VISION AND VALUES
We have developed this visual representation of our school vision and values to ensure it is shared and understood by our community. Through having our school vision and values represented in a visual way, we ensure it is a living and breathing component of our school.
The NZ Curriculum introduces its vision as what we want for our young people. It is a statement of what it will look like today and in the future. It has several key points but is most often represented by: “For young people to be confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners."
At Appleby School we recognise the vision the NZ Curriculum espouses and have developed our own vision statement:
Our students' needs, interests and aspirations are at the centre of everything we do.
Our vision is more of a description of what is always foremost in our minds as we carry out our operations. Essentially it means we are child-centred. Our policy, procedure and programmes reflect that we cater for the individual needs of students who attend our school, recognising that children have different backgrounds, starting points, interests and aspirations.
