- To work within the existing environment where good order and conduct are promoted through high levels of self discipline and positive reinforcement.
- To ensure that the school exhibits the dynamism to anticipate and respond to a rapidly changing world, thereby equipping children with the skills, self confidence and adaptability to manage their own lives and be contributors to society.
- To help all members of the school to reflect on performance and achievement, to evaluate that achievement with a view to improving upon it, and to ensure that this is an on-going activity embodied both in the learning process and the organisation of the school.
- To promote the partnership between school and the community it serves through mutual acknowledgement of shared values, interests and expectations, and by drawing on the skills and understanding of that community.
