Ethos

“ACHIEVING, BELIEVING, CARING”

We believe that all the members of our school community are unique and special individuals.  Our school will nurture everyone in their life-long journey to achieve their full and unique potential.  The members of our school will be empowered to take ownership of their role as citizens of the local and global communities.  We will celebrate self-worth, appreciate individual talents and achievements, and strive to understand and empathise with others.  We will demonstrate respect for all. 

Our aim is that all children have the right to a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression, considering individual differences.

In our school we will:

  • maintain high expectations for all
  • cater for the needs of individual children, regardless of sex, ethnicity or social standing, including the most able and those who are experiencing learning difficulties
  • facilitate children’s acquisition of knowledge, skills and qualities which will help them to develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically, morally and aesthetically, so they may become independent, responsible, useful, thinking, confident and considerate members of the community
  • create and maintain an exciting and stimulating learning environment
  • ensure that each child’s education has continuity, progression and is differentiated accordingly
  • strive to provide curricular balance
  • ensure that health and well-being of staff is a priority
  • ensure that all members of staff are involved in leadership
  • continually monitor and evaluate the quality of teaching and learning to identify appropriate priorities for development
  • recognise the crucial role which parents play in their children’s education and make every effort to encourage parental involvement in the educational process
  • treat everyone in a dignified and respectful way
