To provide a warm and welcoming learning environment where everyone is respected and no-one is isolated.
This will be an inclusive primary school where all will be treated equally and given equality of opportunity regardless of gender, special needs, disability or race. Learners will be treated as individuals and the teaching and learning will be differentiated to take account of individual needs.
Teaching and learning will be matched to the appropriate stage of children’s physical, mental, social, spiritual, moral and cultural development needs.
Children and adults alike will benefit from a rich, broad balanced curriculum that will be presented in an interesting, exciting and imaginative manner with lots of opportunities for first hand experience, practical work, investigation and learning through play. The curriculum will be enlivened and enriched by visits, visitors and the extensive use of the environment. The basics will be taught well and the creative aspects including art, poetry, story, music and performance will be central to our work.
All will have high expectations and set high standards for themselves and others. All will be treated fairly and listened to. All will have an opportunity to take responsibility, build their self-esteem and develop their self-confidence. Each individual’s success will be encouraged and celebrated. Progress and achievement will be rewarded.
Parents and the wider community will be seen to be equal partners with the school.
This will be a welcoming, friendly, bright and lively, happy place where children feel secure where good behaviour, self respect and respect for others is expected and where they enjoy growing up.
