North Featherstone Junior and Infant School - Values and Ethos


Our Values

At North Featherstone Junior and Infant School, we always put our children first, and value each one individually. Children and the wider school community are always treated with respect and we teach them all to understand and remain true to the schools core values. 

Our Core Values are Respect, Resilience, Aspiration and Success. 

North Featherstone Junior and Infant school is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment where each child and adult respects each other equally eliminating all forms of discrimination. We aim to teach the children the tools to be resilient and to aspire and succeed in all aspects of their education - academically, socially and emotionally.

It is important that we provide all pupils with a safe, secure, exciting and happy environment in order for them to achieve these values.

We aim to be an inclusive school and value the many different life experiences that the children bring to our school and celebrate their diversity. We want to ensure that we can support children through practical steps and plans of action.

British values are integral to our vision - they are promoted in much of what we do, during school assemblies, Religious Education, and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) sessions. Please visit the Key Information tab - School Policies for a copy of our British Values Statement.



At our schools we believe that every child deserves the best and we have high expectations of all of our children, staff, parents and the wider community to create the best environment for them to succeed and achieve these values. As a school we have a fantastic approach to learning, and are a friendly and inclusive school, who cares about its children ensuring that they are all nurtured and valued.
