Welcome

Our site provides up to date information on the school, its aims, curriculum and activities and provides an additional form of communication to our community. It is designed to help you if you are considering The Endeavour as a school for your child, or to be a guide to you if you are already part of the school.

At The Endeavour we share our parents’ concerns for the education and well being of their children and can confidently say that the school has a happy, caring and industrious atmosphere. You will notice that education at The Endeavour is more than the core curriculum because we are also totally committed to developing the creative, physical, emotional and social side of all our children.

On this site we can provide only a brief picture of the range of activities, resources and opportunities we make available to our children. We can tell you about the curriculum, our aims, activities and successes, but we cannot convey our ethos or atmosphere. The best way to make an informed decision is to visit, preferably during the school day. I am very proud of The Endeavour School and always find it a pleasure to show parents round.

Mission Statement

We seek to develop the intellectual, physical, moral and social potential of every pupil in the school, always encouraging them to work towards achieving their personal best.

The school is an inclusive society committed to an education and environment that provides equal opportunity for all regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual preference, class or disability.  Individual needs are addressed through a broad and balanced curriculum.  Our pupils are encouraged to become responsible citizens, able to effectively express their needs, thoughts and feelings and able to respond appropriately to the demands of living in the community.

We aim to extend the opportunities for pupils to experience learning and social experiences in other schools and the wider community.  Through Community Learning in Partnership we also support the needs of students, parents and staff from other schools and organisations within our community.

We work in partnership with parents and pupils to give the best care and education possible to enable all to share hopes and concerns.  It is our sincere aim that pupils will feel valued and, in turn, will value themselves and others.

CURRICULUM

Main Aim
The curriculum is designed to provide for all students, in a safe and secure environment conducive to learning, the opportunities to:

  • Experience a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum which encourages them to fulfil their potential.
  • To develop their ability to enquire, discover, think and reason in order to become independent learners and be able to make responsible decisions. 
  • Develop in each pupil a sense of responsibility, self confidence and self worth.
  • Progress with confidence to the next stage of their life and education through a process which encourages them to engage in life-long learning.
  • Prepare for adult working life and to become an effective citizen caring for the community with respect, harmony and tolerance.
  • Develop for themselves an active and healthy lifestyle.
