Ethos, Aims & Values



Our Toolkit for Learning, Love and Laughter are our foundation and clearly demonstrate the ethos of the school. We have used the Olympic Values as a vision for learning behaviour and as characteristics of good learners;

  • Determination
  • Equality
  • Respect
  • Excellence
  • Inspiration
  • Courage 
  • Friendship
These were developed over a series of assemblies with the children discussing how and why these characteristic make good learners and how they can demonstrate them in all learning opportunities.



All activities within the school should have as their goal the fulfillment of one or more elements of the toolkit. these values are explicitly focused on throughout the year at every opportunity and celebrated as part of our weekly celebration assembly. Our Personal Development overview demonstrates how this is planned over the year.

We also have an expectation that children will live by our School Promises which are;

  • Look after and respect all things
  • Be gentle
  • Be kind and helpful
  • Work hard
  • Be polite and listen
  • Be honest
