Our vision for the school is ‘To be a community of globally aware and locally grounded, confident, lifelong learners’. We hold a set of values and attributes for our children that unpin the qualities and skills needed to be an effective learner. These key areas influence our planning for learning and the way that we teach and engage with each other.
Being active in our learning is an important value for our community. We recognise that learning never stops and that connections need to be made between the formal learning process and the reality of the world our children live in. Every child brings so much to their own learning and to those around them. Learning from our experiences, successes and mistakes is important.
Without curiosity, risk and the willingness to get things wrong, learning can’t happen.
We are deliberate in creating a high trust environment where children are enabled to explore, take risks, try new things, test their ideas and stretch their thinking.
Providing a foundation of key literacy and numeracy skills, along with the development of the attributes that make up a lifelong learner are what supports our children in being successful.
The motivation to learn and improve, and a willingness to problem solve and reflect underpins successful people. These are the qualities we are looking to develop as we work together for the success of our children.
