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 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.
