Our School Values

Our school mission statement:

High Expectations, High Ercall

High Ercall Primary School provides a safe and secure environment, in which our happy and confident children are nurtured and valued as unique individuals. Our children learn to become resilient, self-assured and respectful of all, thriving on the high expectations of behaviour and learning which are evident across school. Our values-based curriculum nurtures curiosity and creativity by inspiring, engaging and challenging the children. Our children take responsibility for their learning and work in partnership with their parents and the school. They are equipped with the skills to reflect upon themselves as learners, and to become resourceful young people ready to make a positive contribution to their local community and the world around them.
