At Silver Springs we want everyone to shine! We believe that every child has something to offer and that they should be encouraged to share that gift or talent and by doing so encourage others to do the same.
Silver Springs is a school that opens doors for children. From the very beginning in the Foundation Stage, right through until children leave for high school we will provide children with unforgettable experiences that open doors to the wider world, leaving them itching to know more and eager to learn, inspiring them to achieve great things and become great citizens; building the best possible future for the community in which they live.
We believe that children learn best when they are excited and actively engaged, when there is joy in what they are doing and they love learning. Literacy and Maths are the backbone of children's learning, with a strong emphasis on ICT as a cross curricular tool, which both stimulates and facilitates learning at all levels.
Learning is a lifelong process and children learn best where there is true partnership between school and home. We will build these partnerships with parents by sharing information about their child’s progress but most of all by listening. By involving parents and other family members in the life of the school and consulting them in a variety of ways on all aspects of our provision, we will knit the school into the fabric of the community.
We are committed to ensuring that each individual makes the best possible progress and gets the most out of their education, whilst in our care. Learning will therefore be focused on individual pupil’s needs and abilities. The knowledge about individual children gathered from teacher’s observations and assessments will be used to inform the way they are taught.
Moving forward we will encourage innovation in teaching and provide a wide range of opportunities outside school hours to encourage children to try new things, extend their learning, live healthy and active lives and to be proactive in protecting the environment. We will build on our strengths to serve the needs of our children using the skills of everyone in the school. This school will drive its own improvement, to set its own challenging targets recognising that we can always do better and ensuring that there is always a tangible drive to improve and real commitment to quality.
