Mission, Ethos and Values

Values & Ethos

Our school community is committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating environment.  We value and promote shared and personal achievement, high standards and respect for the individual. We believe that by working together we build understanding of one another and develop the self-esteem of every individual.


This Mission Statement represents the principles that we strive towards at Arundale Primary School. Throughout our prospectus we hope to show how we translate these aims into practice.

In our school every child will:


  • Be a member of an open, welcoming, supportive community
  • Know that home and school are working together
  • Be treated and valued as an individual
  • Be challenged and stimulated whilst enjoying a wide range of learning experiences
  • Be provided with a curriculum that is interesting and relevant
  • Develop basic skills
  • Develop a positive attitude towards learning within a creative curriculum
  • Feel happy, safe and secure
  • Be encouraged to be honest and truthful
  • Grow in self esteem
  • Make friends
  • Develop independence and a sense of individual responsibility
  • Be encouraged and motivated
  • Have equal opportunities
  • Have access to Inclusive opportunities
  • Be helped to appreciate the wonder of the world in which they live
  • Be provided with the opportunity to experience, understand and celebrate diversity


We will know we have been successful when our children:


  • attend regularly
  • are happily engaged, enjoy learning and achieve success
  • are actively involved in the wider life of school
  • are proud of being part of Arundale Primary School
