Our Vision and Aims

School Vision

As a Creative, Cooperative Community we aim to work together as a team, to provide inspirational and challenging learning opportunities for all our children, embedding basic skills and motivating them so that they can achieve their full potential.  We also aim to develop skills for life, based on our core values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. We also believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others, which  are crucial to ensure our children develop into responsible and articulate citizens who are ready for the future.


We will achieve this by:

  • Promoting the highest academic standards possible and ensuring an enriched, balanced and broad curriculum

  • All children are challenged suited to their needs

  • All pupils feel valued, safe and secure in an environment which is respectful and honest

  • Children will become resilient learners through a growth mind-set approach

  • Provide positive role models, recognising success through practice and perseverance and with the support of learning partners

  • Ensuring a well-resourced, calm and stimulating environment, where everybody is respected and valued

  • Supporting pupils and their families    


At Chiltern Primary School we believe that a child’s early education is formative and enduring. The lessons we teach give the knowledge, skills, beliefs and attitudes that inform future choices and life’s direction. They enable children to begin to discover who they are and what their place in a rapidly changing world might be. Our work is to provide children with a caring and safe environment in which to discover the adventure that is life.

We will deliver our mission by teaching the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum as our core curriculum along with the four strands of the Open Futures approach. We always actively encourage a growth mindset approach with everything we do.

The Open Future strands are:-

Ask It! – philosophical enquiry

Grow It! – growing healthy food and a healthy natural environment

Cook It! – creating healthy and nutritious meals

Film It! – communicating in a digital age
