Our core principles

Ethos

Everyone has the right to learn, be safe and be treated with respect.

Behaviour for Learning 

Embedding the best behaviours for learning is central to all that we do, ensuring that children are able to make the most of their learning opportunities.

Curriculum 

Children are engaged by a creative, relevant and meaningful curriculum which creates memorable learning experiences within a high quality learning environment.

Assessment 

Appropriate assessment which is accurate and ongoing leads to an understanding of the next steps for children’s learning. Effective feedback to the children is fundamental to this.

Teaching 

Staff are deployed effectively and use good subject knowledge to plan and deliver differentiated, inclusive lessons. They provide excellent role models for the children.

Clear objectives, success criteria and rationale are shared with the children.
