We are committed to the development of each individual child’s abilities so that they may come to experience life as worthwhile. We respect the dignity of each human being and acknowledge their value as an individual whatever their needs or their ability to contribute to society. We support the continuous development of knowledge, understanding and skills for all our children.
We believe that every child is an individual with the right to enjoy a normal pattern of life within the community appropriate to his or her age.
We advocate respect, dignity, freedom of choice and privacy for each child and believe in the principle of putting the child at the centre of all we do.
We respect and acknowledge the role of parents and carers and the challenges they face in nurturing the potential of the child or young person in their care and aim to support them in this.
