Aims and Ethos

Our School and Federation vision

We believe all children have the freedom to learn in a safe and secure environment.

We aim to:

  • Promote and encourage children’s independence and confidence.
  • Encourage children to believe in themselves and to participate and support each other as active members of our community.

We believe all of us should be able to experience success and achieve our full potential, knowing all of our efforts are valued.

We aim to:

  • Provide an education of exceptional quality, promoting the highest possible standards of learning for every child.
  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum to help and guide each child to develop through a range of skills, knowledge and practical activities.

We believe the whole school community should show respect and kindness towards each other.

We aim to:

  • Provide a happy, well organised and stimulating school where all children and staff can work together in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect and where children can learn to be tolerant, courteous and considerate to others.
  • Provide equal educational opportunities and experiences to all children regardless of disability, race, religion or gender.
    Enrich the lives of our children through fostering respect and understanding of the many cultures represented in our school.

We believe the school environment should be peaceful and happy.

We aim to:

  • Teach and encourage the development of good working habits, an enquiring mind and self- discipline and to encourage the children to take pride in their work, themselves and their school.
  • Foster a caring environment where all children learn to respect the school’s property and that of others

We believe all children should be able to develop their creativity as a means of self-expression.

A hard copy of all policies and reports on our website is available. Please ask at the School Office if there is anything you would like!
