Great Berry Vision and Mission Statement
Our vision is to create a stable, caring environment, where all of the children can excel and feel successful and secure.
We will give children opportunities to gain knowledge in all lessons; we encourage them to strive for their best. Not only do we want them to excel, but we want them to acknowledge right from wrong, and grow up to be rounded adults and to contribute importantly to society. We wish for them to acknowledge the beauty of creativity and to feel their skills and talents are fulfilled.
We wish for children and staff to feel safe and cared for, who in turn are proud of their school and that they will help it continue to be a caring place to learn and grow.
Every child, in their time at Great Berry, should feel accepted for who they are. We hope to offer the best skills, education and knowledge and the opportunities to feel proud of their achievements and move closer to their life goals.
We believe that our pupils can excel in their learning and take pride in every aspect of their life.
