Values and Aims

We aim for all pupils at Brandesburton Primary School to experience a high quality education, which will enable them to succeed and, develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes required to lead a fulfilling life now, 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 – school, parents and children.

We are committed to this partnership and summarise this is a simple statement:

Together We Believe, Together We Achieve

The heart of our school revolves around the independence and interdependence of each individual. We believe that this philosophy is equally important and applicable to all our pupils regardless of race, religion, gender or disability.

We aim to create a happy, caring and co-operative school community that celebrates learning in all its forms. Staff, governors,

parents and our local community work together to nurture good citizens with strong moral values, attitudes, beliefs and who have a lifelong desire to learn.
