Vision

 

At the Federation of Orchard and Southwold Primary Schools we are committed to ensuring that every pupil leaves our school with high aspirations, an enduring enthusiasm for learning and the confidence to address the world on their own terms.

We teach key skills and knowledge that leads to understanding and develops the confidence to succeed.

We are committed to providing a caring, happy, welcoming environment that meets the needs of each child and ensures that all children have equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum including interaction with, and appreciation of, the arts.

We develop in children a desire for life-long learning and an understanding of different cultures, traditions and societies and a respect that individual rights and responsibilities are met.

Our learning community is facilitated by a leadership structure which clearly communicates the purpose and direction of the school, and a system of informed continuous professional development. Our professional staff team actively seek to take up opportunities to further their own knowledge and skills.

We are committed to inclusion, believing that every child has the right to succeed.  We take ownership of the responsibility to ensure that any barriers to learning are overcome and that all children experience success in a highly relevant context.

Our parents and community are key partners and we are committed to working together to sustain a strong sense of community, promote educational achievement, raise children’s self-esteem and engender a sense of pride in our schools and communities.
