Mission & Aims

Outstanding care, guidance and support contributes to the acceleration in pupils’ progress and personal development and well-being, which are now both good.  Ofsted Inspection June 2009.

We believe in the highest quality education within a secure, caring environment where all members are equally valued in our international community.

THE GENERAL AIMS OF THE SCHOOL:

  • To develop as far as possible the potential of all the children using the National Curriculum as the framework for the learning process

  • To provide for the physical, mental, emotional, moral, spiritual and social needs of the children

  • To give the children a secure and safe environment in which they can be nurtured and grow in confidence, respecting the people and property of our community

  • To build close links with parents and carers so that they feel at ease with us and are encouraged to be involved in their children’s education

  • To work in partnership with Central Government, Local Government, Governors and External Agencies

  • To prepare children for a successful career and responsible citizenship

  • To create a learning environment in which children and adults feel confident, relaxed, motivated and challenged to produce work of a high quality

THE VALUES OFTHE SCHOOL:

  • We believe in the intrinsic value of every child and adult within the school community

  • We accept that all our members are of equal worth and should receive equal opportunities regardless of their ability, gender, beliefs or ethnic origins

  • We seek to support the academically weak and to motivate the underachiever and to stimulate the able child through appropriate programmes of work and methods of teaching

  • We wish to cultivate a love of learning in children which will continue for the rest of their lives through curricular and extra-curricular activities

  • We wish to balance our rewards and punishments and to encourage children to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and others as well as for their environment

  • We wish to encourage children to empathise with others in a happy, positive atmosphere where children and adults mutually respect each other and find satisfaction in working together so that all make their way successfully in the world

  • We recognise the importance of the wider community which includes our parents & carers, governors, and local, national and international communities

  • We welcome the Every Child Matters agenda - that each of our pupils stays safe, is healthy, makes a positive contribution, enjoys and achieves and learns how to become economically viable
