School Values and Ethos



Our school curriculum is underpinned by the values that we hold dear at our school. The curriculum is the means by which the school achieves its objective of educating children in the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need in order to lead fulfilling lives.


These are the main values of our school, upon which we have based our curriculum:


  • We value the way in which all children are unique and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child and for people of all cultures. We value the spiritual and moral development of each person, as well as their intellectual and physical growth.
  • We value the importance of each person in our community. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community.
  • We value the rights enjoyed by each person in our society. We respect each child in our school for who they are and we treat them with fairness and honesty. We aim to enable each person to be successful and we provide equal opportunities for all the children in our school.
  • We value our environment and we aim, through the curriculum, to teach respect for the world and how we should care for it for future generations, as well as our own.

We believe that primary education should:


  • Bring out the best in every child
  • Interest children in the world around them and give them a wide range of experiences
  • Nurture a sense of wonder and feed the children’s curiosity and encourage them to develop enquiring minds
  • Equip children with tools for learning and help each child to develop their potential
  • Enable each child to develop their understanding of self and the world around them
  • Develop social and communication skills and provide a foundation for lifelong learning
  • Help children understand the importance of truth and fairness, so that they grow up committed to equal opportunities for all
  • Promote a positive attitude towards learning, so that children enjoy coming to school and acquire a solid basis for lifelong learning
  • Enable children to have respect for themselves and high self-esteem and to be able to live and work co-operatively with others
