Our School Aims


Some of our excellent art work by Year 6 pupils.

We value every child as a special and unique human being who is capable of, and deserves to experience, spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical growth.

Therefore we aim to:

  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant to and based on the child’s own past experiences whilst accommodating different learning styles and needs.

  • To provide a range of high quality learning experiences that will encourage the children to develop as rounded individuals, nurture self-esteem and enable children to reach their full potential.

  • Recognise and celebrate individuality and uniqueness.

  • Give each child a “voice” and a means of communication.

  • Look to the future, and embrace technological advances as opportunities for improving and enhancing the curriculum.

Pupils and staff enjoy learning together. 

We value relationships as fundamental to the successful development and fulfilment of every individual.

Therefore we aim to:

  • Teach children how to listen to one another and encourage them to develop strategies for resolving disputes peacefully.

  • Encourage an ethos that nurtures self-esteem and celebrates diversity.

  • Foster effective teamwork by showing the children how to work and play in different contexts, environments and circumstances.

  • Provide children with appropriate role-models through staff, parents and visitors to school.

  • Promote and reward good behaviour and manners.

  • Promote a real partnership with parents by encouraging them to become involved in their child’s education.

  • Give children opportunities to make choices and respect the choices of others.

We value a society in which people support and care for one another. A society in which children grow into productive and responsible citizens.

Therefore we aim to:

  • Equip our pupils with the life skills that modern society requires and that will enable them to take their place in wider society.

  • Help them to make appropriate choices to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  • Promote the fundamental British values of mutual respect, tolerance, democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law.

  • Encourage the children to see the school as part of the wider community and become involved in issues that affect the local environment and the wider world, taking action where necessary.
