“Working together to achieve success for all”
The school works hard to ensure that it is a place where everyone is valued and behaves with respect and consideration towards others where:
They provide a secure, caring and welcoming environment, where children can develop their skills and creativity and learn to work independently.
They enable children to become confident, enthusiastic and respectful, whilst maintaining an awareness of others.
They give all children a broad, balanced and creative curriculum ensuring progression, continuity and an understanding of individual children’s needs while striving to achieve the highest possible standards.
They encourage children to feel proud of themselves, their school and their learning.
They develop in children a sense of responsibility for themselves and the choices they make.
They help children develop understanding and respect for religious, moral and cultural differences within our community.
They maintain a strong, positive partnership between home and school.
They look to forge close links with the local community and enlist their support in helping the school meet its aims. We have particular links with Cavendish Community Association and The Firs Care Home.
The children are active participants in music-making, including clarinet, recorders and guitar, or our school choir which recently made an appearance at the O2 in London.
The pupils are outside in all kinds of weather. They particularly love the Forest School. Set in a secure area of woodland within the school playing field, Forest School allows children to explore, investigate, discover and develop a wide range of skills through the natural environment. It works closely with the National Curriculum adding another very valuable dimension. The school is a silver Eco school.
The school has recently been awarded the Silver Sainsbury’s School Games Mark.
The school has also been awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark for the third time and has been accredited as a Communication Friendly school.
