Aims and Values

Our Values:

  • That our school is a learning community in which all children and adults are continuously engaged in developing and extending their own learning.
  • We value each individual within the school community, with positive relationships across the school based upon mutual support, respect and trust.
  • We value everybody's right to learn and teach in a welcoming, safe, caring, well organised and stimulating school environment.
  • We value the involvement of children, staff, governors, parents and carers in the decision making process of the school.
  • We value high quality teaching and learning, to enable everyone to reach the highest levels of achievement of which they are capable in all aspects of their learning.
  • We value creating enjoyable and worthwhile experiences for the children, which foster their delight in learning.
  • We value equality of opportunity and regard for all, through the nurturing of positive self-esteem, determination and perseverance, developing these through encouragement, constructive feedback and appropriate target setting.
  • We value independent learning, and aim to empower individuals to think for themselves and pursue and develop their learning interests within a structured and stimulating environment which encourages curiosity and persistence.
  • We value the learning process for its own sake and encourage intrinsic motivation, so that individuals can take responsibility for, and control of their own learning throughout their lives.
