Our School

Aims of the School

As a school we strive to achieve for each individual their maximum potential for academic, physical and social achievement.

All pupils must take the next step in their learning at the earliest opportunity they are ready to do so.

We would be failing if we did not encourage children to become literate and numerate with high levels of spoken, investigative and problem solving skills, together with a balanced view of the world.

We would also be failing if we did not promote equally important social skills such as a positive attitude to competition, co-operation, tolerance, care for oneself and others and good manners.

General Ethos

The school has a very strong work ethos. Pupils are expected to work hard and to the best of their ability at all times. Courtesy and good behaviour are prerequisites. There are positive attitudes towards self-discipline whilst enjoying school life.

Pupils come to school to learn and enjoy themselves. If lessons are enjoyed more is learnt. If all behave sensibly all can enjoy themselves and learn.

We strive to -

  • Promote equality of opportunity for all pupils and staff
  • Meet children's individual and collective needs
  • Promote positive self-image and high emotional intelligence
  • Promote self-discipline, respect for others and a caring attitude
  • Provide an environment which is friendly and secure whilst promoting effort and endeavour
  • Promote a feeling of "ownership" by all those concerned in the life of the school
  • Encourage pupils to take responsibility for their own learning
  • Promote learning as a means to enjoyment
  • Enable pupils to develop high levels of attainment in core and foundation subjects
  • Promote learning through investigation and problem solving
  • Promote a positive attitude to competition and co-operation
