Vision, Values and Aims

As part of our improvement plan for 2019-2020 we worked with pupils, parents and staff to define our school vision, values and aims.

  • We gathered the views of pupils through class based tasks and workshops.
  • We gathered the views of parents with post-it posters at a number of different events, including parent’s evenings, as well as a survey which was sent to all parents.
  • We gathered the views of staff at a whole-school staff training event.

Thank you all for your valuable input, we learned so much about our school and our learning community.
