CHES

Gatton Primary School is committed to delivering a broad and balanced, high quality curriculum provision for all learners. Our schemes of work are well developed to offer a wide range of rich experiences to help achieve the best possible outcomes for our pupils during their time at the school.

We believe children’s personal development and growth is very important. We therefore aim to provide meaningful opportunities for pupils to develop a strong sense of moral purpose and respect for others. They are involved in shaping our provision, being encouraged to build a sense of responsibility for the school, community and the environment.
