Our Vision, Aims and Values

Our Vision

We ensure all pupils and staff learn together in order to aim high, persevere and achieve within a respectful setting. Tottenhall is an inclusive community where all pupils are nurtured and inspired to be the best they can be.

Our Aims

The staff and the governors work together:

  • To provide an inclusive, nurturing environment where pupils feel safe and are able to learn.
  • To aim high so all pupils achieve their best.
  • To create a stimulating and enabling learning environment, reflecting cultures and customs of pupils within a global community, embracing new technologies.
  • To guide pupils to take responsibility for their own behaviour through positive reinforcement.
  • To develop pupil confidence to become independent and critical thinkers who question the world around them.
  • To promote a healthy lifestyle and develop an appreciation of safe exercising.
  • To ensure that most able pupils are academically, creatively and/or physically challenged.
  • To promote British values and reflect the rich contribution families and the wider community make to the life of our school.
  • All children will be recognised as successful learners whose strengths are valued and whose needs are supported by accepting the differences in others to develop success and achievement for all.

Pupils enjoy the activities they do in lessons. This encourages good behaviour and little interruption to their concentration.
