School Aims

  • We seek to provide a broad, balanced, engaging and exciting curriculum for our children using the Early Years Foundation Stage Learning Goals, the programmes of study of the National Curriculum and the Staffordshire Syllabus for R.E. as a basis for our whole curriculum.
  • We aim to give our children opportunities to develop their interests through school provision of a wide range of after school clubs.
  • As a Church of England School, we maintain links with St Matthew’s Church, Meerbrook and other local churches. Within this Christian ethos, we endeavour to promote sympathetic understanding of other beliefs, tolerance, compassion and empathy.
  • We encourage our children to feel part of the local community and to participate in it actively in order to develop self esteem through an awareness of what they contribute to the wider community.
  • Through the planned curriculum and through the quality of relationships, we aim for high standards for all our children, both in learning and behaviour, leading to a respect for the views of others, thoughtful consideration of their own attitudes, values and beliefs and the ability to work collaboratively with others to share knowledge and solve problems.
  • We aim to challenge and support individuals to achieve their potential as we consider each individual to be unique and valuable.
  • We aim to develop confident, enthusiastic and effective learners with the ability to question and argue rationally, who are curious enjoy learning and who are able to work creatively with imagination.
  • We aim to develop children’s confidence to face change and challenges positively.
  • We aim to enable children to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to become lifelong learners with the skills to work with the new emerging technologies.
  • We recognise and value the contribution parents make towards their child’s learning and aim to provide support and encouragement to parents as educators.
