Aim, Ethos & Vision

At Castleside Primary School everyone is equal, respected and valued.

Our school prides itself in promoting caring relationships and teamwork that ensure all members of this special family are happy, well supported, believe in themselves and therefore thrive.

We firmly believe that “happy children learn best” and are committed to providing an environment where all pupils feel valued and are able to learn and play together in a caring, happy, co-operative and safe atmosphere. It is the responsibility of children, staff, governors and parents to ensure that high standards are maintained in an atmosphere of mutual respect, trust, honesty, openness, fairness and consistency.

Our Values:

  • Respectful: We treat others as we would want to be treated; with courtesy and consideration at all times.

  • Ambitious: We are tenacious in the pursuit of high aspirations for ourselves and for the achievement of our students.

  • Collaborative: We work together as one team towards shared goals. We support our colleagues and value other partners.

  • Inclusive: We celebrate diversity and do our best to include everyone in a meaningful and thoughtful manner.

  • Resilient: We have a confident, positive attitude to overcoming adversity. We engage in reflective conversations and adapt well to change.
