Aims of our School

Allendale Primary School provides a creative approach to learning in a happy and nurturing environment. We take pride in our inclusive and respectful ethos, where children’s strengths are celebrated and a life-long passion for learning is inspired. We enable fulfilment of children’s academic and personal potential in partnership with parents and our wider community.

   Our aims:

  • To develop each child’s self-esteem and ensure they feel valued and respected.
  • To provide an environment where children feel safe to learn, take risks and express themselves appropriately.
  • To equip children with the knowledge and skills necessary to flourish academically, preparing them for their next stage of education and beyond.
  • To support and celebrate every child’s individual achievements in all spheres of life.
  • To provide a broad, balanced and creative curriculum.
  • To provide a challenging and stimulating learning environment to enable children to reach their full potential.
  • To work collaboratively with parents, carers and other professionals.
  • To be an integral part of rural village life through shared partnerships with the wider community.

    We will encourage all children to:

  • Communicate and express their feelings and ideas with both peers and adults.
  • Become independent, confident, well-motivated and self-disciplined learners.
  • Develop an attitude of tolerance and respect for all.
  • Learn that they are responsible for their own behaviour and reflect upon their actions and choices.
  • Enjoy their learning by sharing and celebrating their talents and achievements within the school and wider community.
  • Engage fully with their own learning and challenge themselves to excel.
