The future for Albert Bradbeer is very exciting. Our enthusiastic and talented staff aim to make every child’s learning experience enriching and fulfilling. With enjoyment, challenge and creativity at the heart of our newly innovated curriculum, we are committed to ensuring every child reaches their full potential through inspirational learning.
Our team of teachers are dedicated to maximising and building on the continually improving academic results our school has shown over the last few years and are supported by a wealth of experienced support staff and mentors. With an experienced Leadership Team and our innovative partnership with the University of Wolverhampton, our vision is to promote an ethos of success and achievement for all, developing and nurturing the aspirations of our children and supporting them to become the very best that they can be.
Our individually designed Curriculum centres on the belief that children learn better when their interests and fascinations are allowed to flourish, where they are encouraged to explore subjects in a variety of ways and are viewed in terms of their strengths, not their weaknesses. It brings the curriculum to life. Each stage provides opportunities for children to learn new knowledge and skills and respond in a variety of ways. The projects are flexible and able to follow children’s interests and needs. The resources and activities give teachers everything they need to plan each term and create an inspiring environment.
Our curriculum is balanced to ensure that children experience a wide range of subjects and offers children the breadth and depth within lessons so that they learn well and gain cultural capital for their future development.
“Leaders have thought carefully about what they want pupils to learn. They have designed a curriculum that builds pupils’ knowledge and skills over time. Pupils learn about the area of Birmingham they live in and its history. They then move on to learn about other parts of the world.”
Children’s learning and school life does not just happen in the classroom or finish at 3.30pm! Through our “Curriculum Promise”, we offer a wide range of exciting clubs throughout the academic year to capture the interests of all our pupils and support their learning. Our clubs are validated by Children’s University and allow the pupils to work towards earning a certificate at the end of the year. Some of our clubs so far this year include:
We also encourage and support the children “learning through personal experience”, which is why we have an extensive programme of life experiences planned as part of the curriculum. These include Residential trips, visits to museums and Libraries, as well as experiencing examples of rich cultural events and figures.
Our Nursery and Reception offer children a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment in which to learn. Our staff are all experienced Early Years Practitioners who have experience of working in a variety of different settings.
Early Years is a distinct stage and important both in its own right and in preparing children for later schooling. Early Learning Goals set out what most children are expected to achieve by the end of the Foundation Stage.
The Foundation Stage provides children with a wide range of fun, exciting and stimulating experiences, in large and small groups, both indoors and out across the three prime areas of learning and the four specific areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Enjoyment and fun underpins our philosophy for all young children at Albert Bradbeer as we strive to develop their confidence and independence thereby establishing solid foundations for their future learning.
