We have an ethos of high expectations, where every child flourishes intellectually, personally and morally. We teach our children to be successful independent learners who concentrate, persevere, take risks and have a willingness to make mistakes. We want all our children to make accelerated progress and achieve well.
We want to make learning irresistible so that your child comes to school every day happy and eager to learn. We know that children are naturally inquisitive and we aim to develop this curiosity by providing a curriculum that engages and excites but also provides challenge at the correct level.
As a Thinking School, we teach our children to become creative, analytical, adaptable and resilient thinkers which we believe is a vital skill needed for life in the rapidly changing 21st Century.
Above all, we want to give even the youngest children the behaviours that will enable them to become successful lifelong learners.
Children learn best when they are in an environment which makes them feel happy and safe. We pride ourselves on our high quality learning environment which is calm and purposeful and promotes children’s independence.
There are high expectations of behaviour and everyone in the school community has a responsibility for maintaining a relaxed, calm and happy atmosphere. We recognise that all behaviour is communication and that sometimes children need support to make the right choices.
Throughout the school, we will nurture your child’s social development. From learning to share in the Early Years to coping with a fall out with friends, your child will be supported to recognise and deal effectively with the different emotions that they experience. We want to equip our children will the skills which will enable them to be polite, confident, hardworking members of society.
