We wish to spark a desire to explore different places around the world and an interest in learning other languages in the future.
We strive to provide a questioning culture in which all our children are encouraged to reflect on matters of human responsibility and to think very deeply about the world and their own behaviour, personality and beliefs; they learn not only the facts about different religions but also about themselves and their place within the wider world. We celebrate diversity and challenge our children to think about a wide range of issues from different viewpoints. At every opportunity, we examine topical issues that help our children understand how individuals and communities can be impacted by events and circumstances in the world around them.
Our whole curriculum aims to help our pupils gain awareness and understanding of the wider world – and their place in it. Through various projects, initiatives and learning opportunities, our pupils are encouraged to take an active role in the community and work with others to make our planet more peaceful, sustainable and fairer. We encourage our pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and values they need to engage with the world and teach them that we can all make a difference.

The well-being of our children is paramount and we aim to equip them with the skills needed to be well-balanced, happy, confident and healthy members of British society. We nurture our children’s understanding of mental health and well-being as well as teaching them to understand the importance of maintaining physical health.

All children achieve their potential through well-pitched, challenging learning that meets their needs.
We passionately believe that it is our responsibility to teach our children to speak, read and write fluently so that they can effectively communicate their thoughts, feelings, ideas and learning about the world around them.
