At Gossops Green Primary School, we believe that every child has the right to succeed, to meet their full potential and to understand that high aspiration and dreams are rightfully theirs to own and pursue, whatever their starting point in life might be.
How We Achieve Our Vision
Our extensive experience shows us that emotionally strong children will go on to achieve academically and this is why, alongside delivering our excellent, ambitious curriculum, we place great emphasis on Wellbeing and Nurture at Gossops Green.
We know, however, that life does not always make success as straightforward a path for some children, as it might be for others.
In reality, most of us will find that we need a little extra support at some point in our lives.
Children experience a whole range of events in their young lives which have the potential to affect them emotionally, physically and mentally: loss, bereavement, family breakdown, friendship issues, financial hardship, medical conditions, and academic struggles, are all areas that we know can impact on a child’s wellbeing and ability to cope with learning.
In recognising this, we have made it our mission at Gossops Green to identify any barriers – which could prevent children from meeting their potential – and to find ways to reduce and overcome these barriers so that every child has an equal, fair chance to be successful, happy and fulfilled.
At Gossops Green, we refer to this as ‘delivering equity’.
Our high ambition lies in our unwavering commitment to creating an inclusive environment where all children can succeed.
We ensure, at Gossops Green, that our children are nurtured, feel safe, cherished and equipped with the emotional tools to cope – in an often-imperfect world – so that they can focus 100% on their academic learning and fully meet the unique potential each child possesses.
