School Ethos

All children need love, care, time and understanding. Their primary education is a vital part of a growing awareness of the wider world, for which they need to gain knowledge and skills essential to life, in order that they become more fulfilled citizens.

It is of the utmost importance that a child is happy at school. We aim to provide a caring, secure and stimulating environment where each child may achieve his/her full potential morally, spiritually, emotionally, physically, aesthetically, socially and academically.

We believe each child to be an individual with individual needs and we endeavour to develop enquiring, confident and independent thinkers and learners, through a curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant to the child. It is important to remember that all children learn in different ways and at diverse speeds.

Children learn best from situations in which they are actively involved. The enthusiasm, energy and stimuli for learning at school come from the relationships between children and their teachers. We have high expectations of our children and together with mutual trust and understanding; this generates active and purposeful teaching and learning.
