School Aims - Mission Statement
Our aim is to provide a happy and stable school environment. All children will be given full access to the National Curriculum. This will enable them, regardless of their abilities, gender, ethnic or social background, to reach the highest standards by realising their potential and developing talents and strengthening weaknesses in all areas.
We aim to:
- Help children to become considerate individuals, appreciating the need for polite standards of behaviour, truth, self-discipline, respect for others and to understand authority and to co-operate appropriately.
- We will lead our pupils to appreciate Christian religious and moral standards, also understanding for other religions and cultures - within this school and beyond.
- To encourage lively, informed, enquiring minds, with the ability to question, and to debate from knowledge and fact.
- To teach how to communicate with others in an appropriate manner and gain fluency in English language to do this.
- To develop a skill in and an enjoyment of reading.
- To help children see patterns in the world around them; to develop understanding of mathematical operations and knowledge of the number skills required in daily life.
- To encourage children to develop curiosity about life around them; an appreciation of their environment and how our actions change this.
- To develop the skills for using I.C.T., enabling pupils to effectively meet the demands of information technology in their future lives.
- To teach the basic skills of handwriting and the creative arts and skills.
- To give opportunities for children to develop healthy bodies and to gain enjoyment through physical exercise and basic recreational skills.
- To communicate through drama, mime, movement, music, words and the arts.
- To teach children to be aware of the past, the present and the future both in our own culture, country and religion and to appreciate the influence and contribution of those of other peoples, countries and religions.
- To help pupils to contribute to an environment in which teachers, non-teaching staff, parents, children, visitors and governors, work together for the good of each individual and the community and to apply this awareness to life beyond the school.
- We regard the commitment and involvement of our teachers and staff to be essential to success in achieving these aims and also look to the support of our parents.
