Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
At Marden Vale C.E. Academy our vision is :
- to develop caring, confident citizens who will always love learning,
- have high expectations of themselves in everything that they do, and
- who embrace excellence and enjoyment and out one school rule -
"We all look after each other"
We ask parents to help us achieve this by:
- Ensuring their children come to school feeling confident and positive,
- Ensuring their children arrive at school punctually, regularly, and in the correct uniform,
- Sharing information with us that will help us to help their children at school,
- Supporting their children by attending curriculum evenings and parent/teacher consultations,
- Supporting their children by becoming actively involved in their education,
- Supporting extra-curricular activities and school events.
In order to give our children the best chance of achieving these aims, we will give them high-quality professional support by :
- providing a friendly, caring, safe and happy school,
- helping staff achieve their potential through teamwork and mutual respect,
- working with parents for the benefit of their children's education,
- providing a broad and balanced curriculum,
- using a variety of teaching and learning styles in a stimulating learning environment,
- acknowledging the individuality of each child and planning work in response to their needs,
- developing their independence and self-motivation,
- giving children opportunities to reflect on their work and behaviour,
- providing an enriched programme of extra-curricular activities, visitors to school and visits out of school,
- removing boundaries to learning for all.
We aim to work with our children to enable them to :
- leave school with happy memories and a feeling of pride,
- have high self-esteem, self-confidence, independence and resilience,
- make and maintain relationships and work co-operatively with others,
- develop lively, flexible and enquiring minds that are open to new ideas,
- develop, in a balanced way, spiritual, moral, social, cultural, personal and academic qualities - and thus prepare them for the wider world,
- develop an appreciation of Christian Values
- become effective, resourceful learners with high motivation and good work habits,
- set their own high standards and make the best possible progress in all areas of the curriculum and beyond,
- respect themselves, others and the environment,
- have equal access both physically and through the curriculum for all children regardless of disabilities.
