Central to all aspects of school life are the following values:
Respect: that we will accept each of our children lovingly, without any prejudice or discrimination, so that we may care for each one of them selflessly.
Openness, honesty and trust: that everyone will be clear about all that we do and say and everyone will know that we will stand by it.
Justice and forgiveness: that we will treat each person fairly and always reconcile differences when things go wrong.
Pride: that we will encourage every member of our community to be proud of our school and that the school will also be proud of them.
High expectations: that every adult and child will strive to work to the best of their ability in everything they do.
Our vision is that
Our Mission Statement
In order to effectively implement our vision, values and mission statement, whilst also providing a curriculum that meets with the 2014 National Curriculum statutory requirements, the Inspire Curriculum, published by Cornwall Learning, will be implemented from Year One to Year Six, from September 2014.
The Inspire Curriculum Philosophy
We believe the primary school should be a safe and wonderful place where children want to be: where learning happens both within and outside of the classroom. Children will be encouraged to enjoy life whilst at school and discover their fascinations.
Whatever their background they will learn how to shape their own futures and develop their unique capacities and skills rooted in their own interests. They will learn the literacy and numeracy skills needed for life and necessary to progress in their education. They will be encouraged to be curious and use thinking skills to innovate, be creative and problem solve. They will develop their first understandings of employment and entrepreneurship.
A primary education should set up learners for life, with the knowledge and skills to be well rounded individuals, mentally and physically healthy, with an appreciation for and a generosity toward the people, the world and the universe around them.
