Aims, Mission and Vision

School AIMS

Heather Primary School promotes high achievement and learning for life for all children so that they will:

  • Enjoy life long learning.
  • Achieve high standards in all areas of the curriculum.
  • Develop their individuality in creative, physical and spiritual areas.
  • To develop confident, caring, enquiring individuals prepared for the future.
  • Gain advanced technical skills and apply them appropriately.
  • Be able to work independently and collaboratively.
  • Have a developing respect for others by awareness and understanding of the wider community both in the UK and the world.


We believe that each child will succeed through experiencing quality in:

  • A happy and stimulating learning environment.
  • An ethos of support, challenge and encouragement to succeed.
  • A broad and challenging curriculum.
  • Opportunities to share, to demonstrate and to celebrate their achievements.
  • An enriching programme of extra curricular activities (including an annual theatre visit for all children and a residential experience for upper and lower Key Stage 2 children).
  • Off-site class visits linked to curriculum activities.
  • Learning partnerships between school, home and the wider community.
  • Developing and maintaining links with other schools in the UK and beyond.
  • An approach that promotes equal opportunities and inclusion.
  • A safe and secure environment, where all adults involved in working with children have voluntary DBS checks.


During the Spring and Summer terms of 2016, every stakeholder in the school – pupils, teachers, support staff, governors, parents – was asked to share their ‘vision’ for the school. You can see all of their thoughts collected together in the document below.
