Values & Aims

Mission Statement

At Richard Taylor School we educate every child in our safekeeping within a caring and Christian community. We open minds, unlock potential and celebrate success. We seek to establish a life-long love of learning. Our children are part of God’s world and we help them to understand their place in it.

We create a welcoming, stimulating and disciplined environment where everyone is valued and people grow together in a culture of respect and support.  Our school is a place where children enjoy working and playing together to develop independence, self-confidence and self-esteem.

The values that make our school special….

Below are the nine values chosen by the children at school to reflect the things that they feel make our school special.   They are celebrated in every classroom and form the themes for our acts of worship during the year.

Friendship, Trust, Respect, Determination, Sportsmanship, Peace, Forgiveness, Responsibility, Service.
