Mission Statement, Values and Aims
‘Children at the heart of our School. School at the heart of our community.’
We have recently engaged in a review of our core school values.
We have six core values that underpin everything we do at Cottam Primary School.
The 6 Cottam Core-Values are:
Courage, Compassion, Challenge, Curiosity, Respect, Ambition
Courage: learners who boldly face challenges and support each other through difficult moments in learning and life.
Compassion: learners who care for one another, have empathy for others and want to act to make a better world.
Challenge: learners who embrace opportunities and are willing to learn from failure.
Curiosity: learners who are eager to know and learn more and ask questions and explore answers for themselves.
Respect: learners within our community who care for themselves, others, the world around them and accept people for who they are.
Ambition: learners with big dreams who recognise that hard work and positivity are the building blocks for future greatness.
Alongside our core values, we also promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
