At Micklands Primary School, our pupils, families, staff and governors share one vision: to be even better tomorrow than we are today.
We believe that an enjoyment of learning and a desire for knowledge and expertise are the foundation of education. Around the school, there are places of interest, challenge, wonder and reflection; all of which create a stimulating environment to inspire and enthuse.
In a culture of support, we celebrate diversity and help children to develop as individuals. Our teachers’ consistently high expectations empower everyone to reach their full potential because we truly believe that every child can succeed. All achievements are celebrated to create a sense of pride and self-worth and in turn, we expect everyone to show the same care and consideration that is shown to them.
We want children to leave Micklands as happy, well-rounded individuals who feel confident about the future and look forward to the opportunities and challenges it will bring.
All of these values are embraced in our school motto:
We aim to ensure that all children develop to their full potential and that we prepare them for the opportunities and experiences for adult life.
We aim to achieve this by providing high quality teaching and learning in a happy, inclusive community.
We aim to provide an education which places importance on the development of the whole child, academically, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially.
We aim to provide a safe and happy environment that raises children’s self-esteem and a balanced creative curriculum that develops the whole child.
We aim to have high expectations for behaviour and achievement. We work closely with the parents of children experiencing difficulties.
We aim to have a strong Governing Body who are committed to our vision and support and challenge us to achieve it.
We aim to provide equal opportunities for learning regardless of gender, culture, race, creed, sexual orientation or ethnic origin, where each person is valued and is made aware that they have the potential to make a positive contribution to the school.
