Learning and Thriving Together
At Elm Grove we have a culture of care and respect where “fair” means that everyone gets what they need, not that everyone gets the same. In other words, we aspire to meet the needs of all children.
We believe in a child centred approach to learning that is firmly based on the principles of inclusion, equal opportunities, global education and cultural diversity.
Our abiding aim is to work in an atmosphere where:
- Every child and adult is valued and can make a meaningful contribution to school life
- Children can be stimulated through excitement and enjoyment to reach their highest standard
- A culture of care and respect is dominant
- We celebrate diversity
- We work in partnership with our parents and the wider community
At Elm Grove we believe the concept of lifelong learning. We maintain that learning should be a creative, rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able make informed choices about the important things in life.
Underpinning our curriculum is the rigorous and systematic teaching of the basic skills; speaking and listening, reading, writing, numeracy and IT.
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school. We respect the diversity of our community by celebrating and learning from our differences. We believe that relationships are the key to a successful school. We work hard to develop positive and supportive relationships between all members of the school community and our golden rules help us to do this:
We will always foster good relationships in our school and strive to create a vibrant, positive and memorable learning journey for all members of our community.
