Please take some time to look around our website. We hope this gives you an insight into the ethos and education at Gorton Primary.
At the heart of our vision is a shared curriculum and approach to teaching and learning across our schools. The International Primary Curriculum and its eight learning goals are deeply embedded across all of our academies – providing both rigour and internationally recognised standards for all pupils.
The goals, which are shared by everyone in our schools, are:
As a trust, we are deeply committed to improving outcomes for all children and supporting schools with a history of underperformance to become both inspirational and safe places in which to learn. We do this by investing in and developing exceptional teachers, leaders and support staff; building strong relationships with parents and our local communities; providing inspirational learning environments; and demonstrating high expectations for every school and every child across the trust.
Our Mission Statement
Building better futures together…
…based on Values
Here at Gorton Primary School we encourage children to understand our values Generosity, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect, Thankfulness, Trust, Perseverance, Justice, Service and Truthfulness. We promote values through the celebrations.
…by nurturing each child’s faith journey
Here at Gorton Primary School we want all our children to grow in their own faith. For our younger children, linking the major festivals gives a structure within which to deepen their knowledge of their own faith story.
…through enabling “Life Long” Learning
Here at Gorton Primary School we promote lifelong learning through the progression of key skills, such as reading and writing but also through developing life experiences such as going to the Post Office.
…by promoting high standards
Here at Gorton Primary School we promote the very highest academic standards, moving from concrete operations, to the abstract ensuring mental agility based on sound practice. All our children learn their times tables in our Assertive Mentoring Programme and old fashioned life skills for a modern child.
…through nurturing enquiring minds
Here at Gorton Primary School we encourage all our children to get a love of learning that takes them beyond the classroom into the wider world. Children are able to investigate and find answers to the questions they have generated. Developing an inquiring mind is a key skill in the promotion of deep learning as well as leading you down new unexplored paths.
…by valuing ourselves and others
Here at Gorton Primary School children are encouraged to go on a path of self-discovery. Children learn how to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development, as well as how to treat and respect others.
…by striving to succeed
Here at Gorton Primary School we work together to overcome any obstacles, however challenging, to achieve our goals. We try and try again, building resilience which helps us deal with any disappointments on our journey to success.
…through the celebration of diversity
Here at Gorton Primary School we believe that our differences make us stronger. Learning from each other, our traditions and our shared history
