At George Spicer Primary School we value our pupils as individuals and endeavour to support them to reach their full potential. Our community is supportive of our efforts to give our children the very best education, which we do through our three core values; Respect, Responsibility and Perseverance. We recognise that everyone has an important part to play in children’s development and that all contributions no matter how big or small are valued. We therefore seek to work in close partnership with parents and other professionals at all times.
We pride ourselves on being a Rights Respecting School and our pupils learn in a caring, secure and nurturing environment, where all children feel valued and can develop physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally. We are committed to providing a supportive learning environment where every child is guided and encouraged to become a confident, independent learner; fulfilling their potential in all areas of their learning. We expect children to fail but also to embrace that failure as a step on the path to mastery and excellence. We aim to make learning ‘sticky’ by teaching our honest, diverse and inclusive curriculum in a memorable way.
In addition, we constantly strive to improve standards and have high expectations of all pupils. As a research-informed school, we value continued professional development and invest in this so we can give our children the best. Children leave George Spicer Primary School with a good grasp of the basic knowledge and skills needed for life, have a positive growth mindset and are able to work collaboratively in a team. We expect high standards of behaviour and the support of parents in this matter is invaluable.
I hope that our website provides you with a comprehensive introduction to our values, expectations and way of working. We place a strong emphasis on working hard, supporting one another and good standards of behaviour and courtesy. We uphold the British Values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.

“Education is about empowerment, about cultivating a human being to the highest possible potential – a tool not only for improvement but for enhancing perception. The children must blossom and flower into great human beings.”
