Schools Vision and Values



At St. Stephen’s Infant School we strive to provide a broad and balanced education for all children in our care. We aim to create a happy, caring and stimulating learning environment in which all children can grow in self-esteem to reach their full potential.

In particular we aim, by learning together, to:

  • Develop a love of learning and a desire to continue building on skills and knowledge throughout our lives. Make learning fun.
  • Teach children to think for themselves and develop an enquiring mind by providing a safe and secure environment.
  • Encourage emotional development through the support and care shown by others in school. Nurture.
  • Encourage mutual respect. Help people to learn to live together in a community, showing sensitivity to the differences between each other. Culturally and morally inclusive.
  • Help all children to become responsible independent people who are able to look at and think deeply about the world around them, preparing them for life in modern Britain.
  • Widen experiences in order to raise aspirations.
  • Involve parents as partners in learning and work together as a team.

  Our vision and values have been developed with our children, parents, staff and governors – September 2014
