Vision & Ethos

Mission Statement

Our Vision and Aims

‘Learning, Values and Achievement’ is our mission statement.

Learning: We believe in a happy, stimulating and safe environment, with an exciting topic-based curriculum which enables children to enjoy their learning.

Values: Values Education underpins everything we learn in school and informs the attitudes and behaviour of our children, and we encourage staff, children and parents to value not only each other, but the school and the wider environment. 

Achievement: We ensure every child achieves their best (and beyond!) and we provide both the challenge and the support to get them there. We achieve good academic standards.

Healthy School/ Eco-school

As both an Eco-school and a Healthy School, we know how to take care of our environment and understand the importance of what we grow and eat. We have a wooded area and garden and teach Forest School lessons.  We have two trained Forest School Leaders. We gain some of our energy through our solar panels.

Home/School Partnership

As a school we place a great deal of emphasis on the co-operation between home and school. We always encourage and welcome parents to help in school and to work alongside the staff to enable the children to achieve their full potential. Events are arranged throughout the year for parents to attend both formally and informally.

Values Education

Our Values' system is based on each child's right to respect, to learn and to belong to a safe school. Values are taught on a two-year rolling programme (Living values) through assemblies, circle time, role models, etc. Pupils demonstrating a positive value are mentioned in our values assemblies. Their achievements are celebrated by having a value leaf (snowflake or flower – time of year dependent!) written out by their teacher and attached to our value tree in the hall. This is a poignant part of the hall and visible to all.
