Learning

Breaking the boundaries of a homogenous locality, pupils are encouraged to explore the world and learn about themselves and their place in it. Children have daily opportunities to ask questions and to reflect. We are committed to building knowledge and skills and encourage learners to:

  • Have open minds
  • Listen carefully and with consideration
  • Have the courage of their convictions
  • Speak up
  • Negotiate
  • Evaluate
  • Build on the ideas of others
  • Justify with reasons
  • Forgive
  • Empathise and seek to understand
  • Communicate effectively

Learning at Ranvilles facilitates opportunities for learners to explore and identify values, learning today for the challenges of tomorrow. Learning is ambitious and explorative, challenging children to think hard, with open-minds, to push new boundaries and become path makers. Together we focus on discovering what is happening now to enable our pupils to be kind, educated citizens and knowledgeable, compassionate future leaders.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) lines of enquiry and learning are at the heart of learning. Children actively explore global cultural differences, similarities and values. They evaluate, reflect and actively engage in research, discussion, collaborative and individual pursuits to establish considered, personal viewpoints.

Our diverse curriculum provokes deep thought and reflection; core questions linked to Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural learning (SMSC) drive collaboration and a quest for knowledge and understanding. We have designed a curriculum that fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum and meets the needs of the pupils in our school while promoting values of:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
