Vision & Aims

Our Vision

“Everyone working together for life-long learning”


Our Aims

Every child is motivated to become a creative, independent learner who will reach their full potential.

Every child has the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding to use existing and new innovations.

Every child develops the necessary attributes to participate as a confident and responsible citizen in our ever changing global community.


Code of Conduct

Be there. When people need you, they need all of you. Set aside distractions and judgements to be mentally and emotionally present as a sign of respect. It improves communication and strengthens relationships.

Play. You can be really interested in your work without taking yourself too seriously. Play is a mind-set more than a specific activity. It allows you to throw yourself with enthusiasm and creativity into whatever you are doing, in a way that is natural, not forced. “Playing” with ideas helps you find solutions to everyday challenges.

Make their day. Simple gestures of thoughtfulness, thanks and recognition make people feel appreciated and valued. When you make someone else feel good, you feel good too.

Choose your attitude. Choose how you respond to life, not just react. When you get up, decide who you want to “be” today. Ask yourself throughout the day “What is my attitude right now? Is it helping the people who I’m near? Is it helping me to do my best”

Learning is underpinned by the following values, known as the five R’s.


Our Values (The 5 Rs)

Resilience:
Never give up; set targets and practise; have a positive attitude; find interest in what you do.

Reflection:
Listen to different opinions; learn from mistakes; ask why; stay calm.

Resourceful:
Learn in different ways; use imagination; look at other options; ask good questions; make links; gather evidence.

Risk Takers:
Have a go; don’t be afraid to be wrong; get started; choose a method.

Relationships:
Work effectively as part of a team; know right from wrong; be a good listener; show empathy; share and give reasons.


We continually celebrate our 5 Rs and at the end of each term a child from each class is nominated by their teacher to receive an award for showing one or more of these attributes. Parents/carers of the child are formally invited to this special celebration assembly.
