About Us

Statement of ethos and values

Our vision is that every child will succeed. We are highly aspirational for all of our children and we do whatever it takes to enable them to overcome barriers to their learning. We are committed to fair and equal access to the curriculum for all children, regardless of their starting points and taking into account any additional needs they may have. We work together to give each individual child the best possible experience of school life.

We are committed to developing lifelong learners who value and exhibit qualities such as:

  • Aspiration
  • Collaboration
  • Resilience
  • Creativity
  • Self-expression

We focus on providing a safe and nourishing environment where children feel accepted, included and able to take on new challenges. With this in place, we know that we can instil a love of learning in our children.

In order achieve our vision we base our practice on the following strategies:

  • An engaging and diverse curriculum, which reflects our pupils’ daily lived experiences and makes full use of the local community to enrich their learning.
  • Giving children ownership of their own learning and a role in planning a curriculum, which reflects their interests and questions.
  • Assessment for learning using high quality and well respected research from Shirley Clarke and John Hattie.
  • A ‘brain-friendly’ approach based on what children need for optimal cognitive functioning, including growth mindset.
  • The use of ‘in the moment’ feedback and assessment for learning to move learners on.
  • A robust behaviour policy based on high quality relationships and mutual respect.
