There is no more powerful transformative force than education—to promote human rights and dignity, to eradicate poverty and deepen sustainability, to build a better future for all, founded on equal rights and social justice, respect for cultural diversity, and international solidarity and shared responsibility, all of which are fundamental aspects of our common humanity."
Irina Bokova, former Director-General of UNESCO
Effective delivery of an exciting, internationally-minded Curriculum which offers inciting learning ‘hooks’ is essential to all Teaching for Learning throughout Newport Community School Primary Academy. Both the written curriculum and the ‘hidden curriculum’ (what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave) are integral to a pupil’s life at NCSPA, where we aim to provide a broad, balanced and rich curriculum with access and enjoyment for all.
In a region of relative geographical isolation, the Academy feels that it is important that the Global Dimensions of learning form a central strand in the Academy’s curriculum, so that pupils gain a better understanding of the world around them. This focus allows teachers to be internationally-minded and progressive in their planning and teaching.
