Our Vision, Our Aims, Our Ethos and Values
Our vision for our whole school is to ensure every child makes good progress in all areas of learning and for them to develop the personal qualities that enable them to take their place in society. This is expressed in three key words:
“Enjoy, Dream, Discover”

develop all our children to make the best possible progress they can academically
provide a broad curriculum that has, as one of its foundations a rich source of ‘Cultural Capital’
ensure that everything we do is wholly inclusive to all our children
help every child to develop into successful citizens who are well-prepared for the next stage of their education and ultimately for life in Modern Britain
