The Mission Statement, wanting you ‘to learn, lead and to make a difference’, is supported by a series of Aims. We hope to make the Mission Statement a reality by:
1. nurturing a community of learners – adults and children – who are ambitious about what they might achieve in and out of the classroom
You might notice that this aim talks about learning outside of the classroom as well as learning inside of the classroom…
[For what it’s worth, I would stake a claim that children learn more outside a classroom at school, than in one…]
2. providing relevant opportunities for pupils to expand their horizons academically, aesthetically, athletically, creatively, emotionally, socially and spiritually
[Don’t worry, I did break that down in the assembly!]
3. establishing an environment at Freemen’s where everyone involved in the community is respected, trusted and supported
I want the community at Freemen’s to be a tolerant community. We won’t always agree; we won’t always share the same preferences; we won’t always believe in the same things. But I want us to respect difference not mock it and to trust and support each other.
