Aspirations


Welcome to our aspirations zone.


We aim to teach and prepare your child today, for their tomorrow!

Within school we aim to inspire pupils to achieve their best and to have high expectations of their future. We encourage pupils to consider:

  • What are they good at?
  • What things are important to them?
  • What do they hope to achieve?
  • What new skills have they developed?

Each pupil was asked to complete an aspiration leaf which included the above considerations, each leaf was used to create our beautiful aspiration display. These leaves will be used to identify role models who can work with our pupils to ensure that they are inspired and informed about the opportunities available outside of school.

As part of a Harry Potter writing project in the autumn term 2017, we asked year 4 pupils to consider the variety of job roles which help to generate a film. Using a visit to Harry Potter studios pupils began to realise that creating a film is a complex process which includes thousands of people. (In the case of Harry Potter approximately 4000)


 In October 2017 pupils were asked to enter a competition run by Primary Futures, where pupils had to draw and describe what career they wanted to do when they were older. We had some really interesting choices from wrestler, to palaeontologist, to astronomer, to midwife and a fashion designer. Below are some examples of our entries and hopefully we will hear back soon if we have any winners

 

 Aspirations Assembly

On Wednesday 15th November Danni and Jade from Lockwood's Animal Hospital in Willenhall came to visit our school, they talked to us about their jobs as veterinary nurses and also bought in 2 special visitors to meet us. Woody, a King Charles spaniel and Kevin a turtle.

Danni and Jade told us about the favourite parts of their jobs and also what kind of things they got up to on a typical day. All of the pupils were very excited to meet Kevin and Woody but also asked Danni and Jade lots of really interesting, well thought out questions. 

Thank you Lockwood's Animal Hospital for our lovely visit!

 Choosing a secondary school

Your class teacher will guide you on the process of applying for a place at your preferred secondary school, we advise you to attend any open evenings so that you can see all of the facilities, meet the teachers and get an idea of the strengths of the school. School websites are a great place to start
