Values and Ethos


To ensure every pupil acquires the skills, knowledge and values, to achieve their maximum potential in a caring, nurturing, challenging and inspiring environment.


To maximise learning opportunities and improve outcomes for every pupil.


We aim to:


HRPS is a values based school. Our values programme promotes diversity and unites children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community in our shared vision. Core values (which include British Values) are promoted through all aspects of school life. Values essential to developing self-respect and regard for others, and for making a positive contribution to society are discussed and explored with children in lessons, in assemblies and in everyday interactions. Values such as respect, enthusiasm, resilience, tolerance, and empathy form part of our programme. We strongly believe in making our school a central part of our community and in giving children the skills and understanding to make a positive contribution to that community – values based education is crucial in this.
