Vision and British Values

Our Vision, Ethos and Values

This new vision statement has been composed by all stakeholders at Heron Hill school in 2023. It reflects the priorities of the school and the needs of the community.

It reflects our joint collaborative work with the pupils of Heron Hill. Our children!

Our school motto “learning together, playing together, growing together” is the goal we strive to achieve every day. We want children to love learning and be happy and healthy in our care. 

​We know every child is different and every child in our care is treated as a unique individual. Our dedicated and experienced staff provide an inclusive education, extremely high levels of care alongside the highest ambitions for ALL children. 

Our school values are Relationships, Respect and Responsibility.


British Values

There is no place for extremist views of any kind in our school, whether from internal sources (pupils, staff, visiting adults, governors etc) or external sources (school community, external agencies or individuals).

Any prejudice, discrimination or extremist views, including derogatory language, displayed by pupils, staff, visitors or parents will always be challenged and, where appropriate, dealt with. Where misconduct by a teacher is proven, the matter will be referred to the National College for Teaching and Leadership for their consideration. Misconduct by other staff will be dealt with under normal school disciplinary procedures.

We encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We ensure that partisan political views are not promoted in the teaching of any subject in the school and where political issues are brought to the attention of the pupils, reasonably practicable steps are taken to offer a balanced presentation of opposing views to pupils.
