Our Vision and Our Values
'To Shine' reflects our high expectations and inclusion of everyone.
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, where we celebrate diversity and difference and acknowledge the richness that this brings to our school community. We aim to provide opportunities for all children to access a broad, balanced and creative curriculum that is personalised to meet children’s individual needs, regardless of age, gender, ability, ethnicity, language or background.
We welcome all children including those who have different learning styles and may be identified as having Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). We have high expectations for our pupils and will ensure that all children make progress in both their academic and social and emotional development.
At Sir Thomas Abney we believe that fostering positive relationships and emotional wellbeing is key to supporting children to develop high standards. We achieve this by encouraging everyone to:
- Take an active role in their learning;
- Develop resilience;
- Make positive choices;
- Be kind to others;
- Talk and reflect on their own wellbeing (and the wellbeing of others);
- Learn from mistakes;
- Volunteer for extra responsibilities.
