Our Vision & Values


Our main aim is to create a safe, caring and stimulating school for our children regardless of their gender, race or background. We aim to cater for all aspects of the child’s development with a commitment to nurturing positive relationships, positive working environment and high standards of achievement. We ensure this by working closely with parents, governors and the wider community.

In particular, we expect the children to be respectful, well behaved, tolerant of others and positive. We teach pupils to know the difference between right and wrong.

The staff, directors, children and parents unite in their vision for the future:

“Our school values and recognises the qualities of every individual and strives to foster a sense of pride in its community.

We believe:

  • in nurturing and celebrating every aspect of an individual’s personality and achievement.
  • in helping everyone to develop high self-esteem and the confidence to conquer everyday challenges.
  • all individuals should be able to communicate, co-operate and collaborate in work and play, showing understanding, tolerance and respect for others;
  • everyone should be aware of the importance of leading healthy lifestyles and how to remain safe in everyday activities;

  • in high standards of teaching and an exciting, stimulating and flexible curriculum which is equally accessible to everyone.
  • in promoting active participation in lifelong learning and academic success.

We will provide:
