Our School Vision, Ethos and Values

Southbourne Junior School Vision

To nurture happy, independent, aspirational learners through igniting passion and curiosity by adapting to our children's world and culture and looking to the future. We will create an environment which allows children to take risks with skill centred learning and enrichment without limits.

Our Ethos

We believe our school will nurture all individuals in their journey to achieve their full and unique potential. Our school community provides an understanding culture where, in striving for high achievement, children have a voice and work in partnership with adults; creating a collaborative team where everyone is valued.

We aim to provide a happy, safe and exciting learning environment that encourages children to take risks, make mistakes and develop independent lifelong learners.

Children learn best when they are fully and actively engaged in the learning process, ensuring high quality learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom.

As a school, we strive for excellence, putting children and their learning at the heart of all we do so we help to create well-rounded individuals.
