Our Vision and Values
Our school, which opened in September 2016, was built in the area known as the Northern Gateway to the north of Britain’s oldest recorded Roman town, Colchester. An area that has been developed to create a place where local people and visitors alike can choose how they can shape healthy, active lifestyles for themselves and their families.
We are a vibrant and dynamic community and provide a rich and exciting curriculum to develop the confidence and enthusiasm for learning that will take our pupils through Primary to Secondary and beyond.
We teach key skills and knowledge that lead to understanding and develop the confidence to succeed.
We are committed to providing a caring, happy, welcoming environment that meets the needs of each child and ensures that all children have equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum including interaction with, and appreciation of, the arts and many opportunities for wider enrichment.
We develop in children a desire for life-long learning and an understanding of different cultures, traditions and societies as well as to respect individual rights and responsibilities.
We are committed to inclusion, believing that every child has the right to succeed. We take responsibility to ensure that any barriers to learning are overcome and that all children experience success in contexts that are highly relevant for them.
Our parents and community are key partners and we are committed to working together to sustain a strong sense of community, promote educational achievement, raise children’s self-esteem and engender a sense of pride in our school and communities.
