Ethos and Values

As a school, we strive to create a happy, caring and safe environment in which all children can have a sense of value and belonging. On this basis all other aspects of the education process are built. We value our strong links with parents and carers and take every opportunity to strengthen relationships within the wider community, giving our children an appreciation of, awareness of, and respect for the richness of a variety of cultures

Our aims are for every child at Ham Dingle to:

  • Receive the best education possible though access to a broad and balanced curriculum that combines excellence in teaching with enjoyment of learning.​

  • Achieve the very best they can and be the best version of themselves through social, cultural, moral and spiritual development​

  • Flourish in a happy, safe and secure environment​

  • Have a sense of value and belonging with individual achievements valued by all. ​

  • Be well prepared for the next stage of their education
