Values, Aims and Ethos

A child’s education begins from the moment they enter the world.  As teachers we join parents as partners in a process which they have already begun.  We believe that a good school is an extension of  home, building upon the care and values that parents provide.

Our shared vision is that Willand School will be a safe, happy, inclusive environment with high expectations and standards in which all children can become:

  • Successful learners- who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.
  • Confident individuals- who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • Responsible citizens -who make a positive contribution to society.

This vision is underpinned by our total commitment to our core values which are of great importance to us:

  • Equality
  • Respect
  • Trust
  • Honesty
  • Resilience
  • Tolerance
