  • valuing and respecting the diversity of individuals and communities
  • building positive relationships and friendships through mutual respect
  • equipping children with the skills and moral values to contribute fully within the community and as a British citizen
  • encouraging and valuing new ideas

Develop a lifelong love of learning which promotes enquiring, lively minds and prepares for the challenges of the 21st Century:

  • developing capable learners, who are resilient, confident and self-assured
  • discussing aspirations and developing targets in partnership with parents
  • developing an exciting and motivating curriculum, which promotes cross curricular learning, creativity and problem solving and therefore maximises progress
  • promoting high standards of language and literacy, by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and developing their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment
  • promoting high standards of numeracy and its practical application
