We see Knowledge as power
Knowledge gives us freedom to make well-informed, sensible and respectful decisions. Knowledge helps us to learn about ourselves, and about others. It empowers us to understand the world around us and to think beyond our individual experiences.
We value staff learning as much as pupil learning. Therefore, we are relentless in our approach to providing professional development so that our pupils benefit from the very best teaching and learning in every classroom.
We believe teamwork makes the dreamwork
Working collaboratively towards shared goals helps us to achieve success: together we are stronger. Having connection with our pupils builds a community built on trust and support to allow our pupils to solve problems, deal with emotions and manage conflict. Through teamwork, we build a strong network between staff, pupils, families and our wider school community. Teamwork increases personal growth and positive well-being.
We bring our best selves to school every day
When we bring our best selves to work every day, our pupils are supported by adults always doing the best for them. When we are positive role models for our pupils, we show them how to make good choices and take sensible action. Shared high expectations leads to consistency and means that we can hold each other to account. As a result, pupils get the same message from every adult, allowing them to feel safe and loved.
‘Every child deserves a champion - an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the connection and insists that they become the best they can possible be.’
We strive to achieve excellence
Clear and explicit expectations create the safety, order and calmness needed for pupils to reach their true potential. We believe that learning should never be impacted by poor behaviour choices. Staff are not afraid to hold pupils to account for their behaviour so that they can be the best versions of themselves.
