Children are at the centre of everything that happens in school. They have an entitlement to the best possible education. This is achieved by all staff, doing everything possible to promote the interest of each and every pupil, to foster self-esteem and enable them to achieve the highest standards and equip them with the skills to become life-long learners.Children only have one chance in their education and therefore we believe in providing the best.
We provide a curriculum which is broad, balanced, rich and challenging to meet the needs of all pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and English as a second language. It will include first-hand experience and be taught effectively using an appropriate range of teaching strategies. This is achieved through consistently high quality teaching and learning.
Children's achievements are recognised across the whole curriculum to improve confidence and self-esteem. There is an emphasis on the use of praise to achieve a positive effect in all subjects. Provision of a range of extra-curricular activities enrich and enhance the curriculum.
There is a quality provision both inside and outside which will include consistency in organisation and management of classrooms to facilitate children's learning and independence. The school is led by a Head Teacher, who has a passionate commitment to education, based upon deeply held values and beliefs which include the desire to serve pupils, parents and the community. They are supported by the Leadership Team and Governors in the strategic thinking and direction of the school.
