OUR ETHOS AND VALUES
Through quality first teaching and high expectations of all, Strike Lane Primary School aims to create a happy, secure, and stimulating environment. We are committed to putting the needs of the children first whether they be educational, personal or social and we believe that education extends beyond the academic to the development of the whole child. To this end we ensure that the children have opportunities to be involved in engaging and enriching curriculum which is designed to reflect the needs and interests of our children. Our motto is ‘Learning and Growing Together’ and as such we strive to enable all our children to develop into capable and confident life-long learners, nurturing and encouraging our pupils to become well-rounded, responsible and caring global citizens.
Strike Lane Primary School places the highest importance on the safeguarding and welfare of children. The governors, head teacher and staff will carry out their responsibilities efficiently, effectively and diligently to ensure that this is a safe learning environment for all.
We aim to provide the highest possible standards of education for all of our children so they can develop and fulfil themselves by:
