Ethos and Aims

The school’s mission is to identify and develop to the full the natural talents and potential of each individual pupil and to prepare them all for a full, happy, healthy, active and productive life. The school seeks to achieve this within the context of the culture, ethics and values of the Christian faith emphasising those strong moral and spiritual tenets shared with other faiths.

We aim:

  • To ensure the welfare and safety of our pupils
  • To provide our pupils with knowledge and experience appropriate to their age
  • To teach skills of literacy and numeracy to the highest possible standard
  • To teach those cultural skills which enable pupils to develop knowledge and understanding of the world, its peoples and cultures, both past and present
  • To develop and enhance pupils’ knowledge of the environment and thereby foster an awareness of the need to conserve and care for its resources
  • To develop the desire and ability to contribute to the community at large, respecting and appreciating others for their differences and beliefs, with particular reference to British values
  • To develop confidence in themselves to lead healthy, active and independent lives.
  • To gain transferrable skills across a broad and relevant curriculum in order to develop independent thought and the ability to communicate effectively
  • To develop an appreciation of art, drama, music and sport by providing opportunities for participation
  • To provide opportunities for engaging in the democratic process and participating in community life

How is this achieved?

  • By having policies and procedures that produce a happy and safe environment, giving a sense of security with consistent expectations within an organised structure
  • By giving the pupils high yet realistic targets, within an ethos of individual excellence
  • By creating a caring atmosphere where pupils are confident that their individual needs will be respected and considered
  • By providing a broad and stimulating curriculum delivered by effective teaching

How we know whether this has been achieved:

  • Through pupil outcomes
  • Through pupil behaviour and attitudes
  • Through pupil demonstrating initiative, integrity and respect appropriate to their age
  • Through regular assessment, monitoring and analysis of pupil achievement and personal development
  • Through regular internal assessment and appraisal of staff

Keeping Children Safe in Education

We have a duty to Keep Children Safe in Education.  This responsibility necessitates a Keeping Children Safe in Education policy, Child Protection and Code of Conduct Policy and we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.

“Why did we choose Sarum Hall? Its reputation and our observations on the school’s value system and pastoral care, and how they raise the girls in addition to educating them. Also their commitment to music, the arts and extra-curricular activities.”

Covid-19 Curriculum

We have transferred our usual educational provision into a Remote Learning Programme which maintains the curriculum input for pupils from Reception up to Year 6. The programme replicates our days in school with live lessons delivered for all subjects. Our programme can be accessed via the Sarum Hall Remote Learning Portal. The school will remain open for the Nursery class and Key Worker children until Monday 8th March, when we welcome back pupils in all year groups.
