Our School Values and Vision

Our school vision statement:

High Expectations, High Ercall

Our vision is that High Ercall Primary School will provide a safe and secure environment, in which our children are nurtured to become happy, confident and valued as unique individuals. All our children will become resilient, self-assured and respectful of all, and thrive upon the high expectations of behaviour and learning evident across school. Our curriculum will nurture curiosity and creativity by inspiring, challenging and engaging all children. Our children will take responsibility for their learning and we will work in partnership with their parents to support their growth. They will leave us equipped with the skills to reflect upon themselves as learners, and to become resourceful young people ready to make a positive contribution to their community, their future learning and the world around them.
