        We aim for a school:

 

*That is a safe, happy and beautiful place where people are supportive of one another

 

*That is unique and visionary

 

*Where the curriculum is exciting and challenging

 

*Where children are given opportunities to excel in all areas of school life

 

*That is respectful of differences and allows individuals the freedom to grow academically, personally and socially
