Our Vision: The 4Ds
Our school vision is very important to us and sums up everything that we feel is unique and important in our school:
Dream - setting goals and having high aspirations;
Drive - showing determination to tackle challenges which lead to achieving our goals;
Duty – our responsibilities and how we demonstrate these in our actions;
Dazzle – acknowledging our efforts and celebrating our successes.
Our mission is for our children to be secure on the basic skills in English and Mathematics; understanding how to learn, think creatively, take risks and manage change.
We provide opportunities for our children to be active and curious: creating their own hypotheses, asking their own questions, supporting and coaching one another, setting goals for themselves, understanding their progress and experimenting with ideas for taking risks.
Our children are active listeners who are able to express their opinions carefully and confidently, respecting the views of others. Our children understand the value of working both independently and collaboratively; they are able to negotiate appropriately and demonstrate effective peer-to-peer support using their UNITED learning skills.
