Our Values


As a school committed to getting the very best for our children, we believe in:


  1. excellence in learning and teaching of an innovative, varied and creative curriculum, underpinned by the development of basic skills within a vibrant, challenging and interactive environment.
  2. a warm, welcoming, inclusive atmosphere, full of opportunities, both during lessons and through a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
  3. the potential of ICT and Music to enhance and extend learning and teaching across the whole curriculum where appropriate.
  4. nurturing and valuing each individual’s talents, abilities, learning styles, strengths and qualities, based on high, but achievable expectations.
  5. encouraging everyone to believe in themselves, build self-esteem and allow time for reflection on personal and academic development.
  6. encouraging values of empathy, respect, honesty, responsibility and resilience; and also respecting the right to hold other beliefs and ways of life.
  7. creating a safe, secure and inspirational learning environment in which all strive to achieve their full potential, whilst also feeling able to take risks and learn from mistakes.
  8. developing a consultative partnership between children, parents, teaching and non-teaching staff, governors and the wider community, based on mutual respect and regular communication.
