  • To accept our children as they are and nurture what they have so they can be the best they can be.
  • To give our children real learning experiences and encourage a thirst for knowledge.
  • To be committed and give the best of ourselves.
  • To provide challenge for our children, whilst understanding their starting points, to enable them to be the best they can be.
  • For children and staff to feel supported and valued.

Our responsibilities

  • To be clear about the learning behaviour we expect and ensure we model it.
  • To ensure that there are consistently good teaching and learning opportunities and real life experiences across the school, for all our children.
