This is our mission statement. It underlies how the school is organised and how pupils, staff, parents and governors work together.

  • Our primary purpose is to enhance the quality of learning for all children through the effective planning and efficient delivery of the curriculum.
  • We believe that our first responsibility is to our pupils, to meet their needs and to provide the best possible education.
  • We will provide a range of educational and social experiences appropriate to the age, ability and needs of our pupils.
  • We will have consistently high expectations and support these with appropriate resources and effective learning strategies.
  • We aim to help each child develop a belief in themselves, to learn the value of co-operating with others and have respect and consideration for all.
  • We want parents to view the school and themselves as partners, who are involved in all aspects of their child's education.
  • We will endeavour to create opportunities for every pupil, parent, member of staff and governor to develop their maximum potential.
  • We will manage resources to ensure maximum educational benefit and the best possible value for money.
  • We will create and sustain a learning environment that is stimulating and challenging to children of all abilities.
  • We will adopt a philosophy of continuous improvement in every aspect of the school's work and life.
