School Vision

15th February 2013

Dear Parents/Carers,

Our School Vision

We are developing a new vision statement for our school based on our aims and core values. A vision statement is a short description of what we want the school to look like. This is so that staff, students, parents and everyone involved with us knows what we are planning to achieve and how we are going to do it.

It is important that all stakeholders contribute to this process so that we all agree about the direction the school is heading. Staff, governors and students are involved in discussions about these issues at school and your contribution as parents is also vital.

Many of you will have seen the interactive display at Parent’s Evening and the Share Assembly this week and may already have contributed some ideas. Please help us refine these initial ideas further by completing the attached short questionnaire and returning it to school.

Your support and contribution is greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Vicky Doherty
