Our School Values

Prior Heath is a very happy and friendly environment in which to learn.  We place an emphasis on providing high quality learning experiences for every child, enabling them to reach their full potential.  We teach a broad and balanced curriculum that encourages perseverance and excites our learners.  The needs and abilities of individual children are carefully considered by our highly experienced staff and well-being is at the centre of our decision making.  We are committed to high quality safeguarding practice and ensure that there is equality of opportunity for all.

Our school values, chosen by the pupils and staff, form the foundation of this vision and include: respect, kindness, responsibility, teamwork and perseverance.

As part of our nurturing environment, we value and celebrate the achievements of every child.  The experiences that the children have at Prior Heath prepare them for the next part of their educational journey and provide them with memories that will hopefully last a lifetime.
