Visions and Values


Our Vision and Aims

Our vision is to be a nurturing community where we aspire to be the best we can at all we do and be kind to each other. We believe in respecting everybody.

Our aims are that:

  • our curriculum will be broad and balanced, and encourage pupils to not only learn and understand that learning is for life, but also be curious, creative and resilient

  • our community will provide a safe learning environment where respect and caring attitudes flourish and supportive relationships help children to be confident, happy and honest

  • our pupils will have a positive self-esteem and pride and belief in themselves, each other and the school

  • our children will be:









How did we decide upon our vision?


One of the three key tasks for a governing body includes setting the school’s vision. We reviewed the school’s vision and aims in 206/17 and the process we followed included:

  • Discussing the attributes and values we hoped children would have when they left Gilded Hollins, at a governing body meeting

  • Asking teachers to pick attributes and values they felt it was important for children to have

  • Asking parents to pick attributes and values they felt it was important for children to have

  • Drawing up a draft of the vision and aims using the attributes and values receiving most votes from staff and parents combined, and discussing and amending this at another governing body meeting

  • The Chair and Head discussing the amended version

  • The Chair meeting with school council and talking them through the last part of the vision.
