Ethos & Values

At the heart of Cabot Primary School is a belief that school is a place where everybody feels valued and respected. Everyone is proud of their personal achievements and the achievement of the school.

We believe that school must be a welcoming and caring place for all. We recognise that children, families, staff and the local community all must work in partnership for our children to achieve their full potential.

We have a commitment to providing our children with a quality education that is broad, balanced, challenging and fun. We believe in setting high expectations in all areas of school life to ensure that children have the opportunity to do their best, where all are inspired and encouraged to have high expectations.

By creating a safe and secure learning environment, we believe that our children are motivated to discover their talents, develop their interests and have the self confidence to become successful lifelong learners.
