The Diocese of Durham Board of Education’s vision is to provide excellence and equity for all children in a Christian context. You can read more about the DDBE at www.durham.anglican.org/
The DDBE oversees 51 primary schools across the Diocese of Durham, which stretches from the Tyne to the Tees. DDBE is very experienced in setting up and running schools and currently 94% of its primary schools are judged by Ofsted to be Good or Outstanding.
The vision is to establish Wynyard Church of England Primary School as an excellent school in the heart of the community where children can make rapid academic progress. This will be achieved by fostering a rigorous and dynamic learning environment with a pattern of high aspirations and a culture of success, sound educational practice and established expertise. Our curriculum will ensure coverage of both the Early Years Foundation Phase and the National Curriculum. To find out more about these curriculums please click the links below:
Our Christian emphasis on developing the whole child, including their spiritual development, with the ensuing positive outcomes for personal and educational development, will lie at the heart of our curriculum. Distinctly Christian values will be made explicit and be embedded in our teaching and learning, encouraging every child to realise their full potential in an environment that is supportive and caring, and dedicated to their individual growth and achievement. It is a curriculum that will deliver academic achievement, personal development and well-being for all learners, regardless of their ability or background.
The school’s curriculum will provide all learners with a range of opportunities that will excite and inspire, supporting all children so they can achieve individually and make a positive contribution to society. It will be a curriculum that allows and assists children to succeed and make the best of their talent and ability. Developing leadership and an expectation of service will be a cornerstone of the school. Children will have the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning and supporting that of others, and the chance to contribute to and lead developments in their own community.
The education vision for Wynyard Primary School is influenced by the needs we have identified in the community and underpins the curriculum design for the proposed school. The Diocese has already gained invaluable experience through the successful management over 50 primary schools and this experience has allowed us to analyse the needs of the local community very accurately and inform the design of the proposed curriculum.
Provision for Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
We will provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all children. Provision for children with SEN will be a matter for the school as a whole. When planning, the school will set suitable learning challenges and respond to the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of the children in their class. Some children may have special learning needs and require particular support by the school. We will ensure that the necessary provision is made for any child who has Special Educational Needs with regard to the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice. Meeting the needs of individual children and groups of children will require flexible working with outside agencies. We will record all steps taken to meet the needs of these children and will ensure that the records are kept and available as needed.
