Our Ethos and Values

At Church Langley Primary School, we place great emphasis on good relationships and adopt a caring approach to all those who participate in the life of the school. We embrace the development of the ‘whole child’ and work together to promote positive attitudes towards life-long learning.

We believe that every individual is entitled to a wealth of interesting and stimulating experiences that challenge and enrich their learning, and enable them to fulfil their true potential in all aspects of life.

At Church Langley Primary School, we have high expectations of all pupils. We provide well-resourced, multi-sensory lessons, confidently delivered by enthusiastic adults who inspire well-motivated pupils to share ideas and develop independence of thought and action.

We build confidence and trust in one and other and encourage parents to play an active role in their child’s education. It is important to us that all our children feel safe and are protected.


Our ethos is reflected through the School’s values, which are:

  • To provide a safe, secure learning environment in which every child feels valued and is confident about expressing ideas and emotions freely and honestly.
  • To promote a high standard of education with a strong emphasis on the development of pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills.
  • To provide an inclusive learning community that instils enthusiasm, acceptance and self-confidence.
  • To encourage the physical, moral, cultural and spiritual development of every pupil regardless of children’s age, disability, sex, cultural background, linguistics, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
  • To create a stimulating, inspiring ethos in which children develop independence, positive self-esteem and enthusiasm for learning.
  • To make learning fun, enabling every child to reach the highest standards possible in all that they do: promoting effective learning through a range of facilities, successful teamwork and strong home-school partnerships.
  • To provide a broad and balanced curriculum that takes account of children’s different starting points and is available to all at an appropriate level.
  • To enable children to learn through first-hand, practical and investigative experiences that develop thinking skills and enhance understanding.
  • To provide a strong moral framework based on self-discipline, responsibility and respect for others that enables children to develop positive and tolerant attitudes towards each other, their work, our school and the wider community.
  • To foster respect for the rights, views, opinions and property of others, developing responsible citizens of the future.
  • To foster a love of learning that transcends the boundaries of school and develop attitudes which promote life-long learning.
  • To develop an appreciation of art, performance, music, poetry and develop spiritual awareness.
  • To promote good physical, emotional and mental health and well-being amongst all members of the school community; fostering resilience and the determination to achieve when faced with challenging experiences or situations.


The ethos and values of the school underpin the pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural and social development through the curriculum and other activities.
