Our Vision Statement explains the school’s vision, aims and values. Click here to read a PDF version of the statement. This statement was updated recently by the whole staff, drawing on ideas from children and parents, and is key to the ethos of the school.
We have three main values that are shared across the school: Respect, Determination and Responsibility. These are embedded in all that we do, they are shared in assemblies and every week a child from each department who has demonstrated the values in some way during the week, is chosen to receive the Values Medal. Their photo is then displayed on the ‘Values Wall’.
Our School has children from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and religions. Inclusion is key to the ethos of the school where everyone is valued, whatever our difference. The school attained the Inclusion Quality Mark again recently and we work hard to involve everyone in school life. Parents are invited to assemblies throughout the year to celebrate Eid, Christmas, Harvest and Passover as well as other events such as Black History Month which we celebrate each year. In addition to this, we hold a special Eid celebration and various Christmas celebrations with the whole school joining together to celebrate each other’s festivals.
