Our Purpose & Values

Our purpose, ’engaging children and young people in creative and enjoyable learning that’s of functional value to them now and in their future lives’ drives all that we do.

Our three values, InclusivenessIndependenceEnjoyment, are fundamental in keeping our purpose alive and real.  We expect all those involved with Humberston Park School to live these values in School and out in the communities we serve.

At Humberston Park School we enable each pupil to take an enjoyable, active and positive role in their social surroundings, and develop their capacity for living as independently as they can: autonomy for some is their aspiration.

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy is simple.  We are genuinely unique in our approach: our transdisciplinary approach means that the co-design of intent and delivery of health, care and education and co-developing strategies, essential for addressing complex problems, allows for trustful relationships to build so that solutions developed by the teams of staff have ownership by all those involved in a pupil’s learning journey, enhancing intense collaboration, and looking at new ways of doing things differently and better.  The outcomes and impacts for each pupil are therefore truly real, valuable and tangible, benefitting their lives long-term.

I am proud to be the Headteacher of such an amazing School, where the talented staff teams consistently promote social fairness with absolute focus on the quality of each learner’s experiences.  At the end of the day, it is their life, their future and their journey.
