OUR SCHOOL ETHOS
In the caring environment of our school and its community everyone is valued.
We provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment in which our children feel secure, learn and develop. We nurture and help the children to achieve academically, socially, emotionally and physically. We develop each child’s independence, and willingness to take responsibility for his/her own learning and behaviour. The children’s lives are enriched as they enjoy the creative and imaginative curriculum we provide. Expectations of our children are high, and we raise the standards achieved wherever possible, encouraging each child to realise their full potential.
They are encouraged to be inspirational as they experience the range of opportunities on offer. Their horizons are broadened. Individual talents and interests flourish.
We nurture within the children a sense of social responsibility, and an awareness of their role in the wider community. Children become more self confident as they express their thoughts and know that their contributions are valued. Children are prepared to become fulfilled adults who contribute to society.
Through our ethos, our curriculum and our policies, procedures and practices we actively promote the British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for all, (as defined in the government's Prevent Strategy 2011). Opinions or behaviours that are contrary to fundamental British values are challenged.
Our Common Purpose
Our Common Purpose is summarised in our logo with the phrase, “Success through Challenge, Respect, Enthusiasm and Motivation”. This acronym (SCREM) helps us to remember that we always strive to achieve our best in everything we do by accepting challenges with enthusiasm and the motivation to complete them. At the same time we care for everyone in our school community and the wider World and treat them with the respect with which we would like to be treated.
