All children have the right to a happy childhood in an environment that inspires them to play, explore and communicate.

We want our children to be highly motivated learners who respond positively to challenges with perseverance, determination and resilience.

We aim for our children to be confident and independent, to believe in themselves and interact positively with each other.

Our children will learn to communicate well by expressing their own thoughts and ideas and listening to the thoughts and opinions of others.

Our school environment is adaptable to reflect the children's interests and progression.

The organisation of the environment, both indoors and outdoors, will always reflect our school's values and contribute to the learning experience.

Children will have the opportunity to create their own environments and feel pride in their achievements.

Resources are organised in such as way as to promote independent learning.

It is important that the indoor and outdoor environment is closely linked; children need to be in close contact with nature, water, earth, weather and living things.

Everyone sharing this space must respect each other and each other's needs.
