Vision, Aims and Values


To enable every child at Peartree Primary School to reach their full potential by providing a secure, happy and stimulating environment, where learning promotes thoughtful, caring and confident future citizens.

INTENT - Curriculum intentions

The following act as a rationale for the focus and organisation of our curriculum. We remember our curriculum intentions with the acronym SHADOW.

  • To develop safe behaviours both on-line and in day-to-day life.
  • To develop a healthy lifestyle.
  • To develop core reading, writing and mathematical skills, so the majority of pupils reach age related expectations (ARE).
  • To develop an appreciation for Peartree's diverse, inclusive community including a love of language.
  • To develop an appreciation for the outdoor environment, to give breadth to their learning.
  • To develop a love of learning and an inquisitiveness about the world around them.


INTENT - Teaching intentions

Our teaching intentions are research informed. A number of Peartree staff have engaged in and continue to engage in further academic study. This new learning shapes our teaching intentions.


We strive to:

  • explicitly model and scaffold learning, alongside opportunities for exploration;
  • close the word gap with talk, vocabulary development and questioning;
  • establish an environment and ethos in which every child can learn;
  • develop continuous formative assessment, with deliberate feedback;
  • develop self-efficacy, a growth mindset and a questioning mind;
  • provide appropriate challenge and support to meet individual’s memory needs.

'Pupils’ preparation for life in modern Britain is good because the school’s values, such as ‘respect’, fully incorporate British values. Pupils demonstrate a good understanding because they practise these values in the daily life of the school. Discussions with visiting politicians help them understand ‘democracy’. '
