At Butts Primary, we are proud of our broad and balanced curriculum. The school has the motto 'One school, one community' and this is the intent behind the curriculum. Inclusion, diversity, equity and well-being are the key values that over arch our curriculum's intent.
The curriculum is based on knowledge and skills and is packed with exciting topics, creative arts, diversity, fun and a commitment to an inclusive attitude towards all pupils and furthermore a commitment to our local community.
Topics are largely cross-curricular, with Reading and Writing being based around novels.
Extra-curricular provision is well planned to maximise pupil participation, enjoyment and support the whole curriculum. School offers a high quality and broad range of sports after school, during lunch time and PE. Pupils participate in a range of competitive sports. Pupils are encouraged to join the School Council, and take other leadership roles in school. Many pupils are offered tuition and peer mentoring. School is also part of a Federation project leading to the Artsmark.
In addition, there is well-planned timetable of enrichment, which is often linked to novels, special days etc. School is part of the Walsall Diversity Linking project, enabling pupils to mix and work with other pupils from different cultural backgrounds. This has been very effective and enjoyable.
Safeguarding is both our strength and priority. Keeping pupils safe and aware of dangers is very important to us. Pupils are well trained in all aspects of keeping themselves safe including prevent, online safety and workshops provided by NSPCC. Our designated team offer a safe place for pupils to talk.
We are an inclusive school and offer a curriculum that meets the needs of ALL pupils. SEND pupils are assessed quickly and supported by precise targeted teaching. All pupils are expected to make good progress with quality first teaching.
Working with the local community is very important to us. School works with Ablewell Food bank; it is a linked partner with WHG (Walsall Housing Group). It has links with both Walsall College, Wolverhampton University, QM High School and local places of worship.
Gaining knowledge of our local community, wider and global community is important to us. Pupils are encouraged to develop a better understanding of current affairs and listen to different viewpoints on current weekly topics. They then have the opportunity to debate, form their own opinions and vote.
We believe in supporting our community and encourage, signpost parents to courses which may help them to in supporting their children or gaining new skills/qualifications.
Parents are welcome in school and work alongside their children during topic afternoons, join us for assemblies and support fetes, shows and other school events. Please have a look at the Community Film that we have made:-
