School Aims, Goals and Vision

Inspire. Nurture. Thrive.

Valuing and developing the potential in everyone

Our school community needs to have a common understanding of what we are aiming for and what outcomes we want for pupils. This is our vision and should be something we refer back to on a daily basis in order to guide our decisions. We use it to decide which direction to go in, it is like our compass.     

The commitment of the staff and outstanding team working ethos at Culverhill School will ensure that the vision is implemented on a daily basis.
