Our main aims at NPS are:
- To create a friendly, caring community where every individual is valued.
- To encourage pupils to reach their full potential in all aspects of life.
- To work in partnership with parents, nurturing and leading pupils towards a lifelong love of learning.
A school charter produced by children and staff working together ensures that all members of the NPS community uphold the same values.
Our charter at NPS:
We believe that:
- everyone in our School should feel happy and safe
- everyone in our School has a right to learn
- everyone in our School is important
- everyone in our School can succeed
- everyone in our School is a problem solver
NPS is a forward looking school which consequently never stands still. New resources, methods of teaching, learning opportunities, an ever increasing range of visits and activities are ways that NPS continues to provide the very best in primary education.
