Values and Vision
Robert Napier School wants children to succeed in every aspect of their lives. The motto is: ‘excellence in all we do’. Children should present themselves in a well-mannered way and show respect for others around them. Being a member of the local community is extremely important and valued by the school.
“The headteacher’s resolute leadership has already brought about a number of substantial changes and has laid a firm foundation for continuing improvements. Pupils’ progress in English is strong and sustained because teaching in this subject is effective. School leaders have taken the right steps to improve teaching. As a result, attainment in the majority of subjects improved in 2016. Pupils now behave much better than in the past and the positive climate for learning is helping them to make more rapid progress. The school is a safe and caring environment and pupils’ personal development and welfare is good. Middle leaders are increasingly effective because they hold their teams to account.”
