We recognise that our pupils’ futures will be in a rapidly ever-changing and diverse world - a world that must value, celebrate and protect our surroundings, our environments, our cultures and ultimately our planet. Our pupils will become adults in a world where jobs will be created to solve problems that currently do not exist. Our pupils will need to be flexible, adaptable, critical and creative thinkers as well as being resilient. Our pupils will need to have the confidence and ability to shape the world around them in order that they positively impact the wider world and our planet. Our school vision of ‘Learning Together, Learners for Life, with Ambition, Achievement and Progress for all’ reflects our commitment to instilling a love of learning that we hope will stay with our children long after they leave Smallwood.
