School Aims / Four Purposes
We want our pupils to develop the capacity for lifelong learning, to have a love of learning and to make sure that the learning needs of all pupils are fully met.
We are constantly evaluating and refining our Curriculum within each key stage. The four aims below are the four principles which underpin our work and paint a picture of the type of young people we are aiming to shape and mould, supported through the delivery of the twelve pedagogical principles. The curriculum aims to enable all our pupils to be:
· Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives. Who enjoy learning, make excellent progress and achieve their full potential. Our aim is that pupils become successful learners who can use their thinking skills effectively and who are able to work in a scholarly way.
· Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work.
· Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
· Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society. We aim for pupils to be individuals who make a positive contribution to society and who use their talents and abilities for the benefit of others as well as themselves.
