Vision, Aims and Values

‘Together, we are on a journey of discovery and achievement.’

Vision

Everyone in our school community deserves to be cared for unconditionally and valued equally as a unique person. In our learning, in our work, in our relationships and in the ways in which we organise our community we are committed to aiming for success in everything we do, by:

The Aims

  • Celebrating our achievements
  • Valuing and including everyone
  • Respecting ourselves and respecting others
  • Being a good friend and colleague
  • Having high expectations of oneself and others
  • Being polite, well mannered and behaving sensibly
  • Making  the most of the opportunities given to us
  • Trying our best in all that we do
  • Having a positive attitude towards work and enjoying what we do
  • Communicating clearly
  • Being honest and trustworthy
  • Recognising we are part of a team and supporting others
  • Being safe
  • Creating a stimulating learning environment
  • Looking after our environment
  • Being optimistic
  • Persevering, even when we find things difficult
  • Welcoming visitors to our school
  • Providing challenge
  • Encouraging curiosity, logical and creative thinking
  • Promoting independence  and developing confidence
  • Working together with other people

We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to achieve our vision and we all need to work together to achieve its aims. We have a strong desire for the pupils to take with them happy memories of their time spent in our school and the necessary skills, both social and academic, to succeed later in life.

The Values

By implementing our school vision, we aim for our community to:

Respect – valuing ourselves, others and property

Tolerance – understanding, seeing others points of views, being accepting of differences

Honesty – not being afraid to tell the truth, being honest with ourselves

Caring – friendship, being approachable, openness, stability, trust

Appreciation – encouragement, praise

Humour – a happy environment, to laugh with, not at, each other

Achievement – encouragement, praise, recognising and celebrating real effort

We believe the main way to actively promote these values is to model these at all times in our relationships with all members of the school community.
