‘Working Together, Learning Together and Growing Together as lifelong learners’.
As a school we recognise that our aims and values can only be achieved through parents, children, staff and governors, “Working together, Learning together and Growing together.”
This involves maintaining a Learning Climate based on high expectations, trust, respect and mutual understanding, ensuring our vision and values permeate the life of our school.
This involves maintaining a Learning Culture that builds on the past, learns from the present and embraces the future, ensuring that teaching and learning continues to be characterised by high expectations and excellence and enjoyment.
This involves maintaining a Learning Ethos where high expectations, positive relationships, together with appropriate support and encouragement, ensures that pupils and staff achieve their full potential.
Our vision and aims are based on four core values which permeate the life of our school, empowering lifelong learning:
