At the heart of our school is our vision for our children, their families and our broader community.
This vision is based on our belief that the purpose of primary education is to allow children to learn and grow in a calm, safe, happy, stimulating environment. We believe in setting our children ambitious targets, and supporting every one of them to succeed, through the provision of support tailored to their individual needs. We work hard to ensure that children enjoy their learning – and that they are engaged both in the classroom and beyond, through participation in the large number of co-curricular activities we have on offer.
In essence, we strive to be learning community that:
As a member of the Leading Learning Trust, the vision, values and strategic priorities of the trust inform everything we do at our school. The document to download on this page provides further details.
It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. In everything we do, we work to ensure that our children, staff and families feel happy, safe and secure. The way in which we work together (i.e. our shared values) supports the achievement of this aim.
We have distilled this way of working into the ‘5 Cs’: courtesy, care, commitment, co-operation and consideration. These apply to all relationships, both in the classroom, around the school, outside school and with partner organisations.
Behaviour that reflects these values is rewarded and celebrated at school. Negative behaviour that is counter to our values is not tolerated.
Our school pledge is an important way of reminding us all of our vision and values, on a daily basis. Our pledge is as follows:
This is our school – a place where we learn.
May all here:
With perseverance, and in partnership, we succeed.
