PPAT Vision & Values

At PPAT Staff and Governors will provide the highest academic standards in a safe and caring environment.  We develop a love of learning to last our children throughout their lives.  Our exciting curriculum and extra-curricular activities broaden our children's horizons, giving them a greater sense of themselves and the importance of others as individuals.

We are committed to a strong partnership between home and school, secondary schools, the local community and industry in order to become centres of excellence.  Such excellence not only applies to academic studies, but also sporting and creative pursuits and the recruitment of high quality staff at all levels.

Our children are known for their high standards of behaviour and their sense of citizenship within the community and in modern Britain.

Our Key Values and Aims are to: 

  • Ensure outstanding teaching alongside a culture of high expectations and high attainment, where all individuals (children and staff) are able to reach their full potential, and take pride in their achievements.
  • Create a safe and stimulating environment, providing lifelong learning experiences which meet individual needs.
  • Promote and develop spiritual, moral and cultural growth.
  • Provide good examples that children will use as a reference for positive behaviour.
