Ethos and Values

At Padiham Primary School we aim for high standards in everything we do with a motivated and determined effort to improve outcomes for all of our pupils. Children are encouraged to be self-disciplined in achieving success, respectful of others, active in their learning and to express their voice and opinions on things that are important to them.

As a school we aim to

•           Build up children’s good self-image and self-respect by finding the positive in each child knows their self-worth and feels valued;

•           Impart a broad, balanced, exciting and stimulating curriculum;

•           Give a clear expectations of children’s behaviour

•           Develop in children a tolerance and respect of all others, irrespective of background, culture, religion, ethnicity, ability or appearance;

•           Foster good home-school relationships, supporting and being supported by parents.


Our school values:


Respect, citizenship, collaboration, independence, resilience, curiosity, happiness, creativity

These principles and values allow our pupils to leave Padiham primary school with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
