Welcome to Driffield School Online. We aim to provide valuable and important information for students, parents, staff and friends of the school. Please contact us with any ideas for the website and with any articles about the school that we may be able to publish. Any observations regarding design, content and ease of use would also be most welcome, using our comments page.



It is more important than ever that schools have a clear vision for the future. The responsibility of preparing the next generation with the knowledge, skills, sense of morality and spiritual awareness to take up the challenges of the new Millennium is awesome.

At Driffield School we are aiming for continuous improvement and to do even more effectively what we already do well. We believe in a climate of educational innovation whilst being conscious of the pressures upon staff, who remain our most important and valuable resource.

This document contains the achievement targets for the 2002 to 2005 cohorts at Driffield School, in the format in which we are legally required to publish them. More importantly, it clearly provides a context under which they will be achieved. We believe it to be unique.

We are already an excellent school. Together, we will become an outstanding school.


Our core function is to provide the highest possible quality of teaching and learning for all students of all abilities in all areas of the curriculum to maximise the potential of every student.

We aim to build a school where the talent of the teacher and the power of information technology combine with the excitement of the developing mind in empowering the teacher and student to improve educational outcomes.

Our aim should always be to improve against our previous best at individual, team and whole school levels. This includes all partners to the educational process at Driffield School - students, staff, parents, governors and the community. We must all have high expectations of ourselves and of everyone around us.

Finally, we recognise that our school is part of a wider educational community and that we all never stop learning. We are committed to working positively with all our primary schools to ensure appropriate progression and in partnership with other providers at secondary, further and higher levels of education. We are a learning community, committed to lifelong learning.

In specific terms this means that by the time they leave Driffield School every student should :

Have striven to fulfil his or her highest potential, whatever that may be and in whatever areas.

Be equipped to succeed in further and higher education, training or employment.

Understand the importance of community and be prepared for responsible citizenship

Have become an autonomous learner with a desire for and love of learning.

Have high self-esteem and have a confidence in his or her own identity.

Have a pride in his or her achievements and in Driffield School.

Have an awareness of the context of Britain within a European and World Community, with all the challenges and opportunities which this offers.

To support the achievement of these aims, staff at Driffield School should :

Have an entitlement to professional support, development and guidance.

Have unfailingly high expectations of students and of themselves.

Have their professional skills and expertise recognised and valued.

Have their achievements and contributions celebrated

To support the achievement of these aims, governors at Driffield School should :

Seek to provide an operational framework that places maximum support and resources on the teaching and learning process in the classroom.

Campaign for additional resources and support for Driffield School externally as appropriate.

Seek to invest in people as our most valuable resource.

To support the achievement of these aims, parents at Driffield School should :

Have high expectations of their child(ren) and of Driffield School.

Support the educational process through encouraging homework, attending Parents’ Evenings, ensuring that their child(ren) arrive at school equipped to learn and maximise attendance.

Seek to work in partnership with the school for the benefit of students and the wider community, signing the Driffield Home School Agreement.

Be given opportunities to become involved more fully in school life via the “Driffield School Association”.
