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:
Promoting independent learning;
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.
