Fossdene Primary

Values and Ethos

With pupils at the heart of all we do we set a vision to move and lead the school forward. We encourage professional growth by bringing together expertise and nurturing others so that high standards are evident. In doing so we will build a harmonious community within the school and beyond.


School values

We have redeveloped and relaunched our school values for 2021.

We now have six values which are shared and shaped by all members of the school community and reflect our purpose and vision for Fossdene.







The respect all staff, pupils and families is non-negotiable, and all staff are expected to remain professional at all times. Every stake holder is valued and it is recognised that each stake holder has an important role to play.

Permanent and supply staff are expected to operate within professional and respectful boundaries in line with the whole school ethos and policies.

As a school community, we will revisit these values during the school year.
