Northwood Primary School Mission Statement
The staff, governors, pupils and parents of Northwood Primary School have agreed that together we will strive to ensure that our children are:
Our children will have their self esteem nurtured to enable them to be happy in themselves and achieve their full potential. We will ensure children are confident in their ability. We will ensure they are able to recognise the areas in which they are not as strong and are confident in their strategies for progressing. Our children will be given the opportunity to communicate in a variety of contexts and to a variety of audiences
Able to meet future challenges
Our curriculum, both inside and outside the school day will give the children the skills they need to take to secondary school and beyond. We will encourage them to have aspirations and ambitions. Our children will not only learn to ask questions but to research answers, analyse information and question plausibility. We will prepare our children for a world that is changing and evolving technologically every day. Our children will understand the value of money, be organised and know how to keep themselves healthy and safe in a variety of social contexts.
Responsible members of the community
Our children will be encouraged to be respectful, polite and tolerant of others regardless of their differences, both within and outside of our school community. Our children will be kind and considerate. They will be able to work in teams and communicate their ideas effectively. They will recognise their place in the variety of communities they are part of. Older children will be ambassadors of the school and role models for younger children. Their tolerance and consideration will enable them all to make friends happily with all groups, and to deal with disagreements in a sensible way. Our children will be proud of their school, their wider community and the part they play within those.
We will foster in our children a love of learning, promote their independence and encourage them to ask questions. We will challenge children to 'have a go' and ensure they are not afraid of trying new things or of making mistakes. We will enable them to recognise the value in listening to other people and celebrate their achievements. Above all, our children will be motivated to do their best.
