Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.
On a curriculum level, the school aims to:
To create a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment which reflects Christian principles and enables all in the school community to develop their potential, to grow in self esteem, responsibility and value.
Through quality teaching provide a balanced and challenging education to equip children with the skills, knowledge and enjoyment of learning which will enable them to become well rounded individuals, life long learners, to achieve their true potential and to succeed in the outside world.
To nurture a Christian ethos where all feel happy, safe and valued for the talents each brings to school.
To develop lively, enquiring minds taking pride in their own achievements and to develop the ability to work independently and co-operatively with a positive attitude to life and others.
To develop worthwhile citizens who take pride in belonging to our school, church and local community; to foster positive communication between church, school and home.
For all to be well-mannered, tolerant, respectful, self-disciplined and to treat others how we would like to be treated; to promote attitudes of respect and care for our environment.
For all children to be encouraged to develop their intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and aesthetic well being.
To set high expectations for themselves and all they do.
