Aims and ethos

The aim of this school is to foster a happy and stimulating environment in which each child can prosper academically, socially and emotionally. The school will prepare all children for their continuing education and enhance their awareness of the world in which they live, sending them on to their next school well prepared for the challenges ahead.

Our main aims are:

  • To treat each child as an individual
  • To encourage a love of learning
  • To teach skills, knowledge and concepts
  • To develop spiritual, social and cultural value within a caring Christian ethos
  • To prepare children fully for the next step

We believe that every child has the right to an education that suits their individual needs and that our experience and teamwork will create the opportunities for this success. We provide for these needs by enabling our children to gain knowledge and skills in all areas of development, not just the academic.

Through their commitment, our staff will foster a sense of value in each individual. We give praise and encouragement, instil a sense of worth and enable each child to feel an integral part of the school community. In this way, each child is seen as a valued contributing member of our school, not just a recipient of knowledge and learning.

At the heart of our drive for best practice are the consistent personal qualities of the Conifers team: enthusiasm, commitment, respect, kindness and a sense of humour.
