The Vision

Positively Working together to Succeed

Our vision is to:

  • Be a happy, self-motivated school
  • Believe in ourselves no matter what
  • Respect ourselves and each other
  • Embrace new challenges and opportunities
  • Reflect on our experiences as we grow
  • Support each other in all we do to create a learning environment where we exceed our goals. 

Aims of the School

At Priors Wood we aim to:

  • Provide a happy, safe and caring school
  • Develop and realise the full potential of all within the school, academically, personally and socially, both as individuals and as members of our community
  • Provide a broad and balanced academic, physical and creative education through which the highest standards for each individual are achieved
  • Equip each individual with appropriate learning and thinking skills and nurture their developing independence
  • Develop the self-esteem and self-confidence of all individuals within the school community
  • Maintain a stimulating environment that provides the appropriate challenge for individuals where the skills and attributes of staff are most effectively deployed
  • Develop social awareness and concern for others, promote citizenship and equip children with the life skills they need through links with the wider community
  • Develop a collaborative community where positive attitudes, relationships and role-models as well as mutual support and respect are valued, and high standards of behaviour are expected
  • Establish a community spirit and promote a common ethos based on British values
  • Develop a sense of reverence, appreciation, responsibility, awe and wonder about our world.
