Aims and Ethos

  • Children learn best when they are happy, secure, respected and valued as individuals.
  • Learning should be positive, enjoyable and rooted in life experiences.
  • Through a shared language and approach we aim to nurture a child’s emotional and social development.
  • The learning environment needs to be inspiring and interactive.
  • We want our children to become increasingly independent learners, able to celebrate their successes, reflect on their learning and identify their next step.
  • We encourage children to develop respect for themselves, for others and for their environment.
  • Children should become aware of their community, both local and global.
  • We encourage children to have high expectations of themselves and high aspirations for the future.
  • Children should be encouraged to develop creativity through every aspect of the curriculum.
  • Everyone working in or visiting the school should feel special and valued for the contributions that they are able to make.
  • We have a commitment to provide an environment where the safety and well-being of children is paramount.
