To give great emphasis to the celebration and communication of pupil achievements, thus enabling a positive impact on parents, the local community and the pupils themselves.

Do everything we can to ensure that people in the local community see our school and pupils in a positive and informed light. To enable our pupils to develop into good citizens and to participate actively in their local communities. To offer opportunities and experiences for pupils to learn in a multitude of different ways and through a rich, varied and individualised curriculum.
