Values and Ethos

At Milton Primary, we are proud to know all our children as individuals. We are driven by a determination to do the best we can to prepare them for the community and the world in which they will grow up and to give them the knowledge, skills and values they will need to function effectively as local, national and global citizens.

With this in mind, our goal is that when our children leave Milton Primary, they will be independent, life-long learners who are confident risk-takers and respectful, aspirational members of the community. We therefore work to create a happy and responsive environment where all children are engaged, challenged and encouraged to reflect on their achievements.

To help us achieve this, our academy motto, vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide the conditions for children to grow into confident and happy citizens.

Our Vision:

Imagine a safe, stimulating environment, ringing with the sound of children’s laughter. Watch as they enjoy the challenge of new experiences and listen in as they pose questions and solve exciting problems, with developing skill. Observe confident, reflective and playful learners who possess the self- belief and knowledge that enables them to take risks. Admire the high levels of academic, sporting and artistic achievement, as everyone strives to be the best that they can be. Notice how the needs, interests and talents of all are valued and supported. Join us, in celebrating success at every level, as all learners discover and develop their own passions, potential and individuality. Hear the buzz of enthusiastic talk, generated by people of all ages learning from each other through an exciting, creative curriculum, encompassing new technologies. See how learning extends beyond the school gates, to embrace the outdoors and wider community. Notice the exemplary behaviour, as learners assume responsibility for making choices and consider how their actions affect others. Watch as they are empowered to rise to any challenges in the future. Enjoy the security and the harmony of a group of people who work together, nurture and care for each other. Sense their respect for people from different backgrounds and cultures,  for society and the natural world.
Sense everyone’s pride in themselves, each other and their academy.

This is our academy, a place where everyone has PRIDE ~
