A Golden Message from our Headteacher, Mr Flathers
Goldbeaters is part of a federation of two fantastic schools which are located only half a mile away from each other. This is a large learning community that functions in what is best described as a ’brother/sister’ relationship. We are very close and we are a large very happy family!
I have been lucky enough to be part of the recent history and success of both schools. In 2004, Goldbeaters became a modern, dynamic school with a whole new approach to learning. The Golden Way was born! Every year, we see our children learning happily and, of course, succeeding. This positive approach, combined with the dedication of our fabulous staff team, make this school special and unique.
We aim to provide a primary school education with a difference. Learning here is a special experience and not just a series of lessons broken up by playtime. Our learning adventure inspires our children to be kind, caring individuals with high aspirations, and the children enjoy learning, achieving very high standards in the essential academic areas of reading, writing and maths. They learn plenty more under the heading of World Learning, which covers those incredibly exciting areas of computing, design and technology, art, geography, religious education and physical education. Pupils’ talents are identified from the age of five and nurtured through Smart Learning in our Champions Academy. We help the children to become musicians, sports people and artists!
Goldbeaters also provides many fantastic and exciting experiences for our children beyond the norm. These include the participation in 33 sporting events during 2016, partnering with musicians, artists and writers. Our learning experience includes two major Festivals - GO FEST a summer 6 week cultural event and Word Up which is an 8 week literary festival during the winter days.
Primary school should have a dynamic impact on children’s lives; it should help them develop into great people. We believe in "amazing" and we make it happen.This is our quest across the federation of Goldbeaters and The Orion!
Our children love their school and describe it as “fun", "golden", "caring" and "simply the best”. That’s the way it should be for today’s young people!
