Town Farm's values 'Respect, Achieve, Aspire' and mission of 'Making a difference, achieving excellence' are at the heart of everything we do in school. We aim to provide a caring, stable, intellectually creative and stimulating environment where all children can develop to their full and individual potential. We are committed to equality of opportunity and serve the local community by welcoming children from all backgrounds and faiths. We value and respect the diversity of our community and aim to set all children on life’s path through thoughtfulness and understanding to one another and respect for one another’s differences.
All staff are passionate about ensuring that your child's time at school is happy, productive and successful so that they can move confidently onto the next stage of their education and ultimately make a positive contribution to society as adults. We are incredibly proud of our approach to raising achievement in all aspects of the curriculum, through developing self-confidence, motivation, self-reliance, creativity and co-operation in all we do. We are confident that all our children will achieve their full potential with us and will leave well prepared for the next stage of their education and beyond.
