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 OF THE 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 aim for each of our pupils to stay safe, be healthy, make a positive contribution, enjoy and achieve and learn how to become economically viable.
We are particularly focusing on the Olympic and Paralympic values of Respect, Friendship, Determination, Inspiration, Courage, Equality and Excellence.
