Ethos, Vision and Values: THE BIG PICTURE

Pupils, parents, governors and members of our community contributed to the formation of our curriculum. After shortlisting the values that they felt represented the school, we grouped these with our ethos to form the vision and values of our curriculum.

To have the best, to do our best, to be the best that we can be by being:

Braver

Individual

Ready

Reflective

Responsible

Stronger

Resilient

Courageous

Positive

Smarter

Open-minded

Inquisitive

So that every child and adult approaches the school day with tenacity and an open mind.

Our curriculum focuses on the quality delivery of a core curriculum enhanced with opportunities and experiences.  It is our intent to develop opportunities and experiences for pupils to become braver, stronger and smarter.
