Our Vision and School Aims

Picture 1

After a full year of consulting with staff, pupils, governors and parents on what is important about our school, we have chosen a strap line to take us into the future. Our children and parents were especially helpful in putting forward a long list of words that were particularly relevant for our school. We now have three words that sum us up; a three step plan to achieving great things!

Aspire:

It is important that all our children aspire to be the best they can be, to set high goals for themselves and to work hard to reach these. Our role, as staff and parents, is to hold high aspirations for our children and to make sure we provide the best support and guidance to enable our children to do well in their lives and learning.

Believe:

We must have faith in ourselves and believe that we can achieve what we set out  to do. We need a positive mind set for this ; to overcome the challenges on route. Let’s encourage each other to be confident in our own abilities  and work together to achieve our best.

Achieve:

We are determined to empower our children to achieve the very best they can. We do this by providing excellent teaching, high quality resources and fabulous learning opportunities. Our children have their part to play in this as well, by being determined to do their best , in class and with their homework. By 

working together we can all  hold on to our dreams and aspirations  - and make them work for us.
