Aims and Values
The staff and governors work in partnership to:
Create a happy, healthy school in which every child feels valued.
Provide a caring, secure and stimulating environment in which to educate each child intellectually, spiritually, morally, socially, emotionally and physically.
Recognise and nurture the special talents of each child, removing potential barriers to learning enabling him/her to be creative, experience success and achieve as much as possible before moving on to the next stage of education with confidence and a love of learning.
Ensure that all teaching is of a high standard, enabling children to make good progress in all subjects, and provide a curriculum which is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated to meet each child’s needs.
Have high expectations of both achievement and behaviour, encouraging children to take increasing responsibility for their own learning and behaviour.
Provide equality of opportunity for all children, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, creed, culture, physical disability or special educational need.
Encourage a sense of responsibility and caring for the environment, becoming aware of the global community and of how wider environmental issues may involve them.
Help children to become self-motivated and resilient and develop a positive attitude towards learning so that they can respond to challenges and apply themselves to tasks with self-discipline and perseverance.
Involve parents in their children’s education and encourage strong links between home and school.
Foster an ethos in which children co-operate with each other, develop an understanding of right and wrong, and feel and show respect and tolerance towards others, including those whose views and beliefs may be different from their own.
