Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
Our Vision and Values
A small school for all, making a big difference’
Set children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it –
Our core values are honesty, togetherness, compassion, reverence and wisdom
For ourselves we try to be honest about our mistakes so we can change and improve.
For our school community we strive for togetherness being together as one family.
For the wider world we look for compassion within ourselves so we care for others and help them.
In our Worship we want reverence so we have deep respect for all humanity and their beliefs.
When we are learning we will take time to have wisdom and understand and learn as much as we can then use this knowledge wisely.

We value the importance of and support the current Ofsted guidance. As educators we recognise we have a duty to prepare our children for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe. The British values are:-

We ensure that through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum and teaching we promote respect and tolerance for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles.
In so doing we reinforce British values regularly and in the following ways:
Pupils are keen to support charities, whether local, national or global i.e. Children in Need, Boxes of Hope and Operation Christmas Children.
