Values and Ethos

Our Mission Statement

To develop a love of learning, enabling all children to reach their full potential.

Rudston Primary School will offer every child- whatever their own individual characteristics- the chance to thrive and achieve their own potential as that develops and changes. This will be an inclusive school where all will be treated equally and given equality of opportunity regardless of gender, special needs disability or race.

Teaching and learning will be matched to the appropriate stage of children’s physical, mental, social, spiritual, moral and cultural development needs.

At Rudston Primary School, education is about children experiencing the joy of discovery, solving problems and being creative. It is also about developing their self confidence as learners and maturing socially and emotionally. We will combine high standards with high expectations and with a broad and rich curriculum. Education will be the fusion of excellence and enjoyment.

Communication, Language and Literacy , Numeracy and ICT will be the backbone of our pupils’ success in learning. We will build on the strengths to serve the needs of our children   using the skills of everyone in the school. We will drive our own improvement. In setting our own challenging targets , we can  recognise we can always do better.

We will build a partnership with parents by giving good information, communicating well and by weaving the school into the fabric of our community. The school will promote community cohesion through its teaching, learning and the curriculum.

Rudston Primary School will be a welcoming, friendly, bright and lively, happy place where children, parents and staff feel secure, where good behaviour is expected and where they enjoy growing up.
