The Opossum ethos is based on our core belief that all pupils deserve high quality education, which engages, inspires and challenges, to ensure that everyone meets their full potential. We strive to create safe and happy learning environments, which promote independence and high expectations of all. We are committed to providing opportunities, which promote open mindedness, empathy and celebration of the rich and diverse communities, which we serve, aiming to ensure that everyone is able to contribute positively to society. We are dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyle choices so that our pupils develop physically, emotionally and morally. We are determined that our pupils will be successful and will leave us as confident, highly educated members of the community.
We do this by:
- Raising achievement through quality first teaching, which enthuses and motivates; encouraging
aspiration to fulfil their potential.
- Ensuring pupil voice is at the heart of all we do to enable children to become confident, resilient
and reflective independent learners.
- Offering a broad and varied curriculum, which ensures all children can read, write and are
- Having an open and welcoming environment where everyone feels welcome and included.
