It is this community support, together with the caring and commitment from staff, which contributes to the well-being of the children.
The Governing Body, staff and parents are an ambitious and dedicated team, working together to promote the school, and where our aim is to ensure each child reaches their full potential.
At Staplehurst School children definitely come first!
At Staplehurst School, our key aims are to engender the school values in all of the children. These have been discussed and agreed by the children, staff and parents, and are as follows:
Pride, Positivity, Respect, Independence, Determination and Excellence:
Children are encouraged to fulfil their potential through a creative curriculum that meets the needs of all pupils, develops independent and enquiry-based learning skills and offers appropriate challenges so that they might achieve the highest possible standards in all areas of their lives.
Our school is committed to equality as well as safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
