Aims & Values
We believe, we achieve, we succeed.
Our motto is driven by our main values-
Diversity, Creativity, Aspiration, Resilience.
Our four school rules are derived from our values.
Through our understanding of the Christian Faith, we recognise our responsibility to encourage all children to live life in all its fullness (John 10:10)
We believe that our children should:-
- Live healthy lives
- Be resilient
- Be accepting of others and celebrate difference,
- Be confident
- Have self-belief
- Have problem-solving skills
- Be able to work collaboratively with others
- Have a range of interests
- Be aspirational
- Be aware of their impact on the environment
- Be independent
Our curriculum has been designed to ensure every child can ‘live life in all its fullness’. We aim to do this by delivering a curriculum that is underpinned by our drivers of diversity, aspiration, creativity and resilience and is designed to meet the needs of our children. We aim to deliver the knowledge, skills and understanding set out in the national curriculum, underpinned by our Christian values, through individual and collaborative learning experiences, a sense of responsibility and challenges both in and outside of the classroom.
We are a small school with a strong family ethos and can respond to the individual needs of every child and their interest, to promote a love of learning and an awareness of the local environment and global issues.
