Our Aims

What are the school's aims?

Our aims at Bledlow Ridge School are threefold:

  • To enable every child to reach his or her potential physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially;
  • To ensure that each child feels included, valued and secure, and is able to recognise  and appreciate his/her own worth and the worth of others;
  • To encourage the children to become self motivated and confident, and to acquire the skills and attitudes necessary for them to become independent, life-long learners.

In order to achieve these aims we will:

  • Provide a stimulating learning environment, which combined with effective teaching, enables  pupils to achieve their  potential in all areas of the curriculum;
  • Deliver a broad, balanced, relevant and accessible curriculum in line with the demands of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum; and offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities;
  • Encourage pupils to become resilient, resourceful, reflective and reciprocal learners;
  • Value and nurture the unique contribution each pupil makes to the school community;
  • Recognise individual talent and celebrate effort as well as achievement;
  • Encourage pupils to take responsibility, be caring and show initiative;
  • Provide for pupils’ physical and emotional well being in a safe, secure and healthy environment;
  • Liaise closely and effectively with all stakeholders;
  • Maintain and promote a positive partnership between pupils, parents and the school, ensuring good lines of communication;
  • Ensure effective ongoing professional development of all staff;
  • Encourage the involvement of the wider community to enrich the life of the school.
