Vision and Values

Our Vision: Nurture, Inspire, Achieve

 

Nurture...

  • We believe children learn best when they are happy.  We actively promote and nurture happiness and equity in our school, striving to give every child what they need to thrive.
  • Our school is a welcoming, calm and safe environment in which pupils are encouraged to try their best, develop their independence and build their self-esteem.
  • Our school is at the heart of a vibrant and diverse community that we have served for over 120 years.  Opportunities to learn within our community are integral to our curriculum.  Our children are encouraged to actively engage with and contribute to their community though Community Days and Charity Week.
  • We want our children to be kind, caring and responsible. This includes their attitude to our planet and the natural world.
  • Our school’s values of gratitude, kindness, determination, respect, honesty and cooperation underpin the behaviours we expect of all members of our community.
  • Learning is personalised to the needs of children.  We do not follow schemes.  We have created a curriculum which responds to the diversity that exists within our community.

 

Inspire...

  • Our vision is clear - to ensure all children realise their potential in the key skills within the context of a rich, experience-based curriculum.
  • We are committed to providing our children with the best possible start to their education. We value creativity and the arts, giving every pupil experiences in music, art and performance throughout their time in our school.
  • We aim to instil a love of learning and are passionate that our children's primary education will be full of success and life-long memories.
  • We support our children to be thoughtful, resilient and reflective learners. We encourage our children to use our school values, mindfulness, a growth mindset, philosophy for children and outdoor learning sessions to challenge them to think about and navigate their world.
  • Our children receive a broad, exciting, experience-rich curriculum. They learn subjects through “enquiring and doing” in whatever place best suits learning – not just the classroom.
  • Our children are entitled to receive enriching experiences that go beyond the curriculum. They are offered an extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities and experiences.
  • Teaching is outstanding.  Children benefit from teaching cycles that focus lessons on their needs, underpinned by high quality feedback, assessment and bespoke interventions. Our staff always strive to improve, using ideas from research and our strong partnerships with other successful schools, in order to provide teaching that always enthuses and challenges.

 

Achieve...

  • We are committed to ensuring our children receive the best possible learning opportunities.
  • We want our children to ‘be the best they can be’ and recognise that developing excellent skills in Maths and English are essential to this aim.
  • We want our children to develop wider skills which will enable them to flourish academically, socially and personally in the future.
  • Our pupils are confident, articulate and well-rounded thinkers.  They value academic achievements, a growth mindset, their own happiness and their friendships.  They inspire the adults around them.
  • As a result, our standards and outcomes are very high, whether measured by pupil happiness, parent satisfaction or academic achievement.
Values: Our school values are part of everything we do, from the way we learn, how we talk to each other, how we play together and what we celebrate.  We have six school values:
