Our Mission and Aims

 ‘Working together we can realise the potential in everyone’

We never underestimate the central importance of a quality education and set high expectations for all our pupils. We also wish for our children to enjoy their time with us and to develop the life- long skills they need to achieve individual success as well as to contribute positively to their community.

Our core aims:

To be a thriving school with a family ethos, where all will flourish with pride, belonging and contentment.

To give each child the skills and values that will enable them to be successful in the modern world.

To ensure that the highest standard of learning and teaching are central to everything we do.

Our Curriculum

At Loddon every child is offered a personalised learning journey through our Integrated Curriculum, encouraging enjoyment, independence, confidence, imagination and curiosity as well as the skills, knowledge and understanding needed for success.

We follow the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Framework as set out by the Department for Education. In addition we offer a localised integrated approach which seeks to link areas of knowledge together and encourage questioning skills and reflective learning in our pupils.

Children are actively engaged in interactive learning projects that offer excitement, challenge and discovery. Opportunities for pupils to take part in cross-curricular activities and offsite trips or residentials are central to our approach.
