VICTORIA COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL
THE SCHOOL ETHOS
All children need love, care, time and understanding. Their primary education is a vital part of a growing awareness of the wider world, for which they need to gain knowledge and skills essential to life, in order that they become more fulfilled citizens.
It is of the utmost importance that a child is happy at school. We aim to provide a caring, secure and stimulating environment where each child may achieve his/her full potential morally, spiritually, emotionally, physically, aesthetically, socially and academically.
We believe each child to be an individual with individual needs and we endeavour to develop enquiring, confident and independent thinkers and learners, through a curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant to the child. It is important to remember that all children learn in different ways and at diverse speeds.
Children learn best from situations in which they are actively involved. The enthusiasm, energy and stimuli for learning at school come from the relationships between children and their teachers. We have high expectations of our children and together with mutual trust and understanding; this generates active and purposeful teaching and learning.
Victoria Community School is an excellent, forward thinking school where we have the most dedicated, dynamic and enthusiastic teaching team, support staff and governors of the very highest calibre. Together, we make our school a safe happy caring environment where every child is valued, challenged and listened to and where together we strive to develop confident, independent pupils who are able participate fully in the school community and society at large.
The stars of our school are of course, the children themselves. Very few visitors fail to comment on their politeness, energy and enthusiasm! I feel very privileged and proud to lead their learning – they deserve the best.
Every decision within the school is made by firstly considering what is in the best interest of the children. In this way, children lie at the heart of everything we do. We look forward to working with you and your child so that Victoria Community Primary School can continue to be the popular and very special place that it is today.
Parents are encouraged and welcomed as partners in their child’s education as we believe that our children learn best when members of staff and parents work in close partnership and so we value your involvement with your child’s education. It has indeed been proven that when parents and schools work closely together, the well being, progress and achievement of the child can accelerate at a remarkable pace.
As the new Headteacher of Victoria Community Primary School, my number one priority is to ensure that every child succeeds in all areas of the curriculum and school life. Children only get one chance at school and I’m determined to ensure that every child who attends this school will receive a first class education which will prepare them for the rest of their lives.
Please take a moment to read the Home/ School Agreement on page 17 of our school prospectus. This clearly sets out the role we all play in our children’s education.
I look forward to working alongside you and your children.
