Vision Statement

We will provide the very best education for all members of our school family by nurturing well-being, recognising all learners as individuals and having high expectations throughout our curriculum.  

The family of Durand aims to:

  • Encourage and equip our learners with the knowledge, skills and experience to thrive as Welsh citizens in an ever-changing world. 
  • Ensure our learners have developed the appropriate skills to be literate, numerate and digitally competent, as well as being able to contribute in the language of Welsh and show an appreciation of international languages. 
  • Develop healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society. 
  • Create a learning environment that will develop ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives. 
  • Encourage our learners to be enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work. 
  • Develop ethical, informed citizens of Wales ready to take their place within the wider world. 
  • Promote an ethos where all pupils and staff feel happy and confident to further develop their learning. 
  • Encourage everyone to respect individuality and difference in others and to respect and care for the environment in which they live. 
  • Work in partnership with parents, carers, governors and other professionals to develop and sustain positive relationships, both within school and as part of the wider community, ensuring that everyone feels welcome and a valued member of our Durand School Family.
