Philosophy And Aims
Our school philosophy begins with the needs of the child and reaches out towards the family and future. It is essential that the school should be an island of stability where a child can be secure and happy whatever social pressures exist outside. The responsibility for creating that happy, welcoming, secure environment rests with those of us who work in the school, supported by parents, governors and others who work with us to achieve these ends.
Education is life itself. We believe that our School Curriculum should reflect the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical growth. As a result of this feeling and sensitivity should develop alongside knowledge and skills and so enable every individual to be successful. We aim to achieve this by presenting appropriate learning opportunities for our children in a progressive and structured way throughout their experiences at school. We encourage children to analyse their work and reflect upon their achievements, and value the opinion of others. Children are openly encouraged to develop growing responsibility for themselves, their work and their equipment.
We believe that this philosophy will only be realised if it is developed within a happy, secure environment and in an atmosphere of trust, consideration, tolerance and care, existing between all members of the school community.
