Somerlea Park will work with everyone to create a happy, safe and stimulating school where children learn together. By maintaining high expectations of ourselves and each other, our children will be equipped to encounter opportunities and challenges with resilience and determination.
We value all our children equally regardless of ability or background and good relationships are at the heart of what we do. Providing high quality learning experiences which enrich our children’s lives are at the core of our day to day work. We encourage a curiosity about the world and strive to ensure that our children are prepared for life and will contribute positively, now and in the future.
We expect the very best from our children and push them so that they achieve their potential but do so in a supporting and safe environment; which we believe is the key to helping our children succeed.
Our overall aim to produce children who are ‘Prepared for life’ but who are also caring and well mannered young citizens.
Our vision is shared with the children through many ways, one of which is through our motto PRIDE
P - PROGRESS
R - RESPECT
I - INDEPENDANCE
D - DETERMINATION
E - EXCELLENCE
We want all our children to make the most of every learning opportunity in school and to use this learning across a range of curriculum areas. We make progress by showing...
Respect is a key value in school. We expect all of our children to respect others, respect themselves and respect and value everything in our school and our community.
We encourage our children to show independence in thought and deed, creating a school environment where they can feel supported, yet encouraged to find out for themselves.
We expect our children to be resilient and to show real determination and drive. This is an important personal attribute that allows them to produce the best possible progress and the ability to move forward to the next level without giving in.
Everybody has the capability to become excellent. In life this can show itself in many forms but at Somerlea we expect children to strive to do their absolute best in everything they do
