Values and Aims

Our Vision

We aim for all pupils at Brandesburton Primary School to experience a high quality education and develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitude required to lead a fulfilling life in our local and global communities, today and in the future.  Children’s access to these skills is an entitlement which requires the active and mutual partnership of our whole school community.  We are committed to this partnership and summarise this is a simple statement:  Together We Believe, Together We Achieve

We aim to create a happy, caring and co-operative school community that celebrates learning in all its forms. Staff, governors and parents work together to nurture good citizens with strong moral values, attitudes and beliefs.  We recognise and celebrate individuality and value everyone. We promote an inclusive school with equality of opportunity for all regardless of race, religion, gender or disability.

Our core school values:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Perseverance

To achieve our vision we aim to:

  • have a strong commitment to every child
  • promote learning as an exciting, independent, co-operative and lifelong activity within and beyond the school day
  • provide a curriculum that motivates, inspires and meets the need of all pupils
  • help pupils develop lively, enquiring, imaginative and creative minds with the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks
  • encourage students to achieve their potential academically, physically, artistically, creatively and emotionally
  • provide excellent teaching in a dynamic and supportive learning environment that enables everyone to aspire, achieve and enjoy
  • maintain a school ethos and climate of care and commitment to one another, where individuals work as a team and feel valued and safe
  • develop a culture where we take appropriate risks
  • encourage pupils to appreciate and celebrate spiritual, moral and cultural diversity
  • promote good citizenship with the values of responsibility, commitment, co-operation and respect at the core
