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

"The school's promotion of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school."
