Aims of the School

 

Mission Statement

 

We seek to work with parents to fulfil each child’s optimum intellectual, spiritual, moral, cultural and social development within the context of a school setting.

 

We aim to provide a safe, happy, responsible, learning community in which all children can develop and be valued as individuals. To achieve this the school will help pupils:

 

  • develop lively, enquiring minds, with the ability to question and discuss rationally;

 

  • acquire knowledge and skills relevant to subsequent stages in their education, adult life and work;

 

  • use language and numbers effectively;

 

  • understand the world in which they live, including the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations;

 

  • appreciate achievements and aspirations;

 

  • develop appropriate relationships with other children and adults;

 

  • be respectful of religious and moral values and tolerant of other races and religions.
