NURSTEED Community Primary School

‘Together We Achieve More’

Values & Aims


In 2012 the whole school learnt from the example of great athletes in the run up to the London Olympics. We adopted the Junior Olympic Values (above), and ever since they've helped us focus on the things that matter most. For us it's part of the legacy of the London Olympics, helping us 'live the Olympic and Paralympic values'.

British Values

Through explicit teaching and in other ways we uphold fundamental British values, namely:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beilefs.

Our school always seeks to be fully inclusive. We welcome children whatever their background, faith or culture.

Our teaching, especially of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Religious Education (R.E), plus school assemblies/collective worship, respects a range of traditions from around the world. Weekly assemblies in class groups give children the opportunity to consider issues, including British Values, at an age-appropriate level.

Children are given numerous opportunities to contribute to their school community and to the wider community, helping them to see themselves as contributing members of society.

Our School Council gives children a voice, reflecting Britain's democratic foundations.

We fully accept our duties under the Prevent strategy and train staff accordingly.


Everything we do is focused on learning. We aim to make our school a place where:

  • Excellence is expected
  • Individuals are valued
  • Achievements are celebrated
  • Every child is happy and safe.



For children to:

  • Enjoy opportunities to learn and develop in all sorts of ways
  • Be helped to fulfil their potential
  • Be kind, responsible and helpful
  • Respect each other
  • Value their own, and others’ contributions and achievements.


For school adults to:

  • Provide a broad, balanced and lively curriculum
  • Teach all children effectively
  • Help children to learn to the best of their abilities
  • Maintain a secure, caring and supportive environment
  • Prepare children for secondary education and beyond.
  • For the school to be an active part of the local community, contributing and receiving in turn.
