Visions and Values

Four core values underpin our decisions and actions. These are: courage, curiosity, compassion and creativity. They are incorporated into our school aims below.

 

Aims of the school

We believe that:

  • Children who have courage and self-belief are most likely to achieve their aspirations;

  • Children who are curious about learning will question the world around them and always challenge themselves and others;

  • Children who have compassion will be, and teach others to be, better human beings;

  • Children who are creative will be able to solve the problems of the future.

 

To enable children to achieve these qualities school staff must:

  • Nurture children as individuals and help them recognise what they have to offer as members of society;

  • Motivate and inspire children to achieve the highest standards in basic skills;

  • Ensure children have the opportunity to achieve in all areas of learning  and excel in those in which they have a passion or talent;

  • Provide children with memorable learning experiences.

 

Children will feel:

  • That they have something to offer that is valued;

  • Excited about the learning that is about to take place;

  • Enthralled by the learning taking place;

  • Loaded with further questions that they want to explore;

  • Motivated to talk about their learning outside of the classroom.

 

Classrooms throughout the school will be:

  • Focused;

  • Promoting independent learning;

  • Dynamic;

  • Active;

  • Balanced in their use of play, outdoor adventure, first hand learning, exploration and clerical activity.

 

It is a privilege to lead this exciting and forward- looking school. We hope that you will find this website a useful overview of the school and its ethos and will be a regular visitor.
