Mission Statement

The Priory is a vibrant, Church of England school, aiming to provide an outstanding education, for all children to be happy and confident as they are challenged within a Christian environment of creativity, love and respect.


School Vision and Values at the Priory

Our magnificent Victorian school building maybe over one hundred years old but we have a 21st century outlook at the Priory! Our vision for the school is for all children to achieve to their best ability without constraints of personal circumstances.

As a church school, our Christian values underpin everything we do from how we learn, play and interact with each other to caring and encouraging others by following Christ’s example. This is at the very heart of the school and we expect children to be able to learn in a safe environment where resilience, resourcefulness, being reflective and thinking about how we relate to others is a focus for everything we do.

How does this work in practice? Our daily Collective Worship and our adoption of the principles of the ‘Growth Mindset’ mean children and staff are always aware of how we can develop spiritually, morally and academically.

Our school has a cohort of children who represent many different backgrounds and as a school we aim to be as inclusive as possible to ensure our Christian and British values of tolerance and opportunity for all are embedded. We believe every child should be exposed to exceptional learning experiences and we therefore set ourselves the aim to reach the highest of standards and levels of well-being.
