Our Aims

We aim to encourage a love of learning and thereby make every day a rewarding experience for child and teacher.

The school offers a broad curriculum in line with the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, the National Curriculum and advice of the Department for Education and the Local Authority. It is designed to meet the educational needs of each and every child.

We aim to help children:

  • to make best use of all opportunities presented to them during their time in school
  • to develop lively, enquiring minds with the ability to question and argue rationally
  • to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding
  • to develop habits of self-discipline, acceptable behaviour, courtesy and good manners
  • to understand the importance of taking personal responsibility for themselves and their learning
  • to use language and number with confidence and enthusiasm
  • to develop respect for religious and moral values and tolerance towards ways of life that differ   from their own
  • to understand the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations
  • to respect and care for other people and the environment
  • to appreciate human achievements and endeavour
  • to grow in aesthetic awareness and make best use of opportunities for their creativity and imagination
  • to develop agility and physical co-ordination and the ability to express themselves through movement

We guide each child towards fulfilling his/her full potential:

  • through the provision of high quality education and resources
  • through encouragement and high expectation
  • by praising and recognising his/her achievements and talents
  • by developing self-esteem and fostering self-confidence
  • by providing a stimulating, happy and safe environment in which he/she may work confidently
  • by ensuring continuity and progression through the setting of appropriate goals
  • through offering equal opportunities
  • by preparing him/her for future education and a fulfilling adult life
