Mission Statement: We seek to provide a happy and caring learning environment for each child. We hope that by helping them fulfil their potential, celebrating their achievements, respecting their differences and encouraging mutual respect for others, we will foster self-esteem and provide a sound foundation for their future life.
To achieve this, our aims are:
to encourage children to be confident, independent and responsible learners through the development of a curriculum which is adapted to suit the needs and abilities of all our pupils;
to help develop in our pupils, lively enquiring minds and an ability to apply themselves to the development of mental tasks and physical skills;
to help our pupils understand the world in which we live and to appreciate human achievements and aspirations;
to develop respect for religious and moral values, tolerance of other religions, races and ways of life;
to work in a partnership with parents and the wider community;
to encourage our children to acquire knowledge and skills in preparation for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
The staff, pupils, parents and governors are full committed to the aims of the school and have a strong sense of loyalty to the school. Parents and staff work well together in partnership in the children’s education. Parents are welcome in the school and are given clear information about their children’s progress, the school’s curriculum and the day-to-day organisation of the school. Parents’ views are taken into account in the School Development Plan and parents have access to the plan’s implementation.
“Sending my two children to Cygnet House is, without doubt, one of the best decisions I have made as a parent. Cygnet House offers low class sizes, quality teaching in a true family atmosphere where the children are seen as individuals. Their days are filled with learning, music, dance, acting and swimming and they consistently describe their school as ‘brilliant’ and ‘fun’, a place where they look forward to going!”
“Cygnet House is like another home for me. I know everyone in the school; it’s like a big family. I feel happy when I go to school because we’re all treated the same. I love this school and I will miss it when I move into Year 8.”
