Ethos and Values
On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I’d like to welcome you to Victoria Primary School.
We are a school which believes in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors. As such we want all those who become part of our school community, whether a child or an adult, to feel valued, happy, respected and to recognise their role in continuing to make our school the best that it can be.
We believe that all children who become pupils at our school deserve the best and our aim is to help them succeed by reaching their potential in every area of life – academic, social, emotional, mental, personal, physical and spiritual. We do this by ensuring that each child has a personalised curriculum where they understand their educational journey– where it is beginning, where it will take them and how they will get there!
Within our school we work very hard to create a team of teachers, non-teaching and support staff that will support each child in reaching their potential. Many who visit us comment on the strength of our ‘staff team’ and their shared commitment to help every child in the school achieve their best.
We value the broad and balanced curriculum which our staff offers and all children are able to access not only academic, but creative and physical areas of the National Curriculum fully, so that they can receive the highest standard of education.
You will gain a sense of the value that we place in each child and our desire to ensure standards, in all areas, remain as high as possible within the caring and happy community which is Victoria Primary School.
The school is one of the founding members of the Nurture Academies Trust and converted to academy status in January 2017. The other schools in the Trust are: Parkwood Primary, Denholme Primary, Lapage Primary, Byron Primary and Fearnville Primary schools.
