Ensure that the individual child is at the centre of everything we do. The curriculum, teacher preparation, and classroom design is planned with the specific social, emotional, and intellectual needs of the children in mind. Each curriculum programme is age and developmentally appropriate and designed to inspire pupils, families and teachers alike. There will be a high degree of accountability for academic and financial results.
Provide the best possible teaching and learning experience by looking at how things could be done differently and better. We will concentrate on improving standards and use of technology throughout the school at a rapid pace, and improve the quality of teaching and learning through the introduction of a comprehensive staff training programme.
Provide more opportunities to make sure every pupil achieves the very best that they can; TGS’s focus will be on working with senior leaders and teachers to raise achievement through quality teaching, curriculum innovation, online assessment programmes, increased attendance and individualised pathways for personal growth and development.
Provide more choice by using local, national and international resources from within the Aurora group. We will be working with partners both locally and internationally, meaning that pupils will enjoy a wider range of learning and leisure experiences at school.
Raise aspirations through the introduction of a new philosophy and ethos, based on Mosaica Education’s proven philosophy used internationally, to bring educational improvements to schools, pupils and communities worldwide. All pupils will have individualised paths for personal growth and development, with a focus on pupil self-awareness and self-esteem.
Increase Parent engagement and involvement through regular community events will be held where parents and other members of the local community are invited to see what the children have been learning, chat with staff and become more engaged in their child’s education.
