Northfield Values & Ethos


Education at Northfield Primary School is seen as a partnership between Governors, parents, teachers and children.  Only with full co-operation, mutual support and respect can we develop each child’s potential to the full.


The ethos of our school is of paramount importance.  We strive to achieve a caring atmosphere where pupils and teachers can work closely together. We aim to provide an environment in which the children can develop into thoughtful caring people.


We aim to offer the children the opportunities to develop in the following areas of learning and experience, and through these cover the statutory requirements of the National curriculum.


Aesthetic, social, creative, ethical, linguistic, physical, spiritual, mathematical, technical.


Our school motto is, 'Forward Together, and with the support and encouragement of all connected to the school, that is exactly what we hope to achieve, instilling in all our children, COMMITMENT, ASPIRATION and SUCCESS.


At Northfield Primary School we aim to work together to create a warm, caring and secure environment where every individual feels valued and where there is an atmosphere of mutual respect, which will enable children to develop spiritually, morally, emotionally, intellectually and physically.


To achieve this we will:


  • Provide an education for all children that is exciting, enjoyable and stimulating where pupils, parents, staff and governors are valued and where success is celebrated.


  • Set a good example by encouraging high expectations of learning and behaviour.


  • Ensure a broad and balanced curriculum that is inclusive of all pupils.


  • Encourage individuality, responsibility, build confidence and independence.


  • Support staff continuous professional development.


  • Work in partnership with parents and the community.
