MISSION STATEMENT

Singleton C.E. Primary School is a happy and caring community in which good manners, excellent behaviour and a desire to continuously improve and learn

are expected from everybody.

We are a Church of England School teaching Christian values and beliefs.  We also promote awareness and tolerance of, and respect for other religions and cultures.

AIMS

Whilst recognising that every child is a unique individual and developing the ‘whole child’, our aims are that every child will:

• Have equal opportunities to make good all-round progress (academic, physical, personal, spiritual, social and emotional), regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment, background or disability;

• Be taught a wide range of skills and knowledge which will equip them for all aspects of their future;

• Understand the ‘Golden Rule’ that we should treat other people as we would like to be treated;

• Become a confident learner with high self-esteem and a willingness to take a full part in school life;

• Enjoy being here, always do their best, and be a good ambassador for the school;

• Continue to learn and have a positive attitude towards education.

We fulfil our aims by:

• Knowing every child’s needs and ensuring they are met through activities and tasks

which are appropriately challenging to the individual;

• Providing a supportive and nurturing environment to encourage all children to fulfil

their potential;

• Having high expectations of every child regarding behaviour, manners, academic progress and achievement;

• Employing committed and caring staff who like the children and enjoy teaching them;

• Providing small teaching groups with a good staff/pupil ratio and a calm, orderly and disciplined environment;

• Teaching children to co-operate with each other and never tolerating bullying;

• Ensuring all curriculum subjects are taught throughout the school, including swimming, and providing excellent resources, particularly in ICT.

• Providing a wide range of visits, after-school clubs and activities to enrich our creative curriculum and foster good relationships;

• Encouraging parents to take an active role in their child’s learning by keeping them informed via an open dialogue between parents and school;

• Ensuring parents are involved in school affairs – through weekly newsletters, parents meetings, Friends’ activities, etc.

• Joining in religious traditions and celebrations within the Church community and welcoming visitors from another faith.

• Promoting community cohesion by participating in local activities and inviting the community to support and join in school activities.
