Vision & Aims

Newdale Star

Newdale Primary School and Nursery

A School of ‘doers, believers and achievers’.

Our community matters and our commitment to high expectations for all is at the core of everything we do.

 

We are a learning community where…

  • Learning is a passion for children, staff, governors and parents alike
  • Children are given time to reflect on their ideas, use their initiative and develop independent learning skills
  • Risk-taking is encouraged in a stimulating, supportive environment where children are given the confidence to face setbacks with hope and resilience
  • Every success is celebrated
  • All learners, families and cultures – regardless of gender, ethnicity, faith or disability – are of equal value
  • Children learn to feel safe, happy and supported in their learning and are shown how to maintain this
  • All children develop the self-confidence and courage to believe that they can and will succeed
  • All children experience excellent physical education, school sport and physical activity that will lead to life-long participation
  • Dreams and aspirations are harnessed and nurtured
  • Children learn the signnificance of the basic principles of equal opportunities, justice and human rights. They become increasingly aware of the significance of these principles to citizenship and democracy, preparing themselves for life in modern Britain 

The Iron Giant

“To become the person I need to be

To go further than I thought
To run faster than I hoped
To reach higher than I dreamed
To become the person I need to be”
