This term we have allocated a large number of Staff training sessions to review our school Vision, Values and the curriculum that we provide at Albany in line with the recommendations from Professor Donaldson’s Review – Successful Futures. The four core purposes of the curriculum recommended by Professor Donaldson are to develop ‘ambitious, capable learners, healthy confident individuals, enterprising, creative contributors and ethical, informed citizens’.
The children on the school council have recently developed a learning questionnaire for all pupils in the school to gather feedback on how children like to learn, favourite subjects etc.. We intend on using feedback from these to help shape future learning in Albany Primary School.
This year we have also started using the Digital Competence Framework across the school. This has increased opportunities for pupils to use ICT skills across the curriculum including World War 1 coding, using QR Codes in Year 2's Fire Fire exhibition and Superhero Green Screen in Year 1.
