At Sharneyford we take pride in developing outstanding teaching and learning by holding the highest expectations of all our pupils and knowing the children well. We challenge all children to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.
Our students are given time to explore subjects and develop deep understanding. We celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking, ensuring children welcome challenge and are not frightened to make mistakes. We encourage children to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to quality feedback. Children are praised for hard work, determination and having a positive attitude.
In order to create an inclusive school where everyone can flourish, whatever their background, we promote an ethos of respect and empathy. Diversity is valued and celebrated - both within school and the wider world. Safeguarding and welfare is extremely important and pupils are taught the virtues of kindness and appreciation. We foster open and honest communication with parents, carers and specialists and actively seek to engage with all members of the Sharneyford community in a positive and supportive manner.
It is our aim for all children to leave Sharneyford as independent learners with self-belief and respect for others. We aim to instil a lifelong love for learning and a strong grounding for future success.
