Ethos & Values


We wish to ensure that the quality of experience and opportunity we offer to all the children in our school is the best, and the most appropriate that we can provide. This is reflected in the values and aims of our school:


Pupils arrive in their first school as individuals in their own right, having acquired various degrees of learning through the family and community in which they live. We believe that the task of the school is to ensure that the curriculum, in terms of experience and activities, will promote the continued development of each child through the acquisition of knowledge, concepts and skills. A carefully planned learning environment is offered to enable each pupil to make progress. When they leave us, our aim is that pupils are confident, able to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding, and prepared to take an active part in the next phase of their learning for life.


Our Mission Statement


‘Where All Individuals Shine’

‘We believe that all children at this school deserve to be given the opportunities, support and encouragement to achieve their best’.

The main aims of the school are:


  • To ensure the safeguarding of all children.
  • To provide a stimulating and happy environment where pupils are cared for, valued and appreciated regardless of race and gender or ability, and they reflect this in their own attitudes to each other.
  • To provide the learning foundation for a home school partnership, where the school works with the community it serves to develop the basis for life-long learning.
  • To provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum which meets the specifications of the National Standards and enables pupils to achieve their full potential.
  • To develop the pupil’s ability to think, question and discuss and take responsibility for their actions.
  • To encourage appreciation of the natural world and human aspirations and achievements.
  • To build personal and moral values, respect and appreciation for all races and religions.
