Aims, Ethos and Vision


At Benfieldside Primary School we are committed to providing an exciting, creative, inclusive curriculum, underpinned by high quality teaching and learning, through which pupils of all abilities and starting points can make progress, gain knowledge and skills, achieve and succeed.

Our Ethos, Aims and Values: 

Benfieldside Primary School aims to provide a welcoming, secure and caring environment in which all pupils and staff have the opportunity to succeed and to learn.

By recognising individual needs and qualities, we aim to develop mutual respect, self-discipline and the highest possible standards of academic achievement. We all uphold the British Values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.

Our pupils and staff recognise and understand the importance of our three core values of:

  • Happiness: If you see someone without a smile give them one of yours

  • Perseverance: Mistakes are the stepping stones to learning

  • Respect: People may forget what you said, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel
