Our Vision, Ethos and Strategic Direction
Our school is like an oak tree
Roots give the tree a strong base from which to grow and develop. Roots represent our ethos and values – the way the whole school community – staff, children, parents and carers, and the community – behave towards each other which provides the secure foundation upon which the school can grow.
The trunk of the oak tree provides the core direction of the tree. Branches are the framework on which grow the leaves and on which the acorns are produced. Trunk and branches represent our strategic direction and long term plan to get to where we want to be over the next five years and to secure our vision. Branches are like the structure of our governing body and staff committees through which the plan will be acted upon and monitored to achieve our vision.
