Our Vision

When our students leave St Philip’s School they will take with them a love of learning by having:

– the ability and desire to build on their knowledge and skills

– a strong set of practical, social and emotional life skills

– a sense of personal achievement

– a sense of personal pride in themselves, their school and their community

 

To achieve this we will:

– develop successful learners who are confident, inquisitive and independent

– create a culture of learning and discovery that is stimulating and enjoyable for both children and staff

– ensure that our staff work together expertly and enthusiastically to deliver our curriculum to the highest possible standard in a safe, caring and positive environment

 

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
