Aims and Values

THE AIMS OF THE SCHOOL

At Maryland School our main aim is to help each child achieve their full potential. To do this we aim to:
 Make the school a calm, safe, happy, stimulating and attractive place to be in.
 Encourage good learning habits so that children acquire knowledge and skills appropriate to their personal development.
 Provide a broad, creative and balanced multi-cultural curriculum based on British Values that will cater for and stimulate
children from all backgrounds and with differing needs.
 Provide cross-curricular activities and memorable experiences to develop our children’s social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and
cultural education.
 Foster resilience and independence in our children, so that they become ambitious and make a positive contribution to society.
 Encourage good personal relationships based upon courtesy, kindness, good manners and consideration, respect and understanding
for others.
 Build positive relationships with parents, carers and the community in order to achieve the best for our
children.
 Develop the children’s understanding of the world in which they live and of the interdependence of individual groups and nations.
 Use technology and e-learning to enhance teaching and learning.
 Provide quality services that extend beyond the school day to support working parents.
When children leave us they say that we have taught them:
 To have aspirations and ambition.
 To be proud of themselves and their achievements.
 To learn about the wider curriculum and to discover the world.
 To care for others in a disciplined, encouraging and calm environment
 To become confident, independent and responsible members of the community
 To enjoy learning and have fun everyday.
 To promote healthy life choices.
