Strategic Objectives

The Governors have set the following strategic objectives to drive improvement through the School.

Children’s Achievement:

Provide a rich curriculum which excites and challenges every child to adopt a growth mindset to learning. We will nurture a special interest in every pupil, whether it be academic, sporting, artistic or musical. We strive for achievement with enjoyment.

Community Focused:

To work closely with the local community and churches, to build a strong relationship that enriches the learning of pupils, supports the community, and embeds a Christian ethos within the School.

Staff Development:

To value our staff and governors and their development, to ensure we have passionate individuals who deliver high quality learning every day.

Engaged Parents:

To communicate and engage with our parents to enable them to be active in the education of our pupils.

Learning Environment:

Utilise all our physical assets to their maximum, and maintain high standards of behaviour, to ensure that pupils can learn in a safe and positive environment.
