We believe in respecting and valuing everyone within a safe, positive and purposeful environment. It is important that everyone learns and develops, emotionally, spiritually, morally, socially, physically and intellectually to the best of their ability.
The ethos of the school reflects the care and concern we have for each other as individuals. Mutual respect, responsibility and positive behaviour are all part of the high expectations of all members of the school community as we work as a team to achieve our potential. Challenge and support for development are given to everybody within the school.
Everyone's strengths and achievements are recognised and praised.
We foster a positive partnership between the school, parents, governors and the wider community.
Our school is welcoming, safe and happy.
We promote the core values necessary to encourage caring confident citizens of the future. Promoting values is a community responsibility and not an imposition from one person to another.
We are committed to the belief that all members of the school community have the right to be treated with respect, irrespective of gender, ethnic background, ability, disability or social circumstance.
