Quite simply, our motto, “Inspiring an ambition to learn,” underpins everything we do here and what our vision for education is at Martins Wood.
We aim to inspire children in all kinds of ways. We aim to develop their ambition to strive for everything they want to achieve in their life, whether that be academic, sporting or artistic success. Above all, we aim to ensure that they will develop a life-long love of learning.
Today’s children are growing up in an ever changing and exciting world. They will often need to learn new skills as technologies develop and change. The most important skill for the future will be knowing how to learn- and being self-motived and engaged to do so. That’s what we want to give our children. We want them to love learning and know how to learn. We want to inspire them to go on to great things; we want them to have ambition for their own learning and lifetime achievements.
To help us achieve this our aims are:
to provide equality of access and opportunity to enable every child to reach his or her full potential socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically
to teach each child to be courteous, trustworthy and considerate, and to value and respect all races, religions and ways of life
to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and National Curriculum within a broad and balanced educational programme
to provide a welcoming, attractive, stimulating and secure learning environment
to help all children to enjoy and take a pride in their learning
to help every child to become increasingly able to work independently and co-operatively
to develop appropriate attitudes towards safety and good health
to value the contribution that parents make to their child’s learning and to develop a partnership to support all children
to support the professional development of staff
