Vision and Values
See Tomorrow Grow
I proudly set out below, the school’s new vision: See Tomorrow Grow. The journey into tomorrow, starts today. It is the journey of the child – which is at the heart of everything we do and say. With great fervour and ambition, as a staff, we have also worked on the rationale behind our curriculum, setting out our intent, how we plan to implement our engaging and ambitious curriculum, which will be relevant to our school and locality, making learning both meaningful and purposeful. My staff and I acknowledge, that we too are learners, as we embark on enhancing our teacher learning, to strengthen our teaching at Pippins, especially in light of the pandemic and teaching through a variety of platforms. We are now a thinking and reflective school.
See Tomorrow Grow.
Our Vision is a community where all children feel loved, respected and encouraged to develop to their fullest potential. We will help champion and celebrate their multiple identities, and their unique individuality.
Our vision will be to prepare and motivate our children for a rapidly changing world by instilling in them critical thinking skills, a global perspective, and a respect for core values of courage, respect, perseverance, and compassion.
Children will have success for today and be prepared for tomorrow.
We will prepare all children to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens, ready to meet the challenges of the future. In partnership with families and our community, we will create relevant learning opportunities for children — both inside and outside the classroom — that help them develop the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and character necessary to succeed in a technologically advanced world.
We will educate all children to the highest levels of academic achievement, to enable them to reach and expand their potential, and to prepare them to become productive, responsible, ethical, creative and compassionate members of society. Children’s physical and mental health will underpin all that we do, to ensure the needs of the whole child are met.
All children will be empowered to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value the knowledge and skills that will support them, as life-long learners, to participate in and contribute to the global world and wholeheartedly practise the core values of the school.
We grow tomorrow, today.
Our Mission is to provide high quality education in a safe, respectful and inclusive environment that builds a foundation for life-long learning.
We strive to prepare all children to become responsible citizens ready to meet the challenges of the future, and approach life and learning with a sense of wonder.
We believe education should take place in a fully inclusive environment with equal opportunities for all and that all children should learn to value religious, cultural and socio-economic differences. Our school strives to be at the heart of the local community with positive and effective links to the wider and global communities.
We aim to provide a safe learning environment with a welcoming atmosphere which creates a sense of belonging amongst the families. We maintain an inclusive environment which acknowledges and respects children from diverse family and cultural backgrounds.
We aim to foster an enthusiastic, creative community of learners prepared to continue their intellectual, emotional, and physical development.
Our school prepares children for success in the 21st century by engaging them in rigorous and relevant learning opportunities that promote academic, physical, and emotional growth.
Therefore, every child leaving Pippins School is:
o A unique individual
o A global citizen
o A self-motivated learner
These are the set of beliefs and ideas, about the social behaviour and relationships we exhibit and showcase at Pippins, amongst each other and with others.
- Wellbeing (mentally and physically)
These principles will help us to decide what is right and wrong, and how to act in various situations.
