Our Vision and Goals

Our school vision statement 'learning to bring out the best in everyone' sums up everything we believe in.  We promote high achievement and a love of learning so that each child will flourish in this ethos of support, challenge and encouragement to succeed. Our aim is that all children at Hotwells will enjoy the richness of their learning and that their primary school experience will be a happy and memorable one.

As well as achieving academically, our children learn to express and develop their creativity and to develop as spiritual and social beings. In this way, children learn to be responsible citizens who can contribute positively to the world in which they live as well as having the skills they need to access the opportunities the world has to offer them. Our six school values (created by children, staff and the School Council) are:

responsibility, kindness, compassion, honesty, courage and aspiration.  

We focus on our school values in assemblies each week as well as building them into our classroom culture and embedding them in the ethos of our school.  You can Click here to find out more about learning at Hotwells.
