Ethos, Aims & Values
To achieve a secure, caring and welcoming environment in which every member is treated as an individual, enjoying the opportunity to develop to their full potential. We wish everyone at Biscovey to be a successful learner, confident individual and responsible citizen (QCA - Big Picture).
By providing a stimulating, challenging but enjoyable environment, the School will encourage each child to develop a lively and enquiring mind, and an ability to question and debate rationally. We will also endeavour to develop the children’s appreciation of the achievement and aspiration of others, and an ability to take a responsible, active part in the School and wider community.
We will aspire to the five outcomes of the Every Child Matters agenda of Being Healthy, Staying Safe, Enjoy and Achieve, Making a Positive Contribution and to Achieve Economic Well-Being. Within a framework of positive behavioural standards and discipline, we will help the pupils to maintain good manners, tolerance and respect for others and a pride in their School and it’s environment.
