Ethos and Values
The driving force behind all that happens at Abel Smith is the shared aim of every child enjoying access to a stimulating and engaging education, developing both academically and socially and leaving us as life long, independent learners.
Abel Smith has a culture of high aspiration and expectation for each and every child, which enables our children to acquire knowledge, understanding and develop learning throughout the school. The impact of this is that almost all groups of children make outstanding progress. We are very proud of the excellent results our children achieve which are significantly above the national average in both Key Stage 1 and 2. Attainment in our EYFS is also above national average.
Courage. Care. Commitment
As a school community we believe:
- Children leave Abel Smith as independent, lifelong learners and prepared for modern life in Britain.
- Children will develop through personalised learning from our enriched and challenging curriculum.
- Children have a meaningful understanding of the global community in which they live and learn.
- Children's learning is developed through the ever changing world of Information and Communication Technology.
This school improvement plan assist the school community to realise this vision.
