Vision and Values

Our vision

The strategic aims are as follows:

  • To be inclusive – we welcome all children and provide challenging educational experiences for each individual.
  • To help each individual to strive to reach his/her full potential through the provision of a motivating and relevant curriculum.
  • To provide an interesting and stimulating environment which reflects the cultural diversity of the school and its community.
  • To provide an atmosphere where learning can be fun for all concerned and appreciated as a worthwhile activity in its own right, not just a means to an end and goes beyond the confines of school.
  • To help each individual to strive to reach their full potential through the provision of a motivating and relevant curriculum.
