Corporation Road Community Primary School is a school, which is in the centre of Darlington, and at the heart of the community it serves. We want our children and families to understand and form an active part of this
unique community. A community, which already brings together the richness of cultures, beliefs and religions from across the world and we seek to make this grow and be cohesive. We want our children to understand similarities and differences when we compare what we have, to communities past and present, near and far.
We want our children and families to feel a sense of belonging to this unique community of Corporation Road Community Primary School. We want them to embrace the philosophy that kindness and goodness stems from the individual and collectively, as citizens we can work together towards the betterment of the whole community. We want them to know that any small change can bring about an improvement in the life chances
of everyone within school and the wider community. From this starting point, children can begin to influence those around them and begin to understand the importance of belonging and embracing and tolerating the
values and beliefs, of school and the wider community. We want them to begin to understand how communities have grown, adapted and thrived both here and in the wider society and how this may have looked, and looks today.
Gender and Equality
We want all our children to have equal access to resources, opportunities and aspirations, regardless of gender. We want our children to embrace the fact that everyone, regardless of gender have equal value and should be
accorded equal treatment. Our children will learn that irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, class, income, health or disability, religion, values and beliefs, everyone will be treat fairly and equally without discrimination.
Impact and Legacy
We want our children and families to understand and learn about legacies in literature, art, maths science and cultures left behind by key individuals and communities, which have had an impact on the way in which we live
our lives, and influence what we learn, in society today. We want them to develop as citizens and individuals who can, in turn, have an impact on their immediate and wider environment and influence others. We want
them to make their own mark on society knowing they themselves leave behind their own legacy.
Corporation Road Community Primary School and all those within it, will endeavour to deliver a curriculum, which opens the doors and windows on the world, to enable all children to strive to be successful, valued, unique and themselves.
