School Mission, Values & Aims

 

Mission

Our mission is…

‘To create a learning community that is prepared for an ever changing future; that believes in the unlimited potential to improve themselves and others in the world around them.’

 

For us to achieve such a mission, we have thought of four key values that will aid us. They are: Resilience, Teamwork, Creativity and Flying high. To make it easier for us all to understand, we have assigned an animal to each value that represents it the best.

 

Values

Resilience – Emperor penguin
Teamwork – Honey bee
Creativity – Octopus
Flying High – Skylark

Our main pedagogy is Active Learning. This is a hugely engaging approach, which ensures that all of our children succeed and love to learn. Children work towards an authentic outcome which creates a sense of purpose to their learning. REAL Projects enable all pupils to create extraordinary work that matters.
