Vision Statement

Our vision statement of Sifton School is of a school focused on 21st Century literacies, grounded in basic literacy skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing in English, and extending to use of technology for teaching and learning literacy.

Our vision is supported and sustained by two programmes: Balanced Literacy and 6+1 Writing Traits; two support programmes: Reading Recovery and ELL small group instruction; and by collaborative work of teachers around best practices.
