Ethos & Values

Our aim is that children should enjoy their time at school. They should experience success, be healthy and safe, be challenged and stimulated, develop self-confidence and self-discipline and become confident, well-balanced individuals who areĀ tolerant of others and well motivated.

The objectives of the school are that children will…

  • Have the best possible health and development opportunities, so that they are able to start making choices about a healthy lifestyle;
  • Be safe, feel safe and be increasingly able to make decisions about risk;
  • Be eager, excited, curious, creative and engaged learners;
  • Achieve the highest standards of personal and academic attainment in relation to their age and ability, and recognise their achievements;
  • Be confident, happy and able to cope with the ups and downs of life;
  • Be able to relate positively to others by communicating clearly and being able to question, enquire and develop ideas;
  • Be contributing to their world by being self-reliant, tolerant and cooperative.

To meet these objectives the school will:

  • Provide a safe and healthy learning environment;
  • Provide pupils with teaching of high quality;
  • Provide pupils with a curriculum which meets their needs and the requirements of the National Curriculum;
  • Manage available resources efficiently.
