Our vision, values and aims
We have developed a set of Values and ‘Habits of the Mind’ which are embedded in all aspects of our school culture.
We believe that our values must become habitual if children are to be effective citizens and workers in 21st Century. They must be able to communicate, to collaborate in teams, to continuously learn and to function in a data-rich society.
We aim for our children to become effective citizens of the future.
We aim to develop a school community who can:
- Build healthy RELATIONSHIPS by becoming RESPECTFUL individuals.
- Succeed LIVING IN THE WIDER WORLD by becoming RESPONSIBLE citizens.
- Experience positive PHYSICAL HEALTH & WELLBEING by becoming RESILIENT learners.
We will do this by integrating our Habits of the Mind throughout our school culture and curriculum. Children will learn how to be:
- Listen & Understand
- Collaborate & Think
- Question & Reason
- Support & Challenge
- Focus & Sustain
- Review & Repeat
This will provide a road map for individuals, for classrooms and throughout our curriculum, pedagogy and professional development.
In addition to our Values and Vision, we also have our Five Curriculum Principals:
Our curriculum will be:
- accessible to all
- promote oracy
- develop character
- inspire ambition
