School Life

Life at Silverdale offers a wide variety of opportunities and activities to suit every learner.

We pride ourselves on offering opportunities to grow, build new skills and have fun for every child; both inside and outside of our classrooms. Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, learning new skills to enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year. Our children leave the academy with a sense of belonging to a tight knit community, where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.

The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of the core values of our society are woven through our curriculum. We want excellence for our pupils and their families, our staff, and our academy community. We believe that education transforms lives, which is why our academy has a rich curriculum to ensure that pupils meet their potential and are inspired to continue learning. We work with integrity. We recognise the unique character of our academy and tailor the support we provide to suit the needs of our pupils. We respect all cultures and beliefs, and believe in honesty and openness. Innovation is key. We strive to always improve. Our pupils’ experience is enriched by the ambitious and creative curriculum that we deliver.

Our outdoor environment and the local community are considered an opportunity for active learning for all our pupils. The academy grounds have been extensively developed so they can enrich different curriculum areas. Pupils have opportunities to share their learning with each other, their parents and carers and other learners through academy organised events. This develops their independence, resilience and motivation as learners and also their sense of responsibility as future citizens.
