Through careful organisation, the school attempts to give to the children what is best in education. In all our activities we try to work as a family, where members have a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging and a feeling of being responsible to the school and to the community.
We aim to provide activities and experiences each day that are balanced, varied and suitable to the child’s ability and development. These experiments will help each child to learn and to become self reliant and responsible members of the community.
We aim to create a happy, caring environment with an emphasis on making learning fun, where positive relationships are seen as being vital to our success in enabling pupils to achieve the best they possibly can.
Our Aims and Visions
In Creunant we aim to develop learners who:
- Are independent, enthusiastic, confident and feel valued.
- Have a love of learning, an awareness of their strengths and talents, and are able to recognize and celebrate their achievements.
- Have the highest expectations of themselves and the motivation to fulfill their potential
- Are aware that they are part of a wider community (from classroom to global) and have a responsibility to the positive progress of that community.
- Are tolerant and respectful of the beliefs of others and are able to work collaboratively towards a common goal.
We aim to achieve this by:-
- Inspire our pupils every day.
- Providing an emotionally and physically safe environment, which is stimulating and enhances learning.
- Providing a broad, balanced curriculum and a range of teaching strategies which will develop each child’s potential creatively, academically (with an emphasis on key skills) socially, physically, spiritually and intellectually.
- Developing positive partnerships with parents, carers and the local community based on mutual respect and trust.
- Having high expectations of all school staff and Governor’s in a supportive environment which promotes personal and professional development.
- Focusing on high standards in all areas of school and community life.
