Everyone Valued, Everyone Learning

Welcome to the website for Prae Wood Primary School

Our aims, values and expectations

At Prae Wood we will help everyone achieve their best in the following ways:

  • We create a happy, secure and stimulating environment where we all enjoy learning
  • We provide a broad, balanced, challenging and creative curriculum, which meets individual needs 
  • We build self-confidence, self-esteem and independence in order to achieve success 
  • We raise expectations so that every child can pursue excellence in everything they try and strive to do their best 
  • We instill a caring attitude which respects the beliefs and opinions of all within the school  and wider community, and respects the property of each other and the school 
  • We empower children to do better by the knowledge that they are valued and respected by all 
  • We promote active partnerships with parents and governors, whilst developing an understanding of how we fit within our wider community, and create purposeful links with that community 
  • We value curiosity, encourage a questioning attitude and promote a love of life-long learning 
  • We celebrate success in each other and expect positive behaviour, attitudes and values
  • We promote a positive attitude to healthy eating and lifestyles 
  • We encourage risk-taking in our learning and can learn from our mistakes

Below are some photographs that we feel exemplify our school's ethos of 'Everyone Valued, Everyone Learning', as well as our individual values.
