Our School's Shared Vision

'All About Learning'

You'll see these words all around our school, on our website and on every key document. When you work in a school, it's easy to get distracted and to spend your time and energy on the wrong thing and servicing the wrong demands. Our school is 'all about learning. That means:

  • 'Learning' dominates everything we do; it rules supreme. If it doesn't support learning & it's not statutory, we don't do it.

  • 'Learning' means ensuring literate, numerate pupils capable of thriving in whatever they choose to do now and in the future.

  • 'Learning' means so much more than maths and English; it's about helping children to learn how to handle success, failure, how to act and manage when something makes them cross or they feel sad or hard done by.

  • 'Learning' means adults becoming better teachers (every adult who works at our school is a teacher) by constantly evaluating the impact of their work and how it can be 'even better next time'.

  • 'Learning' is a process whereby humans get better at everything, every day of their life not just when there's a 'teacher' present.

  • 'Learning' means nobody is perfect, everybody has a desire to get better & be the best they can be.

  • 'Learning' is crippled and can't thrive when children are in crisis and trauma. We must identify short-term and long-term barriers to learning and help children to overcome them.

In summary...it's 'All About Learning'! Only that way will our pupils and school thrive and our core purpose be met.
