Aims and Ethos

We seek to ensure that all children in our school develop their academic, social and personal potential to the full and grow into competent, tolerant adults who can work together co-operatively, manage their own lives and play their full part as responsible citizens and life-long learners.

St Weonards is a ‘values’ based school. We follow a programme through which, children and adults are inspired to choose their own positive personal, social, moral, cultural and spiritual values and to be aware of ways for developing and deepening them as members of the global as well as their local community.

Equality Objectives

  • To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
    through all appropriate curricular opportunities, with
    particular reference to issues of equality and diversity
  • To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality
    through direct teaching across the curriculum
  • To narrow the gap between non-disadvantaged and
    disadvantaged pupils
  • To reduce the incidence of hostile attitudes and behaviour
    towards, and between, disabled and non-disabled pupils.
  • To ensure all children have a positive attitude
  • To promote cultural development and understanding through a
    rich range of experiences both in and beyond the school
  • To reduce the incidence of prejudice-related bullying in
    relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality
    Act 2010.

We aim for every child to be given the opportunity to develop their own full potential with attention on the basics of literacy, numeracy and scientific understanding, without which the wider curriculum cannot be developed.
