Mission Statement - Ethos and Values

Illuminating Valuable Years, Building and Nurturing Knowledge.

Ivy Bank Primary will be an inclusive school where all are treated equally and given equality of opportunity regardless of gender, special needs, disability or race. To this end teachers and classroom assistants will provide a tailored approach to support learners with SEN – learning will be focused on individual pupils’ needs and abilities.

Literacy and Numeracy will be the backbone of children’s’ success in learning. This school will drive its own improvement, set our own challenging targets and develop assessment for learning, which enables knowledge about individuals to inform the way they are taught and learn.

All will benefit from a rich, broad, balanced curriculum that will be presented in an interesting, exciting and imaginative manner with lots of opportunities for first hand experience, practical work, investigation and learning through play. We will enhance the curriculum whenever appropriate by visits, visitors and use of the environment.

Success will be promoted and progress and achievement rewarded.

Parents and the wider community will be seen to be partners with the school.

Ivy Bank will be a welcoming; friendly, bright and lively, happy place where children come first and feel secure so they enjoy growing up.
