Vision for Hurstbourne Tarrant
C of E Primary School.
We want Hurstbourne Tarrant C of E Primary School to be a place recognised for its forward thinking approach to education, where children receive a well rounded education and make at least expected progress.
We want our school to be a place where people work and play alongside each other happily and harmoniously.
We would like Hurstbourne Tarrant to boast a stunning internal and external environment where focussed learning, creativity and fun are the basis of the exciting curriculum.
We want people to comment on how they ‘always enjoy visiting our school’.
Our School has 5 Ethos Values - REACH. 3 of these are core Christian values which represent us as Church of England (Controlled) Primary School.
Respect - In our school we will be polite, think about how others feel and show respect for everyone and everything.
Effort - In our school we will always try our best.
Aim High - In our school we will aim high and set ourselves new challenges
Care and Love - In our school we will care and love ourselves, each other and our environment!
Honesty - In our school we will be honest with one another in our work and play
