We welcome our duty to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster harmony in relation to age, disability, ethnicity, gender, religion and belief and sexual identity. We welcome our duty to promote community cohesion and recognise our duties reflect the international human rights standards as expressed in various UN conventions.
By providing a flexible curriculum we aim to ensure a successful future in the 21st century by doing our best to enable children to become literate, numerate and ICT competent to at least the level expected for their ages. We want to encourage children to have a sense of pride in their achievements and an ability to take full, advantage of the opportunities offered to them.
We also aim –
– to motivate, inspire and expect all children to achieve more than they have achieved before. Never to put a ceiling upon what we expect them to attain, but to help them strive to improve upon their previous best – everyone can be excellent at something;
– to encourage children to take responsibility for themselves, their own actions and behaviour – to be self disciplined, self confident and to think of others; to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to life in a fast changing world through a broad, balanced and enriching curriculum; to leave our school better prepared for life;
– to develop a co-operative working partnership between all staff, parents/carers, governors and members of the community – we are all working together to benefit our children and to encourage everyone to respect the school environment;
– to provide a safe, secure, healthy and stimulating environment in which all children have a sense of social well-being, can succeed and be respected for who they are. Individual and group efforts are valued and praised – you don’t always have to be the best, you just have to try your best!
