PHILOSOPHY

The school’s primary aim is to recognise each child as a unique individual with particular needs, and to maximise the growth of each in the academic, cultural, sporting, emotional and social dimensions. The school seeks to achieve this aim by: •

Developing the skills of communication, literacy and numeracy. • Embracing our rural “family-like” environment, and fostering interaction between all levels of pupils. •

Actively encouraging personal qualities such as honesty, independance, self-confidence and concern for others. • Offering attractive well-resourced and well-maintained facilities. • Preparing senior pupils for transition to secondary school.
