Ethos and Values
Working Together, Aiming High, Shining Brightly
Let your light shine before others - Matthew 5:16
At Milton Ernest C of E Primary School we believe that education enriches people’s lives and aspirations. We value everyone and strive for all to reach their full potential. We base our work on the principle that children learn most effectively in a secure, exciting, challenging and inclusive environment that nurtures a life-long love of learning. As a Church of England school, Christian faith is central to our school’s ways of learning and living.
We work in partnership with parents, the local community, All Saints Church, other schools in the area and fellow professionals to build our children’s social, emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual and ethical skills.
To provide the best possible education for each child through the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum that matches individual needs and aspirations
To provide a secure, happy and stimulating learning environment in which children are challenged and encouraged to take risks
To enable children to become numerate, literate, creative and curious
To promote a healthy life style
To nurture an atmosphere in which children, parents, staff and community feel part of the school family.
To encourage mutual respect, confidence, co-operation and self-esteem
To help our children to understand and respect other cultures, beliefs and faiths – so that they celebrate diversity and have no fear of difference.
“Many parents describe the school as having a 'family feel' and say that the staff support pupils' individual needs well.' Ofsted Report, May 2017
With faith, we learn, care and grow together
This underpins what our school is all about. This was developed with the staff and children and then approved by the governors and the church. Evidence of how we meet our strapline can be seen in the entrance hall and as you take a visit around our school.
