Aims of the school


Aim high, enjoy the challenge and meet with success.


In support of this we will:

·       provide a balanced curriculum with a wide range of stimulating learning activities so that children enjoy school and achieve high standards

·       have high yet realistic expectations of the whole child, to nurture the vulnerable, encourage and challenge the majority and extend the most able.

·       in the spirit of respect and co-operation, build a school community in which everyone feels safe, happy and valued as individuals

·       promote health and well-being at school so that it becomes an integral part of personal lifestyle

·       give children opportunities to make a positive contribution to school life and in the wider community

·       teach the value of money and the importance of looking after resources well.
