Vision, Ethos and Values


We strive together in the Gayton family to provide a safe, happy learning environment, working above and beyond the expectations of the National Curriculum through the provision of a first class education with excellent teaching, opportunities and experiences, so that every child achieves his or her full potential.

We aim to:

  • build self-confidence and provide a wide range of experiences designed to encourage children to make safe and healthy choices;
  • to develop happy, inquisitive, enthusiastic learners who are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them;
  • develop socially adept and articulate children with an awareness of the world and a respect and tolerance for others;
  • prepare children for the next stage in their lives with a range of high quality literacy, numeracy, computing and life skills.
