We seek to provide high achievement and learning for life by working with the school’s community. We aim to provide:
- The best for every child
- A commitment to every learner
- Inspiration for everyone
- Promotion of the Christian ethos
- To provide a broad and balanced curriculum to acquire the basic tools of learning.
- To create a happy, stimulating school environment where individual children are encouraged to develop to their full potential.
- To encourage children to feel confident and secure in school, to experience success, to become self-motivated, independent and reflective.
- To develop lively, enquiring and creative minds with the ability to question and argue rationally.
- To help develop spiritual, moral, social and personal attitudes, as well as awareness and tolerance of cultural differences in society.
- To help develop a caring attitude towards others, to co-operate with other children and adults, playing a full part in school life.
- To develop an understanding of our rapidly changing world and of the inter-dependence of individuals, groups, nations and the environment. To have experiences beyond their own environment through visits to both rural and urban areas.
- To develop an appreciation of aesthetic awareness and creative arts, by providing opportunities for all children to participate in artistic and dramatic performances.
- To develop a wide range of physical skills, and understanding of their need for a healthy lifestyle.
There is no place for extremist views of any kind in our school, whether from internal sources – pupils, staff, visiting adults, governors etc. or external sources – school community, external agencies or individuals.
Any prejudice, discrimination or extremist views, including derogatory language, displayed by pupils, staff, visitors or parents will always be challenged and, where appropriate, dealt with.
We encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We ensure that partisan political views are not promoted in the teaching of any subject in the school and, where political issues are brought to the attention of the pupils, reasonably practicable steps are taken to offer a balanced presentation of opposing views to pupils.
