Our Aims and Ethos

We aim to foster an environment where your pupils can Aspire, Believe and Flourish. 

We do so by delivering a rich and academic curriculum that enables pupils to read, write, talk and ask questions across a broad range of subjects.  

As they experience achievement and success, our pupils cultivate a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge. They work hard to continue to achieve success and satisfy their curiosity.  

The four principles underpinning this approach are described below.  

Curriculum at the centre 

Children come to school to be taught and learn. Therefore, we ensure that we have a clear rationale for: 

  • What we teach  
  • Why we teach it  
  • When we teach it 

This is subject to rigorous evaluation by our subject leaders, and the Federation experts. 

13 subjects make up our curriculum. Each subject is valued as a powerful discipline that can help shape our pupils’ future.   

In all subjects, the content is meticulously sequenced to ensure that it builds sequentially and in-depth. The teaching of content is complemented by enriching experiences beyond the classroom. 

We are committed to ensuring that there is equality, diversity and inclusion of different lived experiences across the curriculum. We believe that all our pupils should be able to make sense of their own experiences, and those of people in their community and beyond.  

Exceptional Teaching 

We aim to deliver our curriculum to the highest standards, to ensure that all children achieve success.  

All our staff strive to constantly improve their practice. We talk about teaching. We observe teaching. And we read about teaching to keep up to date with the latest research.

This is supported by a rigorous, evidence-based CPD programme, based upon a shared understanding of the principles of exceptional practice. Our staff partake in weekly training sessions, and also receive weekly, individualised feedback on their practice through an instructional coaching model.  

Exemplary Learning Behaviours 

We insist on the highest standards of behaviour to create an environment where all pupils feel safe, happy and able to succeed. We adopt a simple and consistent behaviour policy that all pupils can understand and adhere to. At the heart of our behaviour policy, is the public celebration of positive choices, attitudes and achievements.  

We have a zero-tolerance towards bullying, or discrimination of any kind. The importance of respecting and valuing others is taught across our curriculum, particularly PSHE.  

Partnership with parents 

As soon as your child joins our school, we hope to build a strong partnership with you. We know that together, we can achieve so much more for your child. We will always listen, share and advise on the achievements, strengths and needs of your child. Every family has something to offer our community.
