Our aim is for each individual in the school community, regardless of gender, race, culture and background, to reach their full potential in an inclusive environment where happiness and security are a priority.
High expectations in teaching, learning and behaviour are reflected in the excellence and enjoyment at the centre of our vision.
Working together in an honest and respectful partnership is the way forward.
The vision of a school relates to its aims for the children and the ethos of the environment in which those aims are met.
Our aims are simple. In partnership with parents and governors we wish to offer the best education we can in terms of knowledge, skills, concepts and relationships.
We must give every opportunity for a wide variety of meaningful learning experiences. We will develop the skills and talents of the children to enable them to access information. Also to solve problems and effectively communicate their findings to others. We must teach them how to make decisions and, in making these decisions to appreciate the needs of others. We must be sure that the children are making proper progress at all stages of their educational development and in all areas of the curriculum.
Children must be part of an environment where they can be stretched to the full extent of their potential and responsibility.
Discipline within the School relies heavily on the ability of all staff, both teaching and support staff, to develop good relationships with each other and the children, and on the children's ability to exercise self-discipline. Children who feel cared for will generally care in return and will wish to please teachers and others by behaving in an acceptable manner.
We aim to create an environment where high standards are the norm and where consideration for others is manifest in our relationships. School days should be happy days when children can enjoy the company of their peers within the calm and ordered atmosphere; a time where all can experience the pleasure of acquiring knowledge and the success of mastering new skills and developing new talents.
We want children to have confidence in their abilities, to be able to make use of all that society has to offer. We want school to be a microcosm of the kind of community they will seek for themselves as adults. We want children to come out of school sensible, respectful, happy and well adjusted.
