Aims and Ethos

Our Mission Statement

Our aim is to provide a stimulating, happy and caring environment in which children and staff can work to their full potential in developing skills, abilities and positive attitudes.

Aims for our children

  • to develop knowledge, skills and practical abilities and have the confidence to use them in a variety of situations
  • to encourage children to develop lively enquiring minds with the ability to question (and think critically)
  • to help children find pleasure in their work and recognise their achievements in a positive way in order for them to reach their potential
  • to instil respect for religious, spiritual and moral values and develop an understanding of, and respect for, cultural diversity
  • to be able to work independently and with perseverance, and also in cooperation (collaboration) with others
