Aims and Vision Statement

We aim to be a fully inclusive school where equality of opportunity is a reality for all.

We pay close attention to the different groups within our school to ensure that all, regardless of age, gender, disability, ethnicity or background are given every opportunity to contribute, learn and achieve to the highest standards.

We believe that values such as kindness, respect, love and honesty are very important and we work hard to ensure our richly diverse and multi cultural community live together in harmony.

We offer a learning culture of high expectations and quality teaching that encourages independence, a growth mindset and a belief that all can succeed.

We can do it, we never give up, because anything is possible!




In our fully inclusive school, we want a flexible curriculum for all of our children, to support them in becoming independent learners with a real love for the enjoyment of learning.


We want them to be creative and innovative with good communication skills – to be great listeners and confident speakers who can draw on a widening vocabulary as they move through our school.


We want our children to have lots of opportunities to build friendships throughout, and to learn to work well in different groups – pairs, threes, teams etc – by the time they reach the end of Key Stage 1.


We want our children to be free thinkers and questioners, ready to evaluate and develop new ideas for themselves – all of this will help our children to be ‘future proof’ as they move on to new settings and opportunities.


From their first days in our school, we want to give the children the opportunity to learn about taking risks in their learning adventures and to do this through outdoor learning whenever they can. We want them to understand that it’s ok to make mistakes, as these help us all to learn even more.


To support all of this, we want the KRIII curriculum to draw on a wide range of topics that include lots of life experiencestrips and ‘wow events’, linking closely to the rich and vibrant community that surrounds our school.

We want our children to be independent, creative learners who develop good communication skills and strong relationships.


We encourage children to be enthusiastic, confident, independent learners through building positive relationships and lifelong skills.

Year 1

We support a smooth transition to Key Stage 1, building children's independence, enquiry and the ability to link ideas.

Year 2

We are resilient and creative learners. We want to make a difference!
