Aims, Values and Ethos

Our aim is for the children of Nayland Primary to be provided with excellent learning experiences which lead to consistently high levels of individual academic and social achievement so that they can develop into people with strong feelings of self-worth.

  • We challenge and extend each child with learning tailored to their abilities.
  • We balance learning content and skills to ensure the development of powerful learners
  • We teach a broad and balanced curriculum to a high standard with particular emphasis on literacy and numeracy.
  • We promote extra-curricula activities which enhance and enrich pupils development.
  • We believe parents have an active role in supporting what is learned in school and we encourage parental participation.
  • We provide an environment which promotes confidence, independence, responsibility and a positive attitude towards learning.
