Our School Ethos
School aims underpin everything that we do. We believe that all people who come to our school, whether staff, pupil, parent or visitor, should be valued as individuals in their own right. We expect respect and courtesy from everyone in our school. Staff strive to provide a model of this behaviour and praise children when they show a caring and cooperative attitude. We teach children to be aware of their own actions, take responsibility for themselves and encourage independence. We understand that children need help in managing their emotions so children are helped to identify their feelings and think these through.
The school values its religious affiliation to the Church of England and Methodist Church. We work in close partnership with the local churches and enjoy support from the local clergy and parish. We aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils.
