Aims & Ethos

  • Mission Statement

    Everyone at Draycott & Rodney Stoke First School is committed to creating a caring atmosphere in which each child may reach the highest possible standards in all aspects of their work. It is important for each child to have confidence in him or her self, and we nurture this through positive encouragement and celebration of achievement at all levels.

    Learning should be both challenging and enjoyable, and we offer a wide range of activities and opportunities to suit each child. We also place great emphasis on the development of personal and social skills and positive attitudes, so that children learn what it means to be caring and responsible members of the community. This sense of community, and the importance of everyone’s contribution within it, is an essential part of your child’s experience at our school.

    Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.

    Creating a safe and happy environment where each child can grow academically, socially, spiritually and emotionally.

    Together Everyone Achieves More
    We have linked each of these words to two school values, which will be taught in more detail through our collective worships and class work:

    Respect – Together – Compassion
    Equality – Everyone – Justice
    Success – Achieves – Endurance
    Hope – More – Community

    We will keep you updated on which value is being introduced through our new Family Values Newsletters.
