School Aims, Values and Vision

In April 2016 we became the first school in the UK and only 3rd in wider Europe to achieve “Lighthouse Status” through Steven Covey’s “The Leader In Me” the children’s version of his highly acclaimed 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This encourages leadership at all levels.


As a result of the sustainability of previous lottery work and the 7 habits, our mission statement remains as ‘Opportunities for All – Developing Leaders One by One’.  This Motto was chosen by our pupils, staff and parents and is embedded in the ethos of our school. We recognise that learning must be built upon a climate of trust, respect and shared values and we have firmly embedded the 7 habits which have helped us to establish this.


Our Values


To help us achieve success everyday across – and beyond – the school community, we believe it is important to develop the values of being:


  • Safe
  • Healthy
  • Active
  • Nurturing
  • Achieving
  • Responsible
  • Respecting
  • Including


These values are developed through departmental assemblies and by us linking our values to learning across the curriculum and to our 7 habits:


  • Be proactive
  • Begin with the end in mind
  • Put first things first
  • Think win win
  • Seek first to understand then to be understood
  • Synergize
  • Sharpen the saw




Our Vision: what we want for our learners


Our vision is to develop a strong community of learners:


  • To be creative
  • To know and believe that they can achieve
  • To be successful
  • To feel happy and safe
  • To have good role models
  • To be challenged
  • To be curious and inquisitive
  • To have high aspirations
  • Empathy and understanding of others
  • To have opportunities
  • To be confident in their possible future pathways
  • To feel nurtured by us. Comfortable to share their feelings and worries. We have the chance then to make a difference.
  • Some of our pupils may experience poverty within our SIMD, we want them to achieve more/exceed expectations
  • Growth mind-set, being able to struggle through adversity/life chances/ deprivation and have the confidence to persevere
  • To be polite and kind
