• We value each individual within the school community, with positive relationships across the school being based on mutual support, respect and trust.
• We value everybody’s right to learn and to teach in a welcoming, safe, caring, and well organised school environment.
• We value high quality teaching and learning, so that everyone is able to reach the highest level of achievement of which they are capable in all aspects of their learning.
• We value creating enjoyable and worthwhile experiences for the children in order to broaden their experiences and foster their delight in learning.
• We value equality of opportunity and regard for all, through the nurturing of positive self-esteem, motivation, determination and perseverance, which are developed through encouragement, constructive feedback and appropriate target setting.
• We value independent learning and aim to develop individuals who can think for themselves and pursue and develop their learning interests within a safe, structured and stimulating environment which encourages curiosity and perseverance.
• We value the learning process for its own sake and encourage intrinsic motivation, so that individuals can take responsibility for, and control of their own learning throughout their lives.
