Ethos & Values - these can be summed up simply as, 'WE CARE'

 

The Educational Challenge

Education is not concerned only with equipping students with the knowledge and skills they need to earn a living.

It must help our young people to:

  • use leisure time creatively
  • have respect for other people, other cultures and other beliefs
  • become good citizens
  • think things out for themselves
  • pursue a healthy life-style
  • value themselves and their achievements

It should develop an appreciation of the richness of our cultural heritage and of the spiritual and moral dimensions to life. It must, moreover be concerned to serve all our children well, whatever their background, sex, creed, ethnicity or talent.

It is the primary school teacher who must begin to fulfil these objectives.  If children do not leave primary school with a firm grasp of the basic skills of literacy and numeracy, with an appetite for learning and with a belief in themselves and their talents, their future progress will inevitably be negatively affected.
