Vision & Values

Becoming independent, resilient and curious problem solvers and learners


At Poplar Farm School we offer an enriched and varied curriculum which enables all pupils to reach their potential and become active, valuable and positive members of society.

We believe that pupils should have high quality knowledge, skills and understanding across a range of core subject areas as set out in the National Curriculum. We believe that pupils should develop life skills so that they can make a valuable contribution as global citizens in a 21st century Britain

The vision and values of Poplar Farm School underpins C.I.T.’s vision for outstanding life-long learning.

The purpose of Poplar Farm School is to put learners at the centre of everything that we do. This is achieved by working in partnership with all those involved across the local community and the Trust.

In summary, the unique values of Poplar Farm School are:

  • An enriched curriculum which will develop a love of life-long learning.
  • Access to outstanding facilities and staff who will deliver an engaging, educationally relevant, and inspirational school day.
  • Visits to a wide range of outdoor settings such as our Forest School to learn in an outdoor setting.
