Aims and Values at Thomas Reade Primary School



Our vision is to develop caring citizens with a lifelong love of learning, embracing excellence and enjoyment



We aim to work with our children to enable them to:

  • develop lively and enquiring minds
  • develop, in a balanced way, spiritual, moral, social, cultural, personal and academic qualities, and thus prepare them for their position in the wider world community.
  • become effective learners with high motivation and good work habits
  • have high self-esteem, self-confidence and independence
  • set their own high standards and make the best possible progress in all areas of the curriculum
  • respect themselves, others and the environment
  • enjoy their time spent in primary school and take a pride in their achievements
  • have equal access both physically and through the curriculum for all children regardless of disabilities, race, gender or religious beliefs.



In order to give our children the best chance of achieving these aims, we will give them high-quality professional support by:

  • providing a friendly, caring and happy school with strong community links
  • helping staff to achieve their potential through teamwork and mutual respect
  • working with parents in partnership for the benefit of their children’s education
  • providing a broad and balanced curriculum
  • using a variety of teaching and learning styles in a stimulating learning environment
  • acknowledging the individuality of each child and planning work in response to their needs
  • developing independence skills and self-motivation
  • giving children opportunities to reflect on their work and behaviour
  • using a variety of up-to-date resources
  • providing an enriched programme of extracurricular activities, visitors to the school and visits out of school
  • removing boundaries to learning for all
