Our Statement of Intent

At Glebe Primary School and Nursery, our curriculum is knowledge rich with our values of: Leadership, Excellence, Ambition, Resilience and Norms underpinning and enhancing the culture of our learning. Our pupils are brave, curious and respectful who take pride in achieving exceptional outcomes. Their thirst for learning is exemplified through their ability to make links between, and build upon, prior learning.  They have an unrelenting passion for knowledge and support each other with compassion, kindness and an overall sense of belonging to our community. We aim for them to have a depth of understanding across the curriculum by broadening horizons and improving their life chances. Life-long learning habits form the foundation on which our curriculum is built. We achieve this by creating a culture of every subject that is learnt, exposing pupils to real life opportunities and concepts; exposing them to wide ranging and knowledge specific vocabulary.

At Glebe Primary School, we grow the next generation of Scientists, Historians, Mathematicians and more. We believe that within our community lives the next Doctor Maggie Aderin-Pocock; Tom Daly or JK Rowling!

Computing Statement of Intent:

Computing and E-safety

The Primary National Curriculum for Computing explains that children are entitled to high-quality computing teaching which equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world of computing. The core teaching in Computing is computing science where pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to implement this through the use of programming. Building on this, pupils are encouraged to use information technology to create programs, system and a range of content. Computing ensures that pupils become digitally literate, to enable them to play an active part in their future workplace and endeavours. 

At Glebe Primary, we use ‘Purple Mash’ as the basis of our weekly computing lessons. This is then adapted based on the needs and interests of our pupils within each cohort. Each half term has a different focus, shared by all the year groups but with progressively more complex outcomes and contexts. 


E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We also want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.

You can download the DfE advice for parents on e-safety here.

At Home

As a parent you’ll know how important the internet is to children – they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves.  It’s a highly creative place of amazing opportunities. But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online – such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content. 

You can download a simple checklist below that may help you start to protect your children online and decrease the risks they face. Or you can engage with your children regarding their use of the internet while at home.  Here are some conversation starter ideas from www.childnet.com

  • Ask your children to tell you about the sites they like to visit and what they enjoy doing online.
  • Ask them about how they stay safe online. What tips do they have for you, and where did they learn them? What is OK and not OK to share?
  • Ask them if they know where to go for help, where to find the safety advice, privacy settings and how to report or block on the services they use.
  • Encourage them to help. Perhaps they can show you how to do something better online or they might have a friend who would benefit from their help and support.
  • Think about how you use the internet as a family. What could you do to get more out of the internet together and further enjoy your lives online

At the start of the school year, each class discusses how we can all stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. For more information you can download our E-safety policy and see additional resources below.

Our PSHE/RSE Intent:

Our curriculum is designed with your child’s wellbeing and development in mind. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Celebrating Differences: We believe in the power of diversity. Our curriculum celebrates the unique qualities and experiences that make each child special. Through engaging activities and discussions, we teach children to appreciate and respect differences.

  2. Exploring Influential Figures: We introduce children to inspiring individuals from diverse backgrounds who have made a positive impact on the world. By learning about these role models, children gain insight into different cultures and perspectives.

  3. Understanding Protected Characteristics: We help students understand the protected characteristics outlined in the Equality Act 2010. Through age-appropriate discussions, we promote equality and challenge discrimination in all its forms.

  4. Promoting Inclusion and Tolerance: Our goal is to create an inclusive and supportive environment where every child feels valued and accepted. Through collaborative learning and respectful dialogue, we foster a culture of tolerance and empathy.

Our PSHE and RSE curriculum, underpinned by the SCARF scheme, is designed to empower children to become confident, compassionate, and respectful members of society. Together, we can nurture a community where diversity is celebrated, and everyone feels welcome.
