Our School Values

At Prior Heath we recognise that every child is a special individual with their own needs. We aim to provide a quality learning environment in which everyone is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential and become a valued and responsible member of the local, national and global community. We are committed to high quality safeguarding practice. We endeavour to provide a happy, safe and caring atmosphere in which all children are able to understand and value their achievements and those of others and engage fully in the joy of learning.

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