At Moredon Primary and Nursery School, we are committed to providing the very best education for your children. Our school logo represents our ideals and values as follows:
- The globe, as a balloon, represents the achievements and aspirations we hope to instil in our children as citizens of the world. It also represents the breadth we offer in our curriculum and the wide range of experiences we will give to enhance the children’s learning.
- The basket of the balloon represents the school. You are safe in the basket while being able to explore new ideas, concepts, and experiences. The balloon is tethered by the word ‘Moredon’, just as our school is tethered in the community. We want to celebrate Moredon as a community and develop learning in the community by making the school accessible.
- The flames represent the support your children receive in school. Imagine you are in a balloon: sometimes you will need a great deal of heat to make a journey, to go higher; sometimes you don’t need any heat at all and you cruise along at a speed suitable to your chosen journey; sometimes you really need a short burst to get you somewhere. The level of support every child needs is always available in school through the teaching, the differentiated curriculum, teaching assistant support, intervention programmes, and a high level of challenge. The support needed will be tailored to meet the individual needs of the children, just as the flames are used to continue the journey of the balloon.
- On the side of the balloon, there are three sacks. These sacks represent the three main elements for successful learning. The heart represents self-esteem - if you believe in yourself and value your own talents, you are likely to succeed. The tick represents the children’s willingness to learn. The question mark represents the knowledge, skills, and understanding we hope to develop in every child. As parents, children, and teachers work together, the children’s potential is released and the balloon continues higher on its journey.
You will also notice that we have a mission statement: “Your learning journey to new horizons”. We are continuously working to develop a curriculum that inspires and challenges the children and allows them to have a range of experiences, trips, and visits. The mission statement shows clearly our promise to children that we will make learning interesting and challenging, and it will make sense to them.
