Ethos and Values
At Biggin Hill Primary School, we believe in giving every child the opportunity to reach their full potential, by providing a high-quality learning environment where they can thrive both academically and emotionally.
We are invested and dedicated to providing a safe, happy and nurturing environment which is based upon mutual respect and collaboration. Through our tailored curriculum we foster a love of learning and a place for our children to develop a sense of self and belonging creating readiness for the next stage of their education.
We strive to ensure that Biggin Hill Primary School is at the heart of the community, where all our children and families feel safe and supported. We establish an ethos which is inclusive, creative and aspirational; ensuring that pupils are self-motivated, confident and ambitious.
Within the school, you will meet children that are knowledgeable about the world around them; passionate and resilient about their own learning journey and proud to be part of our school community.
We aim to inspire, challenge and expect our pupils to achieve the standards of work and behaviour that they are capable of through:
- Equipping pupils with academic skills and social attributes to meet the demands of today’s world and ensure their continued well-being;
- Providing a collaborative culture in which the children can develop their emotional intelligence, self-confidence and self-esteem;
- Maintaining an environment where children can develop self-discipline, responsibility and self-motivation;
- A curriculum that stimulates and challenges children to produce their best;
- Developing a love of learning and providing experiences in which children can succeed;
- Acknowledging and celebrating personal achievements and contributions to school life;
- Developing lively, enquiring minds and the ability to question and argue rationally;
- Encouraging pupils to work and interact with each other, regardless of, and with respect for gender, religion, cultural background, disability or any other factor that would discriminate, provide discord or ‘unfairness’;
- Working closely with parents/carers and families to ensure that all stakeholders see the positive benefits of working together.
