  • to be an inclusive school providing equal opportunities for all children, irrespective of ability, gender, age, colour or religious belief;
  • to promote independence, responsibility, respect and tolerance in our children;
  • to value and celebrate children’s achievements and to build every child’s self esteem;
  • to promote high standards of responsible behaviour so that children are considerate of others and respect one another and their environment;
  • to maintain a well ordered daily routine, with high expectations of work, punctuality, appearance and manners;
  • to provide opportunities for all staff to develop their knowledge and expertise so as to improve teaching and learning;
  • to involve parents in the school partnership on a daily basis and to promote links with the local community;
  • to have high expectations of all and to help in the formation of values and attitudes which are relevant to the challenges of life;

  • to offer a range of extra-curricular activities, which build upon the good relationships expected.
