Vision Statement/ SEMH Provision

Our vision is to create a nurturing school community where children succeed and are proud of their achievements.


  • Our school was specially selected to take part in a new initiative called Restorative Thinking which helps develop positive self – talk, empathy and responsibility for our actions. All staff are trained in this practice. Restorative conversations help us understand our feelings and how we affect others. By building strong relationships in our community and beyond, we strive to live in harmony and look for peaceful ways to solve our differences.
  • Our Positive Behaviour Policy compliments Restorative Thinking. It is credited to the work of Paul Dix, a behaviour specialist. We have a calm, consistent approach to behaviour and pay first attention to the best conduct. Children are recognised for going above and beyond the expectation for everyday behaviour and work ethic.  Every child is shown the dignity they deserve and helped to understand their emotions and ways to improve relationships with others. We will continue to embed our behaviour policy and involve the whole community in training. As Paul Dix says ‘When the adults change everything changes.’
