Hermitage Parimary School

Vision and Values

Hermitage is committed to preparing our children to be successful citizens in the wider community, with skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that will prepare them for the opportunities and challenges of the 21st Century.

At Hermitage Primary School we want children to be happy and enjoy their learning.

We want children to be healthy and stay safe. The education we provide should enable children to realise their dreams and make positive contributions to their own community and the wider world. Children have a right to be given choices so that they can reflect on and take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour. We want children to be confident and self-motivated, both academically and socially.

The school works hard to provide an inspiring learning environment that promotes high expectations, independent learning and appropriate challenge. The resources are accessible, suitable for each child and well maintained.

The staff at Hermitage strive to be positive role models, inspiring children to have and pursue their own aspirations. The staff team bring to the school a variety of skills, experiences, interests and knowledge that inform their practice and enable children to access and enjoy a varied school experience.

Hermitage school teaches children a wide range of skills to become confident individuals in the outside world. The school involves the wider community in playing an active part in the children’s learning and education.

At Hermitage we are committed to ensuring that every child makes good progress in their learning, and leaves the school able to participate successfully at an academic, social and emotional level in secondary school and beyond.

To enable this to happen:

  • we have high expectations of every child;
  • we plan work that allows them extend, consolidate and apply their learning;
  • we assess and give feedback on their learning and teach children to assess their own learning;
  • we listen to children and help them to solve problems;
  • we encourage them to take responsibility for themselves and their peers, and for the school as a whole;
  • we make good use of data to ensure that all children make expected progress and plan effective interventions if they don’t.
