Aims and Values

School Values
At Petersfield all staff and Governors subscribe to our school vision to inspire confident learners who will thrive in a changing world by:
  • Recognising the potential of every individual to achieve excellence, positively addressing underachievement.
  • Providing access to outstanding teaching, a range of excellent resources and an exciting, broad, balanced, enriched curriculum.
  • Providing a welcoming, calm, happy, purposeful, and nurturing community.
  • Developing self-motivation, independence, positive attitudes and confidence.
  • Providing a learning environment that is attractive, stimulating, informative and that instils a sense of pride.
  • Providing a high-quality education within a Christian context for pupils living within the parish boundaries of Arrington, Croydon, Orwell, Tadlow, Wimpole and Whaddon, and also for pupils from a wider area on religious grounds.
  • Promoting the values of: Respect, Friendship, Courage, Inspiration, Equality, Excellence and Determination.
In order to meet our vision, staff and the Governing Body agreed the following aims:
  • To ensure that every member of our community experiences a safe, happy environment based on the teachings of Jesus, which are love and forgiveness.
  • To foster confidence, responsibility and self esteem in each individual so that they can make good independent choices and contribute fully to the school and community.
  • To address all learning needs to develop each individual's full potential.
  • To engender a lifelong enjoyment of learning through the delivery of a broad and lively curriculum.
  • To prepare pupils to be good citizens in a diverse and rapidly changing multicultural world.
Our pupils considered the aims and the elected School Council decided to explain them in their own words.
