Values and Ethos


At Scotts Primary School, we seek to provide the highest standard of education for all pupils in our care. Our vision is to instil in our pupils an enjoyment and thirst for learning so that they are able to fulfil their potential.

Our mission statement ‘Imagine with all your mind … Believe with all your heart … Achieve with all your might’ embodies our whole school ethos. We want our pupils to be confident, aspirational and empowered to participate successfully at an academic, social and emotional level in a rapidly changing world.

At Scotts we continue to strive for the best education and demand the best of ourselves, so that every learner achieves their full potential.

We provide a positive, stimulating and caring learning environment where every individual is valued and respected as part of the school community. We offer pupils a dedicated team of staff who are committed to developing the knowledge, skills, attitudes and understanding which will enable children to enjoy learning, achieve success and to feel content and fulfilled. We ensure that our children learn about, and have confidence in, themselves as learners so that every child makes good progress.

As an inclusive, caring school where every child matters, we recognise that all children have talents and abilities to celebrate, and a part of our role is to help them discover and develop these. We encourage a strong community spirit, where we show consideration and respect for each other; understand differences, and uphold kind, well-mannered behaviour.


At Scotts we believe that every child deserves to be successful. We challenge and develop our children to become curious, autonomous learners who are inspired and stimulated through a rich and varied curriculum; appropriate to individual needs. We develop children’s learning skills and by setting high expectations and exacting standards, we prepare our children to flourish, have high self-esteem and self-belief.

We value the partnership that exists between parents, children, staff and governors and strongly believe that by working together we ensure the children at our school experience the best possible start in life.


                    Just as our school is at the heart of our community, our children are at the heart of all we do at Scotts.
