Rillington's mission statement:
We provide a welcoming and caring school community in a happy, healthy, safe and secure setting where pupils and staff live by our mission statement 'Every child matters, every moment counts'. Each day we set out to create a stimulating and challenging high-quality learning environment for pupils and staff. All of this ensures that each member of the school community is enabled to fulfil their individual aspirations and to achieve their personal best.
Rillington Primary School plays a vital role in developing educational excellence within our community. We offer high-quality, inclusive and innovative teaching and learning. The school works closely with the community to raise the aspirations, expectations and educational achievements of all. All learners, regardless of their ability, benefit from the school's approaches to teaching and learning. We achieve this by ensuring 'Every child matters, every moment counts'.
Values are the principles that drive our thinking and behaviour. They influence our actions and attitudes, and guide us through life in all that we do. They influence our relationship with ourselves and others. We decided that the following values are the most important to us and they are embedded in all we do at Rillington Primary School.
Respect - respect for themselves, each other, adults, visitors, the school building and our local community.
Enthusiasm - be enthusiastic for learning, for school, for a range of educational experiences.
Safe - pupils, staff and our local community feel both physically and mentally safe in our school environment.
Pride - we are proud of who we are, where we have come from and what we can be.
Encourage - pupils and staff encourage others to try new experiences, build upon their existing skills or to update their knowledge.
Curiosity - be curious about learning and our place in the world around us.
Thrive - pupils are encouraged to learn, talk and understand about emotions and feelings so they can self-regulate/thrive, ensuring they are learning ready.
