Our Aims and Values

The happy and secure environment of our school allows students to reach their fullest potential.  Our model for learning begins with fostering curiosity and enquiry, and emphasises the process and development of skills and concepts.

The school environment creates conditions for effective learning, to stimulate and motivate children to find out about themselves and the world they live in.  Pupils are valued and supported in the process of growing up and developing into adults.

The school will strive for educational excellence in all it does. It will recognise that each individual has a unique set of skills and that each individual is able to fulfil his/her potential.

We aspire for our children and young people to overcome the barriers they face to become:

Successful Learners  who enjoy learning, make progress, choose learning pathways that are appropriate to them individually and achieve their potential.

Confident Individuals  who are able to lead safe, healthy and fulfilling lives and who have high aspirations for themselves, are adaptable and willing to take risks,

Responsible Citizens  who make a positive contribution towards society

We aim to develop key values in all our children and young people:

Compassion  is about caring about others. It is about wanting to help those who are hurting. Compassion is showing kindness to all people.

Hope  is knowing and wanting good things to happen. Hope is doing what we can to make good things happen.

Justice  is making sure that we treat others and ourselves fairly.

Respect  honours the good things that others and we do. Respect values people and things for what or who they are. Respect honours people and things of special worth.

Wisdom   we gain wisdom through learning and doing. Wisdom is knowing what to do. It is knowing right from wrong, good from bad.

Courage is being brave when we are scared. It is being able to do something when we feel bad or fear we might fail.

Resilience  is about being able to stay strong when things go wrong.

Integrity  is being honest. It is being trustworthy. It is being true to yourself and your beliefs.

Responsibility  is taking care of people and things that are ours. Responsibility is keeping our promises. It is doing our duty for our family, school, community and country.
