School Vision & Values

In September 2012 staff and governors met to consider the school’s vision and values and to look at what our focus and purpose is as an organisation. We revisit our school vision at the beginning of every year to ensure that it truly encapsulates all that we are trying to achieve for our children. 


Our Vision

“Growing & Learning Together!”

At Totley All Saints Church of England Primary School, we aim to be an exceptional school with Christian values at the very heart of the community. We are committed to providing a caring environment where every child can thrive & is supported to achieve their unique and amazing potential as a child of God.

An exceptional school is one that:
– Establishes excellent values & ethos;
– Ensures that relationships & behaviour are outstanding;
– Raises achievement & attainment to the highest possible levels;
– Proves that learning & teaching are of a consistently high standard.



Minion 1At Totley All Saints, education will be holistic and fun-filled. In a calm and well ordered environment, based on love & mutual respect, all children will be valued as individuals and their moral and spiritual development encouraged. The school will promote good health & fitness, perseverance, optimism and a “can-do” attitude in all. We believe that every child is entitled to enjoy their childhood and to feel safe & loved. We will celebrate each child’s success and encourage them to take pride in their own, as well as others’, achievements. We will engage children in a creative curriculum that is tailored to their needs and reflects the context and community in which they live. At all times we will seek to inspire children with a love of learning which will remain with them throughout their lives.

Together with our parents, churches & wider community, we aim for all children to succeed in body, mind, heart & spirit. Children will have opportunities to work both individually and collaboratively, giving them confidence, skills & the self esteem needed to be successful in a rapidly developing world.

In order to fulfil the vision, we will seek to constantly adapt and improve, listen to parents and children and have ongoing reflection & debate amongst stakeholders.


Christian Values posterOur Mission

In pursuing our Vision, we believe that we can develop future citizens that we can all be proud of and people that make a difference both to their community and to their world. We also believe that everyone in our school community deserves to be valued and cared for completely, equally and unconditionally. Through an awareness of understanding the rights of others, we will promote individual and collective responsibility towards respecting and protecting the rights of all, regardless of race, religion, age or ability. Together, we will work to develop a healthy and caring community where we can articulate our values and all children have a sense of their personal identity and worth.

Our Values

We actively seek to promote the teachings of Jesus & particularly his words: “Do to others what you would have them do to you.” (Matthew 7v12). We will uphold the principles of justice & compassion for all, forgiveness & generosity & will encourage all children to work for the good of others rather than for their own self interest.
