Values and Ethos


To provide the foundation for the pupil’s intellectual, emotional, physical, social, moral and spiritual development enabling them to achieve their full potential so that they can take their place as life long learners in a globalised world

Together Everyone Achieves More


The International Primary Curriculum Personal Goals underpin the individual qualities and learning dispositions we believe children will find essential in the 21st century. They help to develop those qualities that will enable children to be at ease with the continually changing context of their lives. Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into the learning tasks within each unit of work, and referenced at the end of every task to signpost opportunities for teachers to further develop them.
