DALTON SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT
Dalton School is an inclusive school where all children are treated equally and are given equality of opportunity regardless of age, ability, gender or race.
Teaching and learning will take account of the differing needs of our pupils and work will be tailored to meet those individual needs.
Children will benefit from our new and exciting curriculum that is rich, broad and balanced. The curriculum will be presented in an interesting and imaginative way, providing opportunities for first-hand experience, practical work, investigation and learning through play. Teaching and learning will be enlivened by visits and visitors, including greater use of the local environment. Children will be taught the key learning skills which will help to develop them as lifelong learners. After school activities will be offered throughout the year to extend and enrich learning.
Teacher expectations of themselves and their pupils will be high and children will be encouraged to set high standards for themselves.
Success will be promoted and achievement rewarded.
Parents and the wider community will be seen as equal partners and will be welcomed into school.
Dalton School is a happy place where children feel confident, safe and secure, are keen to learn, care about each other and behave well.
The Head Teacher will drive effective systems for self evaluation to ensure promotion of high standards.
