No outsiders in our school

Children arrive in school from a wide range of starting points, each with their individual strengths and challenges. To treat then with equality, to be useful and kind, we seek to treat each child according to his or her need.

Some pupils need praise and affirmation for very small things, for others to thrive it is important we expect more from them than what they can do easily. What is important, is that praise and affirmation are for the 'over and above' effort children put in: to their learning, their personal and social development and of course, to their learning.

We aim to represent the diversity of families we serve, in our culture and through the curriculum. We welcome all our children and families. Books in the library, maths problems and literature in class represent the diversity of beliefs, people and families in modern Britain and in school.
