About Us

Our Ethos


To make learning an enjoyable and challenging experience, preparing our pupils for life. To ensure all pupils and staff achieve as highly as possible.

Aldersbrook will be a successful learning culture, which will enable pupils to become effective, enthusiastic and independent learners for life.

Values are principles that guide behaviour. At Aldersbrook adults are encouraged to model values and to give time for discussion and reflection. We believe that this empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens.

Our Values-based education philosophy underpins our work to actively promote fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, mutual respect and acceptance of those from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures. A rounded programme of assemblies and events promote children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, enabling them to develop their own moral and ethical compass to guide what is right and what is wrong.

Each month we will focus on a new value which will be promoted through lessons, discussions and also in the playground. We encourage children to talk about the value at home and to share and celebrate the value with adults and children both at home and at school.

The month's value will be shown on the 'Home Page'.


We aspire to be:

  1. A school community that values every day, every lesson, every opportunity and everyone. No child left behind!
  2. A safe nurturing learning community that instils confidence, resilience and compassion.
  3. A school that provides a wide range of creative experiences that inspires excellence, a sense of awe and wonder and a thirst for knowledge.
  4. An entire school community that models high expectations, social and moral responsibility, global citizenship and a sense of pride.
  5. Empower children to make informed decisions about their health, safety and well-being and ensure that they are prepared for life beyond school.
  6. A responsive, reflective and supportive staff who are passionate about inspiring future generations.
  7. A school celebrated for innovation, integrity and spirit.
  8. A community that embraces Aldersbrook's motto: LET'S LEARN TOGETHER!
