Aims of the School

Our overall aim is to help your children feel happy and secure during their time at Birdwell. We can only do this if we work as a partnership with you, the parents.

  1. The school is seen as a learning community and that strong links are further developed in the wider community.
  2. All children fulfil their learning potential and achieve a high level of attainment through providing the opportunity for independence and creativity.
  3. The children leave Birdwell School with values of citizenship. They demonstrate care for each other, are well behaved and have a record of their achievement.
  4. Together we create a purposeful, enjoyable atmosphere in school.
  5. There are high expectations from all, parents, children, staff and the community so that children can pursue their ambition.

  1. We are here to learn
