OUR VISION FOR WATERMORE

 

At Watermore we believe that all children should enjoy their time in school, in a happy, secure and stimulating environment, where they are cared for in a warm and professional way, by a dedicated team of staff, committed to achieving high standards in every aspect of school life.

 

We believe that home and school should work in partnership, to encourage our children to reach their true potential and develop a lasting enthusiasm for learning, whilst gaining self-esteem, independence and a sense of responsibility for themselves and each other.

 

We work as a united team across our two sites to make our school into a place of great pride for the community.

 

 OUR AIMS BRING OUR VISION INTO REALITY

  • Understand our children as individuals and work to meet their particular needs
  • Value their individual contributions to the life of the school

  • Have high aspirations for what all can achieve
  • Encourage, recognise and reward excellence
  • Give a wide range of opportunities and activities to enable children to develop their own personal strengths

  • Encourage parents and community members to be actively involved in the life of the school
  • Respond to parents’ concerns promptly and effectively
