Inspired to Learn, Confident to Achieve

Values, Aims and Ethos

Our mission statement Inspired to Learn, Confident to Achieve is at the heart of everything we do.

So our shared Vision is for Castlethorpe First School to be a school that parents, teachers, pupils, governors and the local community can be enormously proud of:

  • A school that is vibrant, happy and has high expectations.
  • A school that believes that every child can achieve and succeed.
  • A school where children enjoy learning because they are encouraged to be independent thinkers.
  • A school where stories, books and reading are held in upmost importance.
  • And where children develop a sense of self belief and a love of learning, forming a strong basis for lifelong learning.

To achieve this we aim:

  • To provide a caring, nurturing and stimulating environment where all children feel safe, secure and happy.
  • To inspire children to achieve and celebrate their successes.
  • To maintain high expectations in all aspects of children’s learning.
  • To encourage children to embrace new challenges.
  • To be curious and embrace new challenges as a learning community.
  • To be an integral part of the community.
