School Vision & Values
Our Vision Statement – Learning and Growing Together
Our purpose at Damson Wood is to enable the children here to learn and grow together.
Our pupils are taught an ambitious curriculum, covering a wide range of subjects, which supports and challenges everyone to increase their skills and knowledge over time and make sustained progress. We work particularly hard to ensure no child is left behind by providing equally high-quality learning opportunities for all our pupils, including those with SEND.
Our pupils are encouraged to successfully grow in their confidence, self-awareness and emotional intelligence. We focus on the whole child at Damson Wood and our hope is that children instil our core values, including safety, kindness and pride. We treat our children with care and respect and use consistent systems within a positive ethos to support children with their behaviour and to take care of their well-being.
Damson Wood is a close community with a shared vision to provide the best possible learning and growth opportunities for our children from when they arrive in Woodies Childcare to when they leave us to embark on their journey to junior school. Staff work in collaboration with parents to understand and support our pupils in the best way possible and this partnership is highly valued by all. Children come together in many different ways and learn to play and live together successfully.
The learning and growth our children experience at Damson Wood lays a strong and well-grounded foundation for children to continue to progress in the future.
Our teachers and support staff also value the ethos of learning and growing together. They are reflective practitioners and take a highly proactive approach towards their own professional development. Staff are supported to look after their own well-being and take good care of each other. They recognise the efforts and progress of children and their colleagues and, together, have the drive and determination to create the best school for children and adults to thrive in.
We commit ourselves fully to ‘Learning and Growing Together’ at Damson Wood and this aspiration, underpinned by our core SPARKS values, drives all we do.
