Our Vision and Values
‘Happy learners forging our place in the world’
This is an aspirational message supported by everyone in school which we will all do our best to achieve. It should help us as we go forward, providing clarity and direction.
Happy – having fun, fulfilling potential, flourishing, being safe, cared for and nurtured.
Learners – being enthused, engaged, motivated and inspired. Being able to work independently and collaboratively. Being aspirational and ambitious. Developing a strong moral compass.
Forging – not giving up in the face of challenge, recognising that effort and a positive attitude is the root to success.
Our place – sharing responsibility for what happens, taking our place in the local and global community.
World – being proud to be part of the local and wider communities and appreciating the similarities and differences within them. Developing a tolerance and respect for and an understanding of the world.
Curbar School aims to work in partnership with parents, the community and the local authority. We believe that school life should be enjoyable and learning should be fun and it is our aim that each child will be happy and motivated, will have positive feelings about themselves and their school and will look back with great fondness upon their time at Curbar.
