Swanton Abbott Community Primary School

Our Values

Our values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.  

We have chosen six values that we all think are important for everyone who learns, works or is part of our school (they are also closely linked to British Values).   Children, parents, carers and staff have all had an opportunity to think about these values.
