Ethos, Vision and Values: THE BIG PICTURE

Pupils, parents, governors and members of our community contributed to the formation of our curriculum. After shortlisting the values that they felt represented the school, we grouped these with our ethos to form the vision and values of our curriculum.

‘Proud to achieve together’

Our curriculum focuses on the quality delivery of a core curriculum enhanced with opportunities and experiences.  It is our intent to develop opportunities and experiences for pupils to be challenged, develop resilience, experience enrichment and discover the world.
