We aim for our school to be “A place where all succeed”
We believe our school is a place where:
· Children feel safe, secure and happy within a caring ethos and climate of mutual trust which values all members of the school and encourages a pride in personal contribution.
· Children are treated as individuals and are allowed to progress at their own level in a stimulating environment to develop to their maximum potential.
· Children are challenged, encouraged to experiment and to learn through first hand experience.
· There is no fear of failure.
We promote high expectations, high standards, and seek to provide children with quality experiences and a quality environment in which to work.
We offer opportunities for children to make choices, take decisions and express their own points of view fluently.
Children are encouraged to be independent learners, but are also offered opportunities to learn with others and develop enquiring minds.
Individuals develop a positive self-image, increase their self-esteem and are encouraged to succeed.
We recognise that the local environment is an important source of first hand learning experiences for all children.
We acknowledge that parents are the first educators of our children and seek to build on this foundation.
We seek to ensure that all individuals have full access to the whole range of opportunities on offer in school, including access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is relevant to the needs of each individual.
Parents, governors and other members of the community are welcome in school and are encouraged to take an active involvement in all aspects of school life.
Our agreed main aim for this school is to achieve for all pupils:
· the development of a lively enquiring mind through an environment which fosters enthusiasm, curiosity, the ability to observe, question and discuss;
· the acquisition and application of the basic skills of language, numeracy and science as part of the achievement of a broad and balanced curriculum;
· the development of awareness of values and social skills, sharing concern for other people, while developing self discipline, acceptable behaviour and positive attitudes towards themselves and others;
· the development of respect and understanding for religious beliefs and moral values and valuing people of other races, religions and ways of life.
