School Vision Statement
Our School Story
Our vision is to offer a well-rounded education to our children, and to reinforce our core values.
Aspiration – we want Palace Wood children to drive their own learning, have high aspiration and ambition for their future and leave us as lifelong learners equipped with knowledge and skills that will enable them to succeed in life.
Critical thinking – we want Palace Wood children to be able to raise their own questions by providing them with engaging, real life experiences in the lesson that we teach. We will give our children ample opportunity to reason ad problem solve, think logically and test out their theories and ideas.
Creativity – we want Palace Wood children to be empowered to express themselves in their own way. To appreciate art, music and drama and generate their own unique ideas through thinking from different perspectives.
Communication – we want Palace Wood children to be able to discuss, collaborate and articulate their thoughts clearly. To be able to challenge others’ ways of thinking whilst respecting the opinions and beliefs of each other.
Independence – we want Palace Wood children to have a growth mindset that encourages self-belief and knowledge of how to learn.
Community – we want Palace Wood children to feel proud of where they live and have a sense of unity within our local community.
