Values and Ethos

We strive to provide a school in which all our children can thrive, both academically and socially, whatever their ability.
Through our aims and ethos we endeavour to create a school in which every member of the community is treated with respect and thoughtfulness. Our code of conduct is designed to support our values in school so that every child can reach their potential. 


Staff here know that Greengate is a place where we can nurture ALL children. It is a place where children are allowed to express themselves and their every talent, no matter how great or small! All talent is developed and built upon. Our aim is to ensure that the children are happy. We strongly believe that a happy child will enjoy learning!

We believe that for each child to develop we have to promote;

  • A sense of self-motivation and the ability to work both independently and co-operatively.
  • Confidence to make informed choices, which lay the foundations for their future life.
  • The ability to recognise and value a sense of right and wrong. We guide each child towards independence in these areas by providing rich learning opportunities, high expectations and challenges
