Amotherby Community Primary School


Our vision, Active - Aspire - Achieve, forms the foundations of our curriculum.  Through engaging topics, we aim to develop our children into life-long learners, immersing them in the topics and subjects that they are learning.  As far as possible, cross-curricular links will be made allowing children to transfer the knowledge and skills that they have to a range of tasks.  This then develops further with links made across year groups ensuring children have the opportunity to review and build upon previous learning.  


At Amotherby, we firmly believe that reading is at the core of all learning.  We place great importance on developing our children as readers through access to quality texts.  Our younger pupils who are just starting their reading journey, have access to a wide range of phonetically decodable books that will help them with their phonic recognition.  Currently, we use 'Letters and Sounds' for phonics supplemented with a wide range of books. Once our children are able to read confidently, they have access to a range of wonderful books that we seek to constantly update.  Alongside individual readers, children are read to on a regular basis in class and have constant access to high quality texts through the school library and guided reading texts.  Our aim is to ensure our children enjoy reading, seeing the benefits and wonderful opportunities reading can offer.


Each subject leader has developed a 'vision' for their subject.  This is deeply rooted in the school vision and provides a clear intent detailing what we would like all our children to achieve in the subject along with the implementation stating how this will be achieved, and the impact that this will have on our pupils. Through this vision statement, teachers are able to ensure they enable children to reach the high expectations we set for all.
