Abbey Meadows Community Primary SchoolGrowing Together

Values and Ethos

The school’s logo has always incorporated “Growing Together” and this is central to everything we aspire at Abbey Meadows.


Our ethos is based upon the partnership between home and school and the importance of establishing a positive teaching and learning environment. We are aware that education does not only take place in the classroom and are keen that parents and carers should take an active part in their children’s education. We encourage regular dialogue between home and school and we are keen that families are involved in school life.


We strive to create an environment where children and adults are happy, confident and safe and many visitors comment on the calm, friendly atmosphere when they visit the school. It is our aim that every member of the school community is treated with respect and that each person is treated fairly and well. We encourage and reinforce good behaviour and work to ensure that everyone implements rules fairly and consistently. Whilst recognising that good behaviour is important we also encourage everyone to develop good learning behaviours. This is done within a school ethos of hard work, care, commitment and responsibility and on the basic principles of honesty, respect, consideration and responsibility.
