Aims and Values

Our Mission statement:

Our vision is for Edith Neville Primary School to be an outstanding centre of learning for local families, helping children to become all they are capable of becoming, through the active, co-ordinated support of staff, parents, the local authority, other agencies and the local community.  



We aim to:

  • Embed lifelong learning 
  • Nurture wellbeing
  • Encourage aspiration
  • Develop creative thinking
  • Build confidence and resilience
  • Instil social and moral values of fairness, kindness, honesty and courage
  • Foster respect and appreciation of our similarities and differences



The ethos that supports these aims is as:


A learning school - Reviewing, assessing  and drawing lessons from practice and research; working with families to support their children's learning; listening to each other; tailoring our approach according to the needs of individual children; being curious and challenging to each other; drawing on the cultural offer of our location. 


An inclusive school - Recognising and encouraging individuality; working to strengths and weaknesses; recognising difference; setting examples of kindness; social concern and equality; engaging with our community; respecting different cultures and perspectives. 


A nurturing school - Focusing on physical, mental and emotional well-being alongside academic attainment; looking out for each other; working as a team at every level; behaving with empathy and honesty, involving families, community and neighbours in learning together. 


A forward looking school - Setting high standards; pursuing and achieving goals; confidence building; instilling aspiration; preparing children for ongoing education and life chances, working for social integration.
