Vision for learning


As a school we aim to develop the whole child and enable our pupils to become confident, independent learners. We aim to foster a caring and considerate attitude towards the whole school community; promoting British values and encouraging tolerance and respect for others, their beliefs and cultures.


Our vision for learning encompasses 6 key themes which run through all of our teaching. These are:


Achievement - through the provision of opportunities for children to become confident, independent learners who are able to reach their full potential.

Safe - working with parents and the wider community to promote a kind and caring environment where children feel secure.

Passion - igniting an enthusiasm for life-long learning

Individuality - promoting respect, acknowledging difference and diversity and supporting children understand the range of beliefs and cultures reflected in British society.

Resilience – developing children’s ability to manage and control their emotions and be willing to try again when facing challenges.

Exploration – nurture an enjoyment of learning through a creative, diverse, inclusive curriculum and range of first hand experiences.
