The HERO (Holistic, Effective, Resilient, Outstanding) Strategy:
We want to see the school support our children and help them to thrive and become the
heroes of the future. To facilitate this, the governing body are committed to supporting the
school to deliver Holistic, Effective, Resilient and Outstanding education and development,

Holistic: To design and deliver an ambitious broad and balanced curriculum for all

writing, maths, humanities, arts, PSHE, science, SMSC, ICT and sports. These will be actively integrated into
and delivered through a planned and relevant curriculum.


Effective: To ensure the effective and sustainable deployment of all resources for both the
children of today and tomorrow.
Our finances, buildings and grounds, policies and practices are driven by the needs of our school community
and children, and will be optimised to ensure that pupils and all stakeholders receive the best experience whilst
ensuring resources are well managed for future generations.

Resilient: To actively promote the personal development, resilience and emotional well-
being of all people at the school.

parents to be able to respond to difficulties in a positive and proactive manner, raise aspirations and
encourage students to be given time to think, reason and become more empowered in the learning process.


Outstanding: To ensure our organisational culture and people enable pupils to flourish and
learn without limits.

(irrespective of current/prior attainment, SEND barriers, disadvantages) and staff, high quality levels of
teaching, effective safeguarding strong attendance, positive behaviour and attitudes, and healthy
