OUR VISION

Our school values every child and will work to ensure that each child feels proud of who they are and of their achievements. Within this supportive ethos, we will provide a broad, balanced, enriched and thinking curriculum for all our children. We aim to celebrate successes in all areas of school life, academic or not; motivating the children to become lifelong learners. Each child will be given every opportunity and challenge to achieve their full potential in a happy, secure, family atmosphere and stimulating, vibrant, inclusive environment. We will support each child in meeting their challenges and strive to promote independent learning by providing an environment in which children can learn from their mistakes and build on successes. Each individual’s self-esteem is recognised as being at the heart of the learning process.

Development of the whole child and of their self-confidence and efficacy will be at the core of our aims. We aim to provide first-hand experience of learning outside the classroom to help make subjects more vivid and interesting for pupils and enhance their understanding. We aim to be the lead learner in the community, offering outstanding opportunities to maximise the learning potentials of pupils, ensuring excellent teaching and learning strategies are used to have the greatest impact on pupils attainment, achievement and well-being.

We have the best interest of the pupils and staff at heart. Learning should be fun! Everyone in the school community should feel appreciated, with an ethos of trust, openness and evaluative dialogue, where pupils and staff to feel valued, respected and listened to. We need to have high expectations of ourselves and the pupils.

Staff development will ensure a highly developed team that will respond to the challenges of school life with dedication, commitment and professionalism. Staff will feel trusted, valued and respected, emphasising the school as a community of learners on all levels. The school will maintain its place at the centre of the community, being viewed with a sense of pride by all who recognise that the future of our community and society at large rests in the investment we make in our children.
