Achieving Excellence Together

Giving every child the chance to succeed and thrive.

Inspiring life-long, resilient learners by giving them the tools to explore the world. Working together by listening and ensuring everyone has a voice within our school community.

The values we have chosen are: pride, collaboration, resilience, respect, equality, enjoyment, excellence, honesty, inclusion, adventure, independence and kindness. These values will be explicitly taught and promoted as part of our curriculum. The values, we believe, will help our children to not only become effective learners but also responsible members of our community. Our hope is that the children will be able to use and apply these values throughout their learning and later life, making a positive contribution within their families, social interactions, work places and the wider community. We teach a value each half-term and this is often the focus of our assemblies and circle times.
