The School Vision
For our children to achieve the highest academic outcomes and to become secure, fulfilled and active members of society.
This strategy has been developed in order to provide a comprehensive approach to the development of St Ebbe’s CofE [Aided] Primary School over the medium term.
The school has a vision with a supporting mission statement underpinned by a set of values.

- Responsibility – we care for our heritage, community and the environment;
- Equality – we foster a regard for justice and equality;
- Trust – we build trust so that we can work and learn co-operatively;
- Courage – we support each other to make brave choices, take responsible risks and stand up for our own beliefs;
- Compassion – we show care and concern in our relationship with others;
- Wonder – we foster an appreciation of beauty and an awareness of the spiritual dimension of life.
These values permeate the life of the school.
