Ethos & Values

We acknowledge the importance of a positive relationship between home and school in order to provide the very best educational development for all the children in our care. We therefore encourage parents to take an active role in the life of the school and particularly in supporting the educational development of the children.

We appreciate working in partnership with parents as we recognise that parental support is vital in promoting children's achievements. We organise formal Parent-Teacher consultations over the academic year. The first in October has a focus on how well the children have settled into the new year, and the second in February will concentrate on mid-year learning and recent assessments. This should provide clear pointers for parents to help with learning for the remainder of the year.

An annual report for every pupil is given to parents in July and parents may request a meeting to discuss this with the class teacher if required.

We send details to each family at the beginning of the term to inform you what your child will be learning and how you could support them. We also publish our full curriculum here on our website.

Once you are a member of the school community you will be invited to join Class Dojo. An encrypted and private site; this gives you access to images of your child's work, homework information and is an opportunity to communicate directly with your class teacher.

We are pleased to meet with parents at other times as appropriate - parents should contact the school office to make an appointment to meet with their child's class teacher. Teachers are also on the playground at the beginning and the end of every school day and are pleased to meet with parents on an informal basis.

Our school has clear values for the children to live up to. These are shared through assemblies as well as day-to-day in our conversations, learning and policies. Our children understand that these values are important to our community and help to ensure our school remains a vibrant and happy place to learn.

Our values are shared through our vision;

The Joy of Creating Endless Possibilities, through;


The Joy of creating endless possibilities through KINDNESS, INTEGRITY, COMPASSION, ENDEAVOUR.

Staff and children show these values in the way they speak and interact with each other.


While we may not be everybody’s friend, we are friendly to everyone. We treat everyone with care.  We are generous with our words and our time. We don’t say things about other people that are not true or join in with gossip. We treat others as we would like to be treated. We think about how our actions might impact on other people.


We do the right thing, even when no one is looking. We are respectful of others and their differences. We show our pride in our community by acting correctly. We follow the rules and expectations of the class and school. We are a good role model to others.

We are honest, speaking with care so that we do not spread unkind rumours or say things which may hurt other people’s feelings.

We do not take things that are not ours to take.


We try to understand how other people might be feeling. We know that people and animals have feelings and to try not to do things which might hurt them or their feelings.

We make time to find out about other people, in school, in other schools and around the world. 

We learn about our special planet and how to protect it and everything on it by making better choices.


We try really hard in order to achieve our goals.

We make an effort and aim high. We try hard, even when things are difficult.

We do not give up easily, even if things are difficult. We persevere and keep going.
