Key Values

There are certain key values which underpin our vision for the school and which prescribe our actions and they are:

Justice: Everything that we do and respond to must be seen to be fair and even handed to all

Self-esteem: The greater the individual feels about themselves the harder they will strive to succeed

Honesty: We should lead our children forward and expect them to behave in an honest, open way

lntegrity: Always expect the children to be proud of their achievements

Compassion: To support those who are less fortunate in life is vitally important

Respect: Always give others the respect that they deserve

Equality: Every individual in our society deserves that same opportunity for advancement and care

Positive: Always praise the positive actions of each and every

lndividual: Responsibility To act in a responsible manner in society, at whatever age, is a very important skill to learn

We believe that if the school, the child and their family can act with these key values as guiding principles, then we are certain of developing fine, well-rounded individuals for the future.
