“Nurture ~ Believe ~ Discover ~ Achieve”
Our vision for Findern Primary School reflects a passionate commitment to learning and recognition of the uniqueness of individual learners. It is driven by our desire to offer the best possible education for our pupils in partnership with parents and the local community.
Findern Primary School will be a Centre:
For learning where high standards are pursued with consistency and enthusiasm
Where individuals are valued and helped to achieve their personal best.
Where effective partnerships secure the success of the school.
Findern Primary School serves its community by working in partnership to provide an education of the highest quality within the context of an understanding of shared values. As a school we celebrate the diversity of the wider community and are committed to the principles of inclusion and equality of opportunity.
Through our aims and values we promote and endorse the Government’s aim for every child, whatever their background or their circumstances, to have the support they need to:
Make a Positive Contribution
Enjoy and Achieve
Achieve Economic Well-being
Values are fundamental expressions of what we think and believe. As a school we encourage children to think about personal and social values, to become aware of, and involved in the life and concerns of their community and society, and so develop their capacity to be active and effective future citizens.
