Our Aims and Ethos

Our Aims and Ethos


'Fulfilling Potential, Rewarding Success'


  • A school where everyone feels valued and respected.

  • A place with a warm, happy, calm, safe atmosphere where everyone enjoys learning and working together.

  • A school which has learning and teaching at the heart of everything that it does.

  • An ethos which celebrates achievement and recognises success.

  • A place which has consistently high expectations for all and where academic achievement is not the only measure of success.


The Outcomes for our Children should be:

  • Children that are confident and highly motivated with a good self-image who are fully involved in the life of the school.

  • Children who think positively.

  • Children who behave well and who tolerate, care and support each other.

  • Children who can think for themselves, who are open minded and have a love of learning and show initiative.

  • Lessons which take account of individual learning styles and are interesting and challenging.

  • Children who achieve to the best of their ability and fulfil their own potential.

  • Children’s views represented in the organisation of the school.


Our Ethos, Curriculum, Working Practices and Environment will achieve these aims because:  - 

  • Our ethos will value all children as individuals, raising self-esteem whenever we can and creating a positive atmosphere through our interactions with the children and each other.

  • Our curriculum will be broad, balanced and creative with many opportunities for first-hand experiences. Teaching will take account of learning styles and all abilities. SATS will be important but so will the development of the whole child through the arts, and subjects such as PSHE, and striving to be a healthy school. We will try to teach the children life-skills to equip them for tomorrow’s world.

  • We will be a performing and effective team who support each other and work for the positive development of our children.

  • We will be open, honest and supportive of each other, setting positive examples to the children.

  • Our environment will be attractive, calm, ordered, safe and stimulating.

  • It will celebrate the achievements of the children and stimulate and support their learning.

  • It will look bright, colourful and make an impact.

  • We will develop positive relationships with parents and the wider community.
