Vision and ethos

Our vision is simple. At Barclay Primary we want children to be happy and successful. We strive to develop confident young people who want to learn and achieve their best - but also to have an understanding of others and the world around them.

Our ethos

  • To provide a kind, safe and stimulating environment in which to educate each child so he/she can reach their full potential
  • To create a happy, healthy school in which everyone feels valued
  • To ensure all teaching is targeted to the individual needs of each pupil so they are able to make rapid and sustained progress across the curriculum
  • To have high aspirations and expectations for all children in behaviour and achievement
  • To encourage children to be self-motivated, positive learners with enquiring minds so they can apply themselves to tasks with increased self-discipline, and have responsibility for their actions and learning
  • To provide an inclusive, diverse curriculum, which is balanced and differentiated to each child’s needs and ability.
  • To use technology to support and engage pupils throughout the curriculum
  • To make sure all pupils develop a strong sense of self; through digital citizenship and e safety lessons
  • To have an ethos in which all children co-operate with each other, to show respect and tolerance towards others.
  • To involve parents and carers in their children’s education
  • We achieve all this under the banner of the Barclay Five Ways - Aspiration, Responsibility, Respect, Honesty and Kindness
