School Vision

Believe to Achieve

Our School Vision

We believe that teaching and learning at Hyrstmount should be exciting, purposeful and engaging, empowering our pupils to become confident, articulate, lifelong learners with high aspirations and a sense of pride in everything they do.  By celebrating diversity and through promoting collaboration and respect for all, we will prepare our pupils to become responsible, caring citizens in a modern, multi-cultural society.

SCHOOL AIMS

We aim:

To be an inclusive school and to put into place the practice in all aspects of our work that ensures that all learners are given equality of opportunity and treated fairly.

To promote and achieve high standards for all by providing learning and teaching of the highest quality.

To treat learners as individuals and to differentiate learning and teaching to take account of their individual and special needs.

To provide well for learners’ physical, mental, social, spiritual, moral and cultural needs.

To ensure that all learners benefit from a rich, broad, balanced curriculum presented in an interesting, exciting and imaginative manner with lots of opportunities for first-hand experience, practical work and investigation. 

To teach basic skills and core subjects well so that pupils are literate and numerate. 

To enliven and enrich the curriculum by visits, visitors and extensive use of the environment.

To give responsibility to learners and develop self-confidence by contributing to the school community.

To make parents and the wider community equal partners with the school and to involve them in the evaluation of its success.

To build an ethos marked by a welcoming, friendly, bright and lively, happy place where learners feel secure.  A place where good behaviour is expected and where learners enjoy growing up.  To make this school a place of enjoyment where success is celebrated.

To make provision for the care, health and safety of learners.
