The World is Ours

Watercliffe Meadow is a happy, caring place for learning.
Everyone has the chance to explore, discover and develop their unique qualities, skills, gifts and talents.
We feel good about who we are.
Together, we can help to make the world a better place.

This is our ‘mission statement’. Staff, children, parents and governors all worked together to create these simple statements that explain what we are about and what our vision and aims are for our learning community.

Throughout their curriculum journey at Watercliffe Meadow, our intent is to enable our children to achieve their potential so that they not only thrive in the next stage of their education beyond primary, but also we help them to find their place in the world and are be able to flourish within it. To do this, we know that we must provide a stable and caring environment where learning is valued, and where children (and adults) have access to a wide range of exciting learning opportunities that will help them develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes so that everyone can become successful and content in life.

During 2010 and 2011 we worked with Jane Reed (from the London Institute of Education), to devise a set of 10 ‘learning principles’ that highlight the learning behaviours we wanted to develop in all our children.

As they move through school, our aim is for all our children to become increasingly aware of their own strengths as learners and to work on those areas in which they are not so strong.
