Vision and Values


‘Striving for excellence with high expectations for all pupils to achieve their best’

To create a community where everyone can feel valued and believe in themselves. To support each child to be an INDEPENDENT learner.

To inspire and encourage everyone to aim high in a life-long love of learning. To value and celebrate individual strengths and promote a wide range of experiences in and out of the classroom so children can achieve their BEST. 

To work together with enthusiasm and PERSEVERENCE to engage in a creative, inspiring and purposeful curriculum. To develop enquiring minds who are equipped to make a positive contribution to life beyond the classroom.
