Our Aims

The School Vision

Birchwood Grove is a creative and caring community, committed to preparing children for their future as local, national and global citizens, with a passion for lifelong learning. We aspire towards all children reaching their potential, developing resilient growth-mindsets and having opportunities to explore and pursue individual interests and skills within a positive, safe environment. 

Rights Respecting

The school aims are drawn from the following articles from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: -

The right to be the best you can be (Article 29)

The right to learn and go to school (Article 28)

The right to say what you think should happen and be listened to (Article 12)

.  The right to life and to be healthy (Article 6)

.  The right to relax and play (Article 31)

.  The right to be kept safe (Article 19)

The School Aims

  1. To reach our full potential in all aspects of school life within a stimulating and supportive learning environment.
  2. To promote the development of self–respect and self-discipline by encouraging independence and a sense of responsibility.
  3. To ensure everyone, regardless of gender, race, ability or cultural background, is valued and has the opportunity to be listened to.
  4. To keep ourselves healthy and safe in a happy and secure environment.
