- Develop their independence and skills to work in collaboration with others
- Take pride in themselves and their work.
- Are ambitious and confident learners.
- Show engagement in their learning, asking questions and showing enthusiasm
- Show resilience – when things get tough, they don’t give up!
Active citizens who …

Challenge and Educate
Throughout our curriculum we promote a ‘Challenge & Educate’ philosophy. Through studying a range of people from the past and present, locally and globally, children are taught to challenge stereotypes connected to gender, wealth, disability, cultural and religious background and are educated that differences should be celebrated and are not a barrier to achievement or relationships.
