Values and Aims

At Stadhampton Primary School we believe that learning in school is learning for life. Our values and aims are summarised below:



  • To create a happy, friendly, secure and welcoming environment where everyone can feel valued and respected. 
  • To encourage children to develop a sense of responsibility, self-discipline and acceptable social behaviour.
  • To encourage good relationships, tolerance and a caring attitude towards others.
  • To provide equal opportunities for everyone.
  • To encourage pupils to work hard, aim high and have fun.



  • To educate each child to the best of his or her ability. We place a high priority on the basic skills of literacy and numeracy as well as providing a broad and balanced curriculum to enable all pupils to achieve their potential.
  • To value each child as an individual. We aim to provide opportunities for children to be challenged and to experience success, so that they acquire confidence to tackle all areas of the curriculum. Children are encouraged to have a positive attitude to life and to learning.
  • To provide a stimulating, well-ordered environment, with a variety of appropriate resources available for children to use.
