within a structure which allows for the different needs of individual pupils.

We seek to achieve these aims by:

  • creating a positive working atmosphere
  • using a variety of learning and teaching approaches within a clearly structured framework
  • drawing on a wide range of resources
  • encouraging pupils to work towards realistic but challenging targets
  • monitoring, recording and communicating individual pupil’s progress
  • giving pupils some choice in, and responsibility for, their own learning
  • evaluating current school practices on a regular basis
  • encouraging and providing staff development opportunities

We believe that in achieving our aims we will enable young people to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors so that they may take an active and fulfilling role in the world.
