Values and Ethos

At Birkwood Primary School, the happiness and well being of our children is paramount and we hope to instill in them a life-long love of learning and respect for both themselves and others.

We aim to inspire our children by providing a curriculum that is creative, that responds and enables children to lead their own learning; that equips them with the skills required for the 21st Century, for example, problem solving, higher order thinking skills, team work and co-operation.

We aim to cherish our children by trying to look after and respect each other at all times. We aim to provide a caring environment, where all are inspired and empowered to achieve their true potential as unique and valued individuals. 

We aim for our children to achieve the best that they can, by challenging and supporting them. The progress in all key stages will reflect the commitment of our teaching and support staff who will work hard to achieve high standards in behaviour and achievement in all areas of the curriculum.

We will be creative and flexible in providing a positive approach to learning in a safe, stable and exciting environment that will nurture each child’s individual needs. We want our school to be a welcoming, caring and safe school, a family community working in harmony. 

Our motto is:
‘Inspire, Cherish and Achieve together.’
