To create a happy and secure learning environment, in which all pupils can achieve their full potential to the best of their ability and where all members of the school Community live with respect for each other, within a Christian framework.
Each aim is in itself a priority and this is therefore not to be considered as a graded list.
1 To ensure all pupils are provided with an effective and relevant education to equip them for life.
2 To promote, through our curriculum, a holistic approach to life skills and learning.
3 To celebrate the achievements of all pupils in an atmosphere of enjoyment and trust.
4 To develop in children a positive sense of moral responsibility and self-discipline.
5 To foster a sense of belonging to the school and the community.
6 To develop in our pupils a spiritual awareness and an awe of the Universe.
7 To help children to learn to live together, with mutual respect and support, irrespective of colour, creed or gender.
8 To ensure equal access for all, to all aspects of school life.
9 To ensure that the Governors, Parents and Staff build a real partnership of trust for the benefit of the children.
10 To develop in children a lifelong love of learning.
The specific objectives, which further these aims, will be found in subject policies and are integral to the schemes of work and lesson plans.
