Aims & Ethos

Our Aims

To demonstrate, by actions, strong Christian values and so help the children develop their own personal faith and values to equip them for future life.

To help each child develop a lifelong love of learning.

To, engender a sense of self worth, self-confidence and self esteem in each individual.

To ensure that each child has the confidence to ask questions, and make their own choices and decisions.

To ensure that each child can work co-operatively, showing respect, empathy and tolerance for the views of others.

To ensure that each child leaves our school equipped with the social and practical skills needed for everyday living.

To ensure that every child has a clear understanding of good health and a healthy lifestyle.

To achieve these agreed aims of our School we will:

Work in the context of a warm and welcoming Christian ethos so that the love of Jesus Christ will be evident to all.

Educate the whole child by presenting a total experience, which is right and relevant to his/her individuality, thus fostering the child’s intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual development.

Teach a broad and balanced curriculum by carefully planning and delivering the National Curriculum followed by an assessment of the child’s progress; we also provide time for reflection and evaluation by the teaching staff.
