Our Vision and Mission
At Allen Edwards we aim to provide the highest standards of education in an inclusive environment, through effective teaching and learning.
We believe that learning should be purposeful, exciting and challenging and we aim to achieve this through a curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant. Our curriculum is underpinned by 5 key drivers which we believe are the steps needed for our children to become successful and independent learners. These key drivers are embedded in our school aims, and underpin our work as a school, and in the community that we serve.
The promotion of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is at the heart of our school curriculum and demonstrated in our school ethos and values of honesty, respect, tolerance, kindness and trust.
Our school drivers
We aim to develop confident learners who take ownership of their learning, are proud of their achievements, are well prepared for life in modern Britain and understand the possibilities ahead of them.
Through positive attitudes and partnerships we endeavour to develop the whole child, meeting individual needs in a safe and secure environment. We are a community of learners and we will work together to maintain a safe and stimulating learning environment, develop an awareness of wider global issues and through our curriculum make strong links with our local and wider communities.
We aim to promote resourcefulness in our learners through encouraging resilience, risk-taking and problem solving skills, developing learners confidence and ensuring that kindness, respect and tolerance is shown towards others.
Collaboration and positive partnerships with individual children, the whole class, our colleagues, with governors, parents and the wider community will lead to effective teaching and learning, high standards and successful learning.
We aim to ensure all learners can communicate effectively with a range of audiences confidently and responsibly. The school’s communication with all stakeholders is key to the success of our school and we aim to ensure all stakeholders have a strong voice within the school.
Each year we set ourselves a list of key priorities for the school to focus on throughout the academic year. These are shared with parents, governors and the school community.
