School Brochure

Welcome to Framwellgate Moor Primary School and thank you for choosing our school. We 
know that both you and your child will be very happy with us. Our staff work incredibly hard 
to ensure your child’s potential is fulfilled and are eager to develop partnerships with you for 
your child’s education.


At FMPS our school motto is ‘Forever Making Pupils Shine’ and this statement pervades all areas 
of school life and the curriculum. We aim to inspire pupils and instil a love of learning that will 
last a lifetime. Children will develop skills and knowledge to support them in all areas of their 
life and build upon these solid foundations and maximise their potential.


So what do we want for our Learners?

The curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first-hand relevant 
learning experiences, allow the children to develop a wide range of learning skills and depth of 
knowledge, build confidence, independence, resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within 
our diverse school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of skills, 
knowledge, concepts and values with a vision for all to ‘Let pupils shine’. We constantly provide 
enrichment opportunities to engage learning. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is an 
enthusiasm for new experiences and knowledge. We use our school core values 
(Fair, Resilient, Ambitious, Mindful, Welcoming, Empathic, Loyal, Listeners, Generous, Active & 
Healthy, Tolerant, Equal) to promote positive attitudes to learning together, encouraging all to 
be respectful of themselves and others as well as being active citizens both locally and globally.

Opportunities for personal Achievement

At Framwellgate Moor Primary School we provide opportunities for our Learners to:
• Develop their resilience and confidence
• Experience a range of achievements in the classroom and beyond
• Take on challenges
• Work closely with organisations
• Have their voices heard

We look forward to a long and happy journey with you.


Mrs. B Smith
