Aims & Values

OPPORTUNITY

We believe that children have the right to learn in a safe and secure environment. They deserve quality education in small classes. We understand that learning is a very broad experience and so we use specialist teachers in physical education, music, drama and French. Classroom learning is supplemented by use of the outside environment in the school grounds, educational visits and residentials.

DIVERSITY

We believe that children develop cognitively, emotionally and physically at different speeds depending on a variety of factors.  In our classroom practice we account for these differences by adopting a range of teaching strategies and practices.  We welcome children from all religions and none, as well as children from many different countries.

EXCELLENCE

We believe that every child has the potential to achieve excellent results. For some, this can be measured academically, for others it might be on the stage, in music or in sport. For others, excellence is measured in terms of progress and development. Today this is referred to as ‘value added’.
