSHE lessons in keeping with national guidance.
We provide a nurturing educational experience that ensures children feel safe and secure in the learning environment. Recognising the importance of social and emotional well being we offer an extensive personal, social, health and emotion curriculum. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible adults, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential.
