Our Ethos and Values
Promote Christian Practices, Aspire to Excellence, Realise Potential, Foster Creativity
We try to achieve our best as individuals without being individualistic. As a Christian school we encourage learning within an environment that is supportive, collaborative and inclusive - "Do to others as you would have them do to you" is the 'Golden Rule' that is embedded in our ethos. We do our best to make sure that this ethos permeates every aspect of school-life - whether we are in the classroom, the community or busy with our many trips and events.

Everyone is, or can be, creative, if given the opportunity. Creativity involves thinking or behaving in an imaginative way. Imaginative activity should be purposeful. The process must generate something original and the outcome must be of value. We will seek to enthusiastically engage children in stimulating and innovative activities. A creative approach to teaching will improve attainment.
Aspire to Excellence
A high standard of discipline promotes excellent behaviour, fostering positive attitudes to build confidence and encourage independence.
We endeavour to create a safe, secure environment where all are welcomed and feel valued. Rigorous systems ensure that individual needs are recognised and supported using differentiated learning programmes in a climate of challenge and aspiration.
Promote Christian Practices
In all aspects of school life we seek to promote and develop the Christian attitudes of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, gentleness and self control (Galatians 5: 22-3) through the experiences we offer all our pupils.
The stakeholders at St. Wilfrid’s C. of E. Primary School will endeavour to provide a personalised learning environment in which specialist staff can deliver a creative curriculum in a building designed for purpose. The environment will enable staff to develop high quality schemes of work and learning programmes that will deliver an exciting and innovative curriculum, meeting the needs of all children. A combination of existing school strengths and new areas of development will provide the foundation for this approach. Children will continue to access a comprehensive range of support and be provided with opportunities to take part in an increasingly wide range of enrichment and extra-curricular activities. The school will balance the desire for high academic standards with the education of the whole child.
