We have been working on a concept relating to our motto "We all grow from here."
With a play on the word GROW we have identified four key areas we want to bring to the heart of everything we do and what Wanborough Primary School will aspire to improve and achieve further upon.
We are looking to introduce GROW across all elements of Wanborough Primary School with children, staff, governors and parents all having their part to play to keep the school improving in provision and outcomes.
Below is the Parents' charter which I hope you read and reflect upon. We are very fortunate to have the parental support we have and this summary hopefully encapsulates a lot of the good things already within our school culture.
As we move into 2016/17 you will see and hopefully hear about GROW, our intention is to add little more purpose and context than perhaps our motto, aims and values had previously and a clearer ambition on what we need to do to become even better as an organisation.
To demonstrate a clear set of expectations and behaviours our school aspires to.
To remind all stakeholders of their roles and responsibilities in maximising the schoo's potential.
To become embedded in our school culture.
