Aims and Values
Valley Gardens Middle School aims to discover and develop fully the potential of each pupil (i.e. socially, academically, practically and aesthetically) by:
*Making learning a pleasurable experience.
*Providing opportunities for the formation of secure relationships with peers and adults.
*Encouraging an enquiring, investigative and analytical approach to schoolwork and the wider world.
*Providing opportunity for the pupil to develop self reliance, independence, co-operation and tolerance as appropriate.
*Developing a responsible attitude to people and property within the school and in the wider world.
During the middle years we aim to provide each pupil with a variety of personally rewarding and exploratory experiences. Pupils therefore receive a broad balanced education in as wide a range of subjects as possibe. This is also the time when we try to reinforce and extend basic skills.
