Vision and Values
To do all I can,
Reach higher than I dreamed,
To be the best I can be.
At Napier we believe that every child can succeed. We will ensure that our children will develop high aspirations, self-belief, respect, compassion, and an understanding of their world and their community. We believe that growing competence and mastery of reading, writing and mathematics are the foundations that allow children and young people to build a happy, self-determined and fulfilled life.
At Napier we know we can make a difference to lives of children. We believe that education is a fundamental human right and we are proud to serve these children and their community. We are committed to promoting the long term collective wellbeing of all the children entrusted to our care.
High expectations build high aspiration so we must have the highest expectations which are exemplified by our six core values:
At Napier we respect all learners and individuals by valuing their rights and property.
At Napier we always give our very best and and try our hardest to achieve. No matter how big the challenge, we always work hard to find a way to succeed.
At Napier we will have every opportunity to be successful at the highest level and challenge ourselves to meet challenging goals on our journey to fulfilling our potential.
Children at Napier develop the confidence to find the courage to develop the resilience to attempt challenging targets and to never give up!
Napier is a welcoming and caring school. We believe in the importance of friendship and strive for every member of the school community to be happy and feel loved. The work we produce is as strong and as powerful as our friendship.
At Napier we believe in being fair and treat everyone they way they deserve to be treated. We understand, embrace and celebrate the differences in our community and are proud of the diversity within our school family.
“Shaping Lives; Building Futures”
We are committed to providing excellent teaching and learning in an inclusive environment that enables children to be enquiring learners who reach their full potential both socially and academically. We expect the highest standards and will always strive to improve our previous best.
The classroom focus is upon challenge, engagement and achievement. Learning is celebrated in all of its forms for we believe that when children recognise and achieve their full potential, they can make their best contribution to society. We also place value upon our partnerships between children, staff, parents, governors and the wider community whom we serve.
"My ambition for ALL of our children is that they can become the best that they can be - to fulfil their potential and achieve all of their aspirations. I want Napier to be a school where every child comes to school 'buzzing' with excitement and that they still retain that level of excitement when they leave school following a day full of learning and progress"
