Our Vision Statement
‘Building Personal Success’
We will ensure that every child and adult ‘shines’ and becomes the best that they can become.
Rights Respecting School
We are a school where children’s rights are at the heart of everything we do, our ethos and culture. We recognise the link between rights and developing every child’s talents and abilities, so they reach their full potential.
We are strong advocates of the UNICEF Rights and our vision is driven through ensuring these:
‘Every decision we make has to be in the best interest of the child.’
Article 29 (goals of education)
‘Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full.’ If we get this right then all ‘children will succeed regardless of their starting point.’
Children need to understand that society is not an equal playing field. It is our job to ensure that we give our children the best possible chance through providing an extensive and enriched curriculum, bespoke to our local context. Our curriculum must provide those experiences and opportunities, so that our children are able to make the right choices about their next steps and futures. We understand that each child is unique. We acknowledge the worth of all that each child brings and the value they add to our school community. We strive for excellence in everything that we do, and we believe that working in close partnership with parents, families and the community will enable our children to achieve their full potential: academically, as global citizens, moral leaders and good human beings. We think big for our children and believe that it can happen here!
We promise our children will be inspired, understand who they are, and have a strong sense of identity with high self-esteem and self-worth.
We will do this through:
- promoting and creating a safe, secure, supportive, respectful and caring environment in which to work and learn;
- offering a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum that aims to provide every child with a range of memorable experiences, both inside and outside school, while preparing them for
- providing well-resourced classrooms and teaching that motivates, inspires and meets the needs of all learners; and
- having the highest expectations of, and for, everyone – staff and pupils.
