Ethos, Values & Vision
At Mill Ford School we provide a happy, positive and secure working environment in which every member of our learning community is valued. We celebrate the strengths and talents of our pupils and set challenging targets to ensure every individual achieves their potential.
|Pupils are provided with a sense of achievement, helping them to grow in confidence and empowering them to adopt a ‘have a go’/’I Can’ attitude. Pupils are also provided with the opportunity to build friendships, feel valued, respected, and accepted for who they are.|
|Our Vision is to provide high quality education, which is personalized and achievement driven to ensure pupils are supported to meet their full potential. Our pupils are encouraged to make choices and be as independent as possible so that they are happy, positive citizens, who achieve beyond that which society expects of them. It is our vision for our pupils that they develop as fully as possible their self-help, independence, communication and social skills.|
The dedication and commitment of our staff is crucial to the quality of our work and we will do all we can to encourage, support, challenge and train them for the important work they do. We ensure pupils, staff, parents/carers, governors and friends of the school feel valued so that we remain a great place to be.
