School ethos and values

We are dedicated to providing the very best care and education for all our children. We want our school to be a happy, inclusive and successful community.

Within a safe, positive and supportive environment, our children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own health and well-being. We promote a love of learning, which encourages our children to aim high and become valuable members of society. We pride ourselves on being a school at the heart of the Firthmoor community, involving pupils, parents and the wider community in our achievements.
