Aims & Objectives

Aims and Objectives

Colville School aims to create and enhance a sense of independence, self-confidence and good self-esteem in every pupil.

We want the children to feel that their opinions, feelings and talents are valued.  We achieve this within a climate of friendly support in which high expectations for academic achievement, good behaviour and caring relationships are made clear.

Relationships between staff, staff and children and between staff and parents make a vital contribution to the quality of school life and to teaching and learning in particular.

We are keen to listen to all those who involved with the children of our school.

The school seeks to enable pupils to develop lively and enquiring minds and an ability to apply themselves to tasks.

We endeavour to help pupils acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding which will equip them for life.  To support these aims we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which matches the children’s individual needs and is carefully planned and structured to build on success.

Objectives

The school will provide each child with equal access to a full and wide ranging education in a school where their individual abilities, aptitudes and interests are taken into account.

To this end we aim:
To teach children good working habits, including self-reliance and self-discipline.

To create an environment where each child can contribute as an individual and which fosters positive social attitudes and respect for moral values. To provide opportunities for each child to participate in a wide range of physical, cultural and aesthetic activities.

To lead the children to an understanding of the religions and beliefs that have shaped our culture and to help them to develop their own beliefs and values and thereby to begin to understand themselves.

To communicate clearly, confidently and appropriately in speech and writing and through the use of information technology. To read fluently and accurately with understanding, feeling and enjoyment.

To listen attentively and with understanding.

To develop a sense of wonder and enjoyment of the world around them.
