Our School Vision and Values

Our School Vision:

“The most valuable gift we can give a learner is to enable them to think for themselves, to care for others and thereby acquire a sense of self-worth and confidence which can be used to benefit both society and the individual.”

Our School Values:

 We are committed to improving the quality of the educational provision for all our children which will enable them to reach their full potential and attain the levels of knowledge, understanding and skills that society demands for their future lives.  High quality education at Hipsburn Primary School will be achieved by:

  • the whole staff team having high expectations of our children’s social, behavioural and academic performance
  • well planned, exciting and challenging teaching that develops lively, enquiring and open minds in our children
  • creating stimulating and attractive learning environments in which our children can take pride
  • fostering a purposeful working atmosphere that nurtures a positive esteem and self-image in all our children
  • working in partnership with parents, governors and the local community to enrich opportunities for our children
  • using the local area to enhance the curriculum and promote physical and mental well being
  • embedding the “Hipsburn Promise” across the whole school community
