Values and Ethos
Leys Primary School Values & Ethos
We, at Leys Primary School, will provide a broad and balanced curriculum for our children to acquire the knowledge, practise the skills and develop understanding to thrive in the 21st century and contribute positively to their community and global society.
Leys Primary School motto is ‘RESILIENCE to Achieve; ASPIRATION to Succeed’ – all of our children know that we have high expectations of them and we know that every child deserves a safe, happy, supportive and purposeful learning environment in which to grow and thrive.
At each assembly our pupils recite the School Creed:
‘We are the Leys School students.
Today we have the resilience to be the best that we can be.
We are responsible for our choices, good or bad.
We are unique and special.
We will cheer each other to success.
We all aspire to succeed.’
