CARING

Being creative allows our pupils to solve problems openly and innovatively. By having  the opportunity to use their creative side, our children become more absorbed in their learning and more driven to achieve their goals.

We encourage our pupils to embrace their curiosity. Curious people always ask questions and search for the answers. Curiosity is key to learning - when we're curious about something, we are much more likely to remember what we have learned.

Caring is about kindness, concern for others and taking responsibility. Our caring ethos means that our children get the best possible start to their education - they are respectful, hard working and look after each other.

  • Providing a broad, balanced, challenging, stimulating and creative curriculum which meets individual needs.

  • Building self-confidence, self-esteem and independence by celebrating success.

  • Encouraging a caring attitude which respects the beliefs and opinions of all within the school community, and ensures equal opportunity.

  • Promoting active, positive partnerships with parents and governors, whilst developing friendly links with the wider community.

  • Promoting staff expertise and empowering everyone to share and deliver innovative, creative and high quality teaching.

  • Nurturing curiosity, a questioning attitude and a love of lifelong learning.

  • Promoting a positive attitude to healthy eating and lifestyle.

  • Building a truly inclusive school, which caters for all children whatever their race, creed, culture and academic ability; enabling everyone to achieve their best in all areas of the curriculum and school life.

These aims will be achieved through teamwork and an active partnership between school, home, governors and the wider community.
