At Strawberry Fields, we intend to deliver a full education and to enable all our learners to be the best possible versions of themselves when they leave us in Year Six. We work closely with parents and carers because we believe the social, emotional and moral growth of our children is as important as their academic progress, and that in fact, by taking care to educate the whole child, we will ensure our children are best placed to perform well not just whilst at Strawberry Fields, but in the next stages of their education too, and beyond that, as citizens of a diverse, modern and changing society.
We aim to model the personal standards we have for our children in our own behaviour and in our interactions with one another, and with children, parents, carers and other members of our wider community. These values run alongside and complement our curriculum.
Our school aims are codified in the statements below.
