Our Vision and Values as a school

Our vision is that our pupils will leave school prepared, knowledgeable, confident and motivated for life’s journey.

At The Globe Primary Academy, we strive hard to achieve our vision by combining high moral and social values with good basic skills in English language, maths, sciences and the arts.  We value the fact that education comes about through partnerships with our parents, pupils and the wider community.

In order to help achieve our vision and to guide all members of our school community to work together we have four school values.  We use the values help to guide us in all that we do.

Our values are represented by mosaics in the Large Hall and are reinforced throughout the school in lessons and in assemblies and are:

  • Aspiration
  • Enjoyment
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience

We have chosen these values as we think that they help to deepen children’s positive values and in doing so, help them consider the implications of their choices in relation to themselves, the communities of which they are a part and the wider world.  We hope that they all also ensure that they aspire to be the very best that they can be, developing resilience and the ability to persevere even when the going gets a bit tougher.

We know how vital working in partnership with parents and carers really is, in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience. We strongly believe achievement and enjoyment go hand in hand to ensure each child’s excellent progress. We hope you will support our high expectations in all areas, especially in behaviour and achievement whether academic, sporting or in the arts.

We believe that children learn best when they are motivated, happy and interested so we are committed to providing a creative curriculum which meets the needs of every individual. A curriculum that is rich and diverse but also balanced and relevant. We believe in providing challenge and have high expectations for all our learners. We aim to create an environment where children’s efforts are valued and where everyone has a chance to shine.

We are a caring employer who invests in the future of our employees, as only through their excellence can we deliver excellence for the children and families whom we serve. To see more information about the school, please visit our website The Globe Primary Academy
