Mission and Aims

At Pytchley Primary School, we aim to provide a happy, secure and caring atmosphere, where each child can achieve their full potential as well-rounded individuals.

Our school aims to:

  • Create a happy and enriching learning environment for children where each child is known and valued in the community and learns to care for and respect themselves, each other and their environment.
  • Help children to experience Christian values and how they can apply them in everyday life.
  • Promote access to stimulating and enjoyable learning and so enable children to achieve their full potential: socially, emotionally, physically, academically and spiritually in preparation for secondary school and adult life.
  • Be an integral part of the village community and its heritage, where staff, children, parents, the parish church and the wider community are welcome and share a common purpose.
  • The beliefs and teaching of the Church of England are the foundation of our school’s commitment to prepare each child for the challenges and responsibilities that lie ahead.

We work to achieve our aims by:

  • Providing an environment where learning experiences are based on the natural curiosity of each child.
  • Providing a broad and balanced education where high standards are promoted.
  • Having a high regard for each child as an individual, valuing the contribution they have to make.
  • Catering for individual differences of interests, strengths, rates of working and ways of learning.
  • Recognising the learning, which has already taken place and building on that to ensure success by setting individual targets and challenges that are achievable and appropriate.
  • Recognising and celebrating effort as well as achievement.
  • Enabling each child to experience success and so build self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Promoting positive attitudes, self-discipline and independence of mind.
  • Teaching respect for others regardless of faith, ethnic background, age, gender, sexuality or disability.
