Aims & Ethos

School Ethos

The values and attitudes promoted by our team influence the behaviour and attitudes within the school. The quality of relationships and the atmosphere within the school reflect an appreciation of our shared values.

Aims and Objectives

Our school aims to be an inclusive school. We actively seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude individual pupils, or groups of pupils. This means that equality of opportunity must be a reality for our pupils. We achieve this through the attention we pay to the different groups of pupils within our school:

  • Girls and boys;
  • Ethnic and faith groups;
  • Pupils who need support to learn English as an additional language;
  • Pupils with special educational needs;
  • Gifted and talented pupils;
  • Pupils who are at risk of disaffection or exclusion

The National Curriculum is our starting point for planning a vibrant curriculum that meets the specific needs of individuals and groups of pupils. We meet these needs through:

  • Setting suitable learning challenges;
  • Responding to pupils’ diverse learning needs;
  • Overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessment for individuals and groups of pupils;
  • Providing other curricular opportunities outside the National Curriculum to meet the needs of individuals or groups of pupils

We achieve educational inclusion by continually reviewing what we do, through asking ourselves these key questions:

  • Do all our pupils achieve their best?
  • Are there differences in the achievement of different groups of pupils?
  • What are we doing for those pupils not yet meeting their potential?
  • Are our actions effective?
  • Are we successful in promoting racial harmony and preparing pupils to live in a diverse society?

Our Values

Respect – Perseverance – Courage
