Open Futures Statement of Intent

South Hiendley has been part of Open Futures since 2008 and we have achieved the Open Futures Level 3 quality standard. In the past we were invited to become an Ambassador for Open Futures which enabled us to work with other schools around the country.

  • Open Futures has:
    • Enriched the curriculum offered to the children;
    • Helped children and adults in school develop new skills; created opportunities for team work, cooperation and perseverance;
    • Taught us how to grow things, cook, film and think carefully.

      Aims of Open Futures at South Hiendley Primary School

We aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • raise attainment in Literacy, Numeracy, Science and ICT by working in context on work appropriate to pupils of all abilities
  • ensure children have appropriate skills, attitudes and confidence to become active independent learners
  • involve and support parents in strategies to promote healthy eating
  • increase motivation and thereby improve attendance and behaviour
  • help children make a positive economic contribution to society
  • provide a rich and broad curriculum which includes a wide range of practical activities in and out of school
  • provide opportunities for children to explore the natural world
  • revitalise teachers as creative learners themselves

Open Futures is about joined up thinking and working, right across the curriculum. It is our intent that Open Futures not an 'extra', but a whole school curriculum initiative. It is an alternative way of meeting the learning needs of our children and at the same time providing an opportunity to discover and develop social and practical skills, personal interests and values which will contribute to their education and enhance their adult lives.
