Our Core Values


Respect – We respect each other as individuals and our school environment.


Excellence – We always try our very best!


Friendship – Our friendship school supports and cares for everybody.


Determination – We never give up even when things are difficult.


Courage – We show strength and are not afraid to get things wrong.


Equality – We give everybody the same opportunity to succeed.


Inspiration – We celebrate everybody’s successes and learn from each other.



All members of our school community are expected to model our core values on a daily basis. Children can assess their own ability to recognise their own life skills in their day to day learning. We believe our core values support the well-being of our children and also their capacity to live in a modern Britain.
