Values and Ethos

 Respect – Excellence – Friendship

We seek to enable every child to develop into a happy, enthusiastic and responsible member of the community.  We provide a stable, secure and disciplined environment where academic, creative, personal and social potential can be achieved by every child and a love of learning can be harnessed. We share a relentless pursuit of respect, excellence and friendship.

          We aim to help our children, with the cooperation of their parents, to:

  • Develop into happy and confident individuals with a lifelong love of learning.
  • Develop lively, enquiring minds through knowledge with understanding.
  • Act responsibly, display initiative, being considerate to themselves and others.
  • Value and understand a range of religious, cultural and moral beliefs and develop a respect for the views of others.
  • Develop a sense of awe and wonder about the world around them.
  • Appreciate achievements and the aspirations of themselves and others.
  • Understand something of the world in which we live with regard for our mutual dependence on others as individuals, groups and nations.

We will do this by providing:

  • A stable, secure, disciplined and supportive environment with clear expectations for good behaviour and a culture of mutual respect.
  • A creative and enriched curriculum promoting equal opportunities and high standards of achievement.
  • Strong links between home and school, the local community and beyond developing friendships and a sense of shared responsibility.
  • Whole school and individual staff development to promote the highest standards of teaching and learning.
  • A forward-looking innovative school setting with a relentless drive for excellence.

          We also aim to:

  • Contribute to raising national standards in education through sharing good practice with other schools and developing leaders for the future.
  • Taking a leading role in national initiatives.
