Vision and Ethos

At Offmore Primary school, we strongly believe that if our children are to become confident adults in an ever changing and evolving world they need to have developed independent thinking and learning skills and have a secure understanding of how to use these skills effectively.

When children have a strong emotional connection with their learning and desire to succeed they can amaze us all with their achievements.  To enable this in all our children we develop a desire to understand and take risk, build strong peer support and develop the ability to reflect and ask questions.  Fundamentally we learn together and challenge each other to challenge ourselves and test our thinking.  “Mistakes” is a reference referring to errors rather than an opportunity to learn and progress.  We focus on these moments as integral to success, enabling us to refine, develop and improve.

Using a wide range of information from the children, assessment information and the next learning steps we are able to ensure that new topics are designed to meet the needs of all our children.  This approach enables excitement throughout the journey as we work so closely with our children to meet their needs.

As a mission statement to capture this approach to learning we pride ourselves upon building

"Foundation for a Lifetime of Learning"

To achieve this we have six core principles.                                                                                                             
  • Provide our pupils with a safe, caring, happy, challenging yet supportive, rich learning environment where everyone feels valued, every child is an individual and the whole child can develop and flourish intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially.
  • Ensure quality teaching and learning constantly takes place throughout the school and that the highest standards are expected in all aspects of school life.
  • Deliver a stimulating, exciting curriculum that enables us all to enjoy learning, make progress and achieve our full potential by developing a positive attitude towards learning.
  • Nurture our pupils to enable them to become independent, confident life-long learners.
  • Ensure every child feels safe, secure and happy.
  • Make school a fun, exciting place to be.
