What is the school’s mission statement?
We believe in providing a safe and happy learning environment where children and adults are valued, nurtured and empowered to achieve.
We believe a good education is the foundation on which our children’s futures are built and equips them for their life ahead. We aim to develop the whole child through a diverse and culture rich curriculum.
We are committed to providing an excellent education through helping children to achieve, by developing enquiring minds, instilling the motivation to learn and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively.
Our approach is underpinned by our strong Christian ethos. We aim to help children learn to love and forgive each other and aspire to be the best they can be, rejoicing in their own success and the success of others. We also aim to establish a clear understanding of rights and responsibilities for all by embedding the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child.
We believe everyone in the school community is responsible for instilling Christian values that will help our children become confident and responsible members of society.
