‘It takes a whole village to educate a child’– African proverb
We believe that successful learning depends on:
- How we feel about what we are doing (motivation, self-confidence)
- The opportunities we have (quality of teaching and learning experiences provided)
- Having the right attitude to learning (skills to be able to learn and access to knowledge)
- Having supportive people around us (family, teachers and external agencies who can help)
We aim to:
- Create a safe, welcoming calm environment in which we can all learn.
- Meet the needs of all individuals and enable them to achieve their full potential.
- Challenge everyone to be the best they can be by overcoming barriers to learning.
- Provide a variety of creative and exciting learning opportunities.
- Encourage independence, motivation and an eagerness to learn.
- Involve everyone in making a positive contribution to the community we work in and beyond.
- Ensure everyone has a voice and is heard.
- Inspire our school community to become caring, respectful and inclusive global citizens in our diverse world.
