All the experiences that the children have during and because of their time at school form part of their learning and are included in our understanding of ‘curriculum’. Children learn best when they are able to make sense of their learning through active, language-rich experiences within, outside, and beyond school.

The physical and emotional environment reflects our identity and values as a community but also provides the vehicle to celebrate our achievements. We encourage children’s involvement in the school environment to support their learning as well as their understanding of wider environmental issues.

All monitoring and evaluation activity in school will support the stated aims of our vision and everyone within the school community has a role to play. We aim to make the links between our vision, our aims and our practice explicit and transparent.

We believe that children’s well being, enjoyment and learning go hand in hand and are at the heart of everything we do. We aim to enable children to become effective learners who take pride in their own progress and achievements as they continue on their life-long learning journey. Four areas underpin our vision;
