  4. Positive Outlook: "Soaring" suggests the positive and optimistic outlook we have for our children's future. It encourages students and stakeholders to aim high, set ambitious goals, and believe in their ability to overcome challenges and achieve success.

  5. Community Spirit: The aim "Together We Soar" promotes a strong sense of community spirit, where individuals feel connected and invested in each other's well-being and success. This fosters a supportive and nurturing environment that enhances learning and personal development.

It sets the tone and direction for our school's mission and vision, guiding efforts to create a thriving learning community where everyone can reach their fullest potential.


our values and School Rules:

Our school rules of "be safe, be kind, be respectful, try your best" convey our fundamental values and a positive message aimed at fostering a supportive and conducive learning environment. Here's a breakdown of the values and messages behind each rule:

  1. Be Safe: This rule emphasises the importance of physical and emotional safety within the school community. It encourages students to prioritise their well-being and the well-being of others by following safety protocols, being aware of potential hazards, and making responsible choices.  Beyond physical safety, it also encompasses emotional safety, promoting an atmosphere where students feel secure and comfortable expressing themselves without fear of judgement or harm. Children know who they can talk to when they are worried about something or if they don't feel safe. 

  2. Be Kind: This rule underscores the significance of empathy, compassion, and understanding in interpersonal interactions. It encourages students to treat others with kindness, respect, and consideration, regardless of differences in background, abilities, or beliefs. By promoting kindness, our school fosters a culture of inclusivity, cooperation, and positive relationships, which are essential for a supportive and harmonious learning environment.

  3. Be Respectful: This rule highlights the importance of mutual respect and dignity for oneself, others, and the environment. We encourage our students to demonstrate respect through their words, actions, and attitudes towards classmates, teachers, staff, and the school community as a whole. Respect for diversity, opinions, and boundaries is emphasised, creating an environment where everyone feels valued, accepted, and appreciated.

  4. Try Your Best: This rule emphasises the value of effort, perseverance, and personal growth. It encourages students to approach their academic, social, and personal endeavours with a positive attitude and a willingness to exert their best effort. By promoting a growth mindset and resilience, our school encourages students to embrace challenges, learn from setbacks, and strive for continuous improvement, ultimately empowering them to reach their full potential.

Collectively, these school rules communicate a holistic approach to education that prioritises the well-being, character development, and academic success of students. We promote values such as safety, kindness, respect, and effort, which are essential not only for individual growth but also for creating a positive and thriving school community. By internalising and embodying these values, students are not only better prepared for academic success but also for lifelong learning, personal fulfilment, and positive contributions to society.
