Melbourn Primary School

Making Learning Irresistible

Vision & Values

Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Our vision is to:

  • Broaden the horizons of our children and show them that the world is theirs to explore.
  • Create a community where diversity is valued; everyone is encouraged to speak and know they are listened to.
  • Enable everyone to be ambitious for a lifetime of learning.

Our values

We are a values-based school. This means we have key values which we explicitly teach and promote as part of our curriculum. These values we believe help our children become not only effective learners but members of our community who know how to interact positively with others. Our hope is that the children will be able to use and apply these values throughout their learning and later life, making a positive contribution in their families, social interactions, workplaces and wider community. We teach a value each half-term and this is often the focus of our assemblies and house circle times. Our values were generated and voted on by all staff, parents, governors and the wider community. We have a three-year cycle for teaching values.
