Ethos & Values

Our Purpose, Goals & Values 

At Longthorpe, we value everyone and believe that we all have something we can learn from one another.

Our learners will contribute to improving the world at differing levels developing into empathic, global citizens, who collaborate effectively through strong communication skills that will enable them to share and deepen their understanding around real world issues, with the hope of making it a better place.

Our children will be effective learners; articulate, literate and numerate.   They will be confident, independent thinkers who have a good sense of self-worth and belief in their own capacity to succeed.  They will take risks with their learning so the fear of failure does not limit their learning capacity.

Children at Longthorpe will develop a strong sense of responsibility for their own learning, holding high aspirations of themselves, their achievements and futures.   They will be effective collaborators with a good range of communication and leadership skills, giving them the ability to clearly articulate their ideas and emotions, as well as consider those of others.

A strong home school partnership is integral to children's success and is highly valued; we encourage parents to take an active part in their children’s education and we provide opportunities for this.  We aim to provide all children with a safe, happy and nurturing learning environment, as well as support parents/carers with ways to help their children improve at home.

We look forward to working with you to ensure your children receive a high quality academic and pastoral education that prepares them for their future.


Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
