For our children and staff

Our pupils and staff will feel happy, safe and think school is fun. They will enjoy coming to school and will be inspired to learn. They will be aware of how they learn, their likes and dislikes, strengths and challenges. All pupils and staff will feel valued and supported in our warm and friendly school. They will be suitably challenged to develop academically, physically, creatively, socially, spiritually, culturally and morally to become healthy, lifelong learners. Our pupils will have many and varied opportunities to participate in activities beyond the curriculum. All pupils and staff will be proud of themselves, their school and their achievements. All members of the school community will show respect for one another.

For our stakeholders

All our stakeholders, staff, governors, pupils, parents and the wider community will feel welcome and a valued part of the school. They will be eager to take an active role to support the learning and development of the pupils. The school will take a positive role in engaging with and supporting the local and wider community.
For our environment

Our environment will be welcoming, stimulating and well ordered. All members of the school community will respect the working environment and will be keen to maintain and develop it. The children will enjoy accessing the outdoor environment to enhance their learning.
