School Aims

Birch Hill is an inclusive school. We believe that all children should have access to an appropriate education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We aim to bring about a sense of community and belonging for pupils, parents and staff.

Our school will promote:
- the highest standard of achievement by all pupils, regardless of ability, ethnic origin or gender;

- pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, preparing them for life as effective citizens of the future;

- a working partnership with the family, providing regular opportunities for the reporting of pupils' progress and attainment.

In order to achieve these aims, we will provide a curriculum which:

- is broad, balanced and which develops pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding through learning programmes and experiences appropriate to their ages and abilities;

- offers challenge, leading to the highest standards of personal achievement, taking account of ability, aptitude and special needs;

- promotes the importance of healthy living, emphasising the value of personal relationships based on mutual respect and develops an understanding of the rights of others;

- prepares the pupils for the responsibilities and opportunities that arise throughout life in a multicultural and technological society;

- provides children under the age of five with a range of educational experiences, including planned talk and play, develops their early knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes to provide a sound basis for later education and enables them to make an effective transition from home to school;

- develops constructive attitudes and a capacity for enjoyment through spiritual and aesthetic appreciation, and fosters respect for the environment.
