Vision and Values


‘Together we care, we learn and we enjoy success!’


Our Vision

All children secure essential skills and knowledge in a challenging, creative and engaging curriculum built on caring and trusting relationships. Children thrive and show positive attitudes to learning.

We are passionate about creating lively, purposeful learning so all children make progress and gain confidence, showing enjoyment of learning.

We nurture, model and teach mutual respect, high expectation and personal ambition with the aim that all children grow into responsible and caring citizens.

Our provision equips children for positive change, growth and personal development to grow as rounded, caring and successful adults.

We strive for continual improvement to create a thriving learning culture for all in our school.

Our Values


  • We work with our families to help all children enjoy leaps in learning progress.
  • Much of our learning is social and very interactive.
  • We develop oracy, self-expression and skills for shared learning.
  • Adults as well as children thrive through working in teams, sharing best practice and striving for improvement. We work together with other agencies and local schools too.

We Care

  • We build secure and trusting relationships starting every day with personal chats and smiles.
  • Personal development is at the heart of our curriculum, building positive behaviour.
  • Strong commitment and high ambition enable children to grow in confidence.
  • Our calm and consistent learning environments are full of inviting and effective supports.

We Learn

We want children to be curious and questioning as they explore and respond to real challenges in their learning. So:

  • Children are taught key knowledge, skills and learning attitudes
  • Children are self-motivated and have personal ambition
  • Children develop ‘staying power’ in responding to challenge
  • Children’s social skills enable collaborative learning
  • Children thrive; they make strong progress and achievement.
  • Children enjoy school and are keen to take responsibility

We Enjoy Success

  • Success is personal and special.
  • Children are motivated to work through mistakes, to practise and to feel proud of their progress and efforts. They feel valued.
  • Success is celebrated widely in many different ways throughout our school.
