Vision Statement and Aims

Vision Statement

“A great place to discover and learn”

Our vision is to create a school community where children participate, succeed and are proud of their achievements. We strive to actively promote British values and prepare our children to become role models, thus preparing them for life in modern Britain.

Mission Statement

We promote a love of learning within a safe and happy school in which every person in our community matters.

We provide a welcoming, safe and happy school where everyone is respected and listened to; a school where we take pride in ourselves and our achievements, enabling children to become confident and successful learners.

We provide a creative and challenging curriculum in order to inspire and encourage independence. We aim to create an environment where children develop the confidence to think for themselves and enjoy their time at school.

We work in partnership with all members of our community to ensure common values and aims lead to continuous improvement. We are committed to being a partner in the education of our pupils by working together with parents and the local community.
