What are our aims for your child?
The aims of our school are:
• To provide a safe, happy and stimulating school.
• To create a fair and just atmosphere in which each individual is valued and respected
• To develop self confidence, self worth and responsibility in each child
• To ensure that each child achieves their full potential
• To stimulate children’s learning through a broad, balanced and rich curriculum
• To value and respect parents and carers as genuine partners, who are actively involved in their children’s education
Our children, staff and parents come from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds, cultural groups and religious beliefs. We are extremely proud of this fact and believe it contributes towards the quality and vitality of school life. We use this background on which to base our school curriculum. By learning about each others customs, practices and beliefs we hope to have a greater awareness and tolerance of each other in our multi cultural society.
We hope to develop in each child an appreciation of their own identity and an understanding of their cultural background and that of others. Each child should have a positive self image and a pride in the contribution they can make to society. All parents and carers are expected to support and respect this philosophy. Racial abuse will not be tolerated. We attempt to provide each child with an opportunity to achieve high levels of academic achievement and develop the appropriate skills to make the most of their abilities.
