our vision, aims & values
Grafton Primary School is committed to safeguarding every child in our school.
We believe that if all members of our school community work together, we can deliver educational excellence for all our children. The vision for our school is intertwined with our core values and underpinned by our ethos - that we value every day in a child’s life, that every day, every interaction, every lesson provides opportunities for children to take ownership of their learning and well-being. Through inspirational and challenging teaching, we aim to equip each child with the skills for life-long learning, to be aware of their rights and have the courage to stand up for them and the rights of others. We aim to develop and promote sustainability and an awareness of wider global issues through our curriculum and the links made through our local and global communities. The effective partnerships we have made will continue to provide support and challenge as we deliver a curriculum that ensures children are moving onto their next venture with the skills and values to set them on the path to achieve their dreams.
