Vision and Ethos

We work together,

To challenge each other,

To be ever better;

Versions of ourselves.

We are a listening and caring academy, sited in the midst of our community. We will foster happy children with enquiring minds  – children who give and receive respect, care for each other and who will work hard to learn and master the skills and attitudes they need for a successful future in a fast changing world.

Children learn what they live

  • If a child lives with criticism she learns to condemn.
  • If a child lives with hostility he learns to fight.
  • If a child lives with ridicule she learns to be shy,
  • If a child lives with shame he learns to feel guilt,
  • If a child lives with tolerance she learns to be patient,
  • If a child lives with encouragement he learns confidence,
  • If a child lives with praise she learns to appreciate,
  • If a child lives with fairness he learns justice,
  • If a child lives with security she learns to have faith,
  • If a child lives with approval he learns to like himself,
  • If a child lives with acceptance and friendship
  • He or she learns to find love in the world.
