School Mission, Values & Aims
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.
|Resilience – Emperor penguin|
|Teamwork – Honey bee|
|Creativity – Octopus|
|Flying High – Skylark|
