Priory Junior School Ethos and Values

We are committed to:

  • Promoting excellence and high standards in all forms of educational achievements and activity, including physical activity.
  • Educating and challenging each child to fulfil his/her maximum potential.
  • Developing a curriculum that is relevant to children’s future lives within a community.
  • Providing a stimulating and enjoyable approach to teaching and learning that encourages learning throughout life.
  • Encouraging each individual by offering a welcoming, supportive and disciplined environment sustained by active pastoral care and guidance.
  • Instilling self respect and respect for others, tolerance of other ways of living and understanding of the world, thus encouraging a regard for moral values on which children can base their own behaviour e.g. honesty and sincerity.
  • Developing strong relationships between home, school and the community and encouraging an appreciation and concern for the environment, especially the local area around the school.
  • Recognising the uniqueness and worth of each child and creating equal opportunities for all.
  • Striving continuously to develop and improve our work so that we can better meet the needs of those whom we serve – children, parents and the wider community.
  • Creating an environment that fosters and encourages professional development.
