Ethos and Values Statement

Vision – “Big enough to make a difference yet small enough to know each child”

Abbeyfield prides itself on being an inclusive school, which is big enough to make a difference yet small enough to know each child. This is what makes us unique.

We aim to nurture the intellectual, social, creative, physical, moral and spiritual development of all our pupils. We see each child as a unique person with an individual identity. Each of us has an equal role in realising our vision – pupil, school, home and the wider community:

With the shared involvement of every individual, we aspire to be a confident outward-looking community in which every member:

  • Enjoys creative, dynamic and reflective learning within our broad and balanced curriculum
  • Is supported, challenged and equipped for their future
  • Values and celebrates the diversity of our community and to promote respect, tolerance and understanding of all.

Our Priorities for 2019 – 2020

  • Developing an aspirational culture supported by consistent approaches to teaching and learning which ultimately lead to aspirational outcomes.
  • Ensuring that the needs of all students are catered for through a broad and balanced curriculum that is effectively differentiated.
  • Developing student character and embedding the schools core values around integrity and kindness.
  • Improving staff welfare by consistently recognising staff commitment and pressures supported by high quality & relevant CPD.
