Aim, Purpose and Values

Our aim is to enable students to become:

  • successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society

Our purpose is to:

  • Share a vision of learning as a lifelong journey: we are all learners
  • Engender a positive attitude and commitment to learning: resilient, responsible, reasoning, resourceful, reflective learners
  • Pass on valued skills, knowledge and understanding: to prepare children for the opportunities and challenges they face as the next generation

Our agreed school values are:

  • Learning: An entitlement to relevant and purposeful learning, high expectations and outcomes, widening horizons and raising aspirations
  • Well-being: An ethos of personal development and emotional intelligence, excellent care and guidance, intrinsic motivation to discover routes to happiness and success
  • Togetherness: An environment founded on equality and inclusion, rights and responsibilities, an awareness of belonging to our immediate and global communities

We are an educational community where:

  • high standards of learning and teaching enable all children to develop as purposeful, independent learners
  • we can all feel safe and inspired
  • mutual respect and co-operation flourish
  • teaching motivates children to achieve highly, reflect on their progress and value their own success
  • equality of opportunity is promoted and valued
  • there is partnership with families, parents and carers, other professionals and outside agencies to ensure individual needs are met
  • all children are supported to make good progress, whatever their individual starting point and needs
  • we strive to overcome potential barriers to learning for individuals and groups of pupils

"Pupils who have special educational needs or disability make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. This is because pupils are identified effectively and offered the support they need quickly."
