Aims and Values

Vision and Values

We believe that every child has a right to learn in a stimulating and caring environment. We aim to make all our children ‘Shine like stars’ and prepare them for life outside school. We will develop the children as confident learners who have every opportunity to reach their potential. We will provide a broad, balanced and inspiring curriculum, making learning an enjoyable and rewarding experience. We believe that children should be happy, confident, tolerant, responsible, and self disciplined. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between school, child and parent.

We will promote British values through our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural curriculum.
