Vision and Values
At Haydn our educational philosophy is a simple one and centres on achieving the best possible outcomes for all children so that;
Learners are safe, happy, confident, secure and able to engage with the wider community. They develop strong characteristics for learning: Resilience, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness, Readiness and are well prepared to live life in Modern Britain.
That all pupils at Haydn are extremely well prepared to become life- long learners and are able to achieve the highest possible social, emotional, physical and academic standards.
Learning is enjoyable, integrated and stimulating; education is delivered in a way that develops and challenges children and excites their imagination. In this way children enjoy not just learning different things, but learning in many ways; out of doors, through play, in small groups, through art, music and sport, from each other and from adults other than teachers.
To achieve the best outcomes for each child regardless of individual starting points and ensure that children feel a sense of achievement in all that they do.
To deliver an interesting, broad, creative and challenging curriculum.
To empower children to become independent, resilient learners and thinkers.
To develop enquiring minds, enterprising skills and embrace lifelong learning, inspiring all to hold a natural curiosity and love of learning.
To encourage pupils to develop self-discipline and high standards of work and behaviour. This includes encouraging pupils to act responsibly, display initiative, be considerate and respect themselves and others.
To celebrate social and cultural diversity so that everyone feels valued and respected.
To help children to develop a knowledge and understanding of issues affecting their health and well-being so that they can make informed choices for their future.
