Our Aims & Objectives
Our 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 and productive life. We seek 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.
Our aims are:
- To ensure the welfare and safety of our pupils.
- To provide our pupils with knowledge and experience appropriate to their age.
- To teach literacy and numeracy skills 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 pupils’ confidence in themselves to lead full and independent lives.
- To develop an appreciation of art, drama and music and to provide opportunities for performances of a high standard.
- To provide opportunities for pupils to engage in the democratic process and participate in community life.
This is achieved by:
- Providing a happy and safe environment that gives a sense of security with consistent expectations within an organised structure.
- Giving the pupils high yet realistic targets, within an ethos of individual excellence.
- Creating a caring atmosphere where pupils are confident that their individual needs will be respected and considered.
- Providing a broad and stimulating curriculum.
We know this has been achieved:
- Through pupils’ responses to all lessons.
- Through pupils’ behaviour towards each other and within the community.
- Through pupils displaying the initiative, integrity and respect appropriate to their age.
- Through regular assessment and testing of pupils.
- 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.
