Vision and Values

Our Vision

Children staff and parents work actively in partnership to enable all children to realise
their full potential.

We aim for us all, as learners, to:


  • feel safe and valued as part of a caring community that celebrates success.
  • be independent thinkers / learners who are able to seek solutions creatively and cooperatively.
  • inspire an ‘enquiring’ mind and ask questions.
  • be confident enough to take risks in our learning.
  • experience and actively participate in a relevant, enjoyable curriculum that evolves to meet the needs of all.
  • be able to listen and articulate responses showing consideration to others.
  • be polite and courteous.
  • be proactive in our responsibilities towards the community, society, the environment and economy, linking ‘real life’ with our learning.
  • understand and respect diversity.
  • be aware of and recognise our own learning needs and be involved in planning future steps.
  • develop a sense of self-esteem: be well balanced and healthy individuals.

Our Aims


  • For children to operate as independent learners and thinkers
  • To inspire a love for learning

Together we care what we do, we enjoy what we learn, we achieve!

British Values

Promoting British Values

The 2014 Primary National Curriculum reinforces:

The need to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”




All maintained schools have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. At Longcot and Fernham CE Primary School we promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of our pupils and through this demonstrate our commitment to fostering fundamental British values.

Meeting requirements for collective worship, establishing a strong school ethos supported by effective relationships throughout the school, and providing relevant activities beyond the classroom are all ways we ensure pupils’ SMSC development. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance. 

It is expected that our children should understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. The school’s ethos, curriculum and teaching support the rule of English civil and criminal law.

Our vision for Longcot and Fernham CE Primary School reflects a passionate commitment to learning and recognition of the uniqueness of individual learners. It is driven by our desire to offer the best possible education for our pupils in partnership with parents and the local community.
