'Do to others what you would want them to do to you'  Matthew 7:12



We invited all stakeholders ; pupils, parents  teachers, support staff and  governors, to review  our schools'  'Vision and Ethos ' We asked  them to share their ideas,  to help us to review our schools'  'Vision and Ethos' , as part of the  whole school community . Each of the stakeholder groups  agreed  values  and approaches which  they  felt  are essential to capturing what makes  Ann Edwards Primary School successful ; historically, currently and in the future.

These ideas  were then merged to produce one final ' Vision and Ethos' Wordle ( shown at the top of the page.) This reflects  all of our views together. The similarities between stakeholders responses clearly showed a very distinctive shared set of  key values and shows our collective overriding commitment to:-  Inclusion, Respect , Support , Achievement , Nurture and a Happy learning environment.
