Nansledan School will provide a new ethos and direction for primary learning in the Newquay area and we will use the pupils’ own heritage and the enterprising themes of exploration and discovery as a basis for curriculum innovation.
Cornwall has a rich and diverse history and geography in STEAM related subjects. From Richard Trevithick’s invention of the first high powered steam engine to the county’s mining, China Clay and extensive Maritime industries we will ensure access to resources which are free, stimulating and unique in order to bring science, technology, engineering and maths to life in the classroom.
We will make full use of all external expertise available to us, for example in the form of STEM Ambassadors – accredited people with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) backgrounds and skills - who are willing and able to inspire and encourage children and young people in these subjects and related careers.
Strong and active links with the Airport and Enterprise zone, the Services, Cornwall College, Duchy College, the Eden Project, Wave Hub Maritime Technology and Treviglas Community College and Tretherras Newquay, will make a significant contribution in terms of aspiration raising, skills provision and enhanced learning opportunities.
Links with KEAP (Kernow Education Arts Partnership) will provide opportunities for us to extend our cultural offer through unique arts projects that inspire and excite children and teachers and provide an ongoing legacy of enthusiasm, new skills and increased confidence. These will be local and county-wide projects involving multi-disciplinary approach and multi-dimensional skills.
