At Sharp Lane, we are on a journey where we want everyone to ASPIRE to be the best they can be. When children leave school we want them to have confidence and BELIEVE that they can achieve anything they want through hard work and COMMITMENT. Using knowledge and skills they have learnt, we want all children to be independent, lifelong learners and have the confidence to explore and DISCOVER.
Underpinning our vision are our six core values, our characteristics of learning which will enable all children to; take responsibility, form relationships, take risks, have resilience, be resourceful and be reflective. These are collectively known as our 6Rs and these help us strive to bring learning to life with a combination of our curriculum, the experiences we offer and our drive to inspire all children.
We are proud to be an inclusive primary school, bringing together children from a range of economic, social and ethnic backgrounds; creating an exciting and diverse learning community where all children are treated as individuals with differing needs and strengths. Our aim is to extend and support all children and help them to achieve their full potential. We have high but realistic expectations and we want children to try their best, appreciate what they can do well and have a growth mindset for the things they can’t do yet.
The education we provide at Sharp Lane is based upon teamwork which is a joint venture, involving everyone – children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community. Through co-operation and support in this partnership, we can provide the best education for every child.
