Vision & Values

Our School Vision and Pillars: created collectively by Students, Staff, Parents/Carers and Governors


Our school is such a special and unique place to learn. Through high quality teaching and the broadest possible range of experiences within and beyond the classroom, we aim to inspire every member of our community to make a real difference, drawing upon the natural world for inspiration and motivation. We are all learners and recognise the challenges and barriers that anybody can face, at the same time being totally committed to developing those qualities required to overcome these. By building independence, resilience, a keenness to try new things, a positive attitude and a commitment to excellence in all that we do – we will all be Ready to Fly and ready to follow our dreams


Our ethos is completely child-centred, delivering a curriculum that puts our pupils' needs first. Underpinning everything that happens in school are 5 key values/pillars, preparing every child to succeed in and contribute to the modern world. These are:


• Family

• Respect

• Nature

• Rainbow (acceptance, diversity and links to William Wordsworth)

• Ready to Fly (our link to Sir George Cayley)


What does it mean to be ‘Ready to Fly’ at Brompton and Sawdon Primary School?
