At Chandlers Ridge, children are at the heart of everything we do. We strive to create an inclusive environment where we foster a love of learning and a passion to aim high to prepare children for their next steps in life. To create a community where children, parents and staff share common aims and values, through enjoyment, participation and pride in our school. To foster an approach in which children and staff are valued, where they can achieve recognition and success and where there is concern to meet their various needs. To provide our children with a broad and balanced education programme, with experience of the highest quality and to teach them to acquire and apply skills and knowledge. To help the children to develop personal and social skills and to increase their moral and spiritual awareness. To provide a caring environment which encourages courtesy, responsibility and consideration for the needs of other and the development of sound relationships between school, families and the community. To help children and staff fulfil their own potential by setting high expectations and to build self confidence, motivation and commitment, by recognising achievement in all of its forms. Our Ethos Children are provided with a wide curriculum that aims to develop every child’s full potential and to achieve the highest possible standards. All children are provided with challenge in different subjects. Within EYFS children are challenged within their play activities. In the rest of the school, some of the challenge is open ended activities and other challenges are for children to investigate and find out more. The school aims to develop an ethos that includes social and moral behaviour, as well as academic achievement. We also teach British values throughout the school as well in some assemblies. Basic skills are given high priority and the curriculum is designed to be flexible to fit the needs of individuals. We aim to create a happy and hard working environment within our whole school.
