Aims and Ethos

Aims & Ethos

  • At Branwood we place great emphasis on a broad and inclusive education, in a nurturing and supportive environment, whilst striving for excellence in all that we do.
  • In celebrating each child for the unique qualities they bring to our community, we encourage them to explore and develop their interests, gain confidence in themselves and in their abilities, and seize the rich opportunities life offers.
  • We seek to prepare all our children for a life of learning and fulfilment, and for the fast-changing world of the 21st century as responsible, active, and compassionate global citizens.
  • In all that they do, we encourage our children to ‘Educate, Develop, Explore’, and to be the best that they can be.
  • The school’s motto, which helps us to achieve our aims, is SCORE:
  • Scholarship – to foster a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, independence of thought, and effective learning habits.
  • Character – to develop resilience and confidence, and to inculcate integrity and to foster a vibrant school community, built on trust and respect, and instil a sense of social responsibility.
  • Opportunity – to provide a rich and stimulating school experience, where our pupils can explore and develop their interests, gifts and talents, and discover new ones.
  • Resilience – where all are valued as individuals; one which provides the opportunity for participation in a rich and diverse co-curricular programme and which is underpinned by a culture of respect for ourselves and others. 
  • Environment – to provide a safe, stimulating and supportive school environment, where each pupil can feel inspired, challenged and valued.
  • At Branwood we dream our goal, see our goal, work together towards our goal and SCORE our goal.
