- Teaching, Learning and the Curriculum – to teach pupils to understand others, to promote common values and to value diversity, to promote awareness of human rights and of the responsibility to uphold and defend them, and to develop the skills of participation and responsible action.
- Equality and excellence – to ensure equal opportunities for all to succeed at the highest level possible, removing barriers to access and participation in learning and wider activities and eliminating variations in outcomes for different groups.
- Engagement and ethos – to provide a means for children, young people and their families to interact with people from different backgrounds and build positive relationships, including links with different schools and communities locally, across the country and internationally.
We encourage our children to feel part of a community, at a local, national and international level and have a number of projects underway to support this.
Our children take a very proactive role in the local community through Sport, Drama, Music Clubs and Arts based projects such as Carol singing in the Jubilee Centre, the We Love Marlborough Arts Festival and the Christmas Choir competition. Visitors are always welcome in the school and the children always enjoy the visits from villagers who come into school and share their skills and experiences with them.In 2015 we began to work very closely with 3 other one form entry primary schools in the area ( Ramsbury, Great Bedwyn and St Michales at Aldbourne) to provide support for teachers and opportunities for year groups to work collaboratively.
We work collaboratively with the Marlborough collaborative partnership of 13 primary schools and beyond, including schools across Wiltshire and in different circumstances to our own.
In 2010, with the generous support of the Alcatel-Lucent Foundation, we set up a link with the Ninglang Hope School in Yunnan Province in China. This experience provided the children on both sides with a first-hand understanding of the lives and culture of counterparts across the world, shaping them into young global citizens. The children exchanged videos, gifts, emails, photos and other creative materials to teach each other about important holidays and life events. We also have a very active link with The Marie-Creney Enfant Jeunesse School in France and we are developing a link with the Grange School in Lagos.
